Updating XML comments via DocProject

Is there a way to update the XML pages directly via DocProject? Right now, when I enter text in the UI, the text is saved to the help project and then I have to manually update the comments in the actual XML code, which is double the work for me. We really didn't want me to have to update the XML files directly and were hoping that DocProject would allow me to update the descriptions, etc., and have the actual XML files updated.

Hi,

As of now DocProject's XML documentation editor can only be used to write external comments.

Somebody has already requested the feature that you're looking for, so you may want to add your vote:

At this time I don't plan on including this feature in the next release because it will require much effort and time that I just don't have right now, but I'm considering it for the future.
