This portal is to open public enhancement requests against IBM Power Systems products, including IBM i. To view all of your ideas submitted to IBM, create and manage groups of Ideas, or create an idea explicitly set to be either visible by all (public) or visible only to you and IBM (private), use the IBM Unified Ideas Portal (https://ideas.ibm.com).
We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:
Start by searching and reviewing ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted, and add a comment, vote, or subscribe to updates on them if they matter to you. If you can't find what you are looking for,
Post an idea.
Get feedback from the IBM team and other customers to refine your idea.
Follow the idea through the IBM Ideas process.

I have a question - is the original submitter keeping XML file in IBM i source physical files? The term IBM i-Sourcefiles suggests that. So is the member type XML? I believe it has to be for it to appear in RDi RSE as an XML file.
When I right-click an XML file and go to the Open with option, I see 6 options. The first image in the attached document shows this. I believe that the last editor I used is highlighted. That document shows a sequence of choosing an external editor that I installed. In my case, it is also the editor associated in Windows XML files, so that is an alternative to using the Browse... option, if you've set up file associations in Windows.
I find that the last editor you pick in Open with will be the one that is used if you just click on Open when you right-click, or if you double-click on the XML file in RSE.
The options to open with are these - my explanations might not be completely correct, but reflect what I see in 188.8.131.52 of RDi:
Basic LPEX Editor - this presents the text with start and end tags in a different color
Text Editor - this presents just the simple text
XML Editor - this always comes up with the RDi editor that has a Design tab and a source tab
System Editor - this seems to be the Windows file associated application
Default Editor - this seems to be the XML Editor in RDi - there are ways to set this, I believe.
As to validation, in RDi Preferences I have an XML section, and in there are XML Files and XML Schema Files, both have a Validation section. There is a section in the Help, under Eclipse documentation, on editing XML files. It has information on validation there.
