Hello, I really appreciate the tool that you guys have provided. I'm using it regularly. Today i have encountered an issue: i was trying to format a large document (1 531 054 characters - minified version). The result tab is blank. I think it is related to the size of the doc. Can you lplease ook on to that or specify the max size that we can format? Thanks for the great work you are doing,

I tried the xml format with sort, and I wonder if you might consider extra options. i.e. I want to sort elements by their attributes but I would prefer to have control over whether the attributes themselves are sorted horizontally in the output. So if the first attribute is "name" and that is most important to me, then I don't want it thrown to the end of the node def by attrib sorting. And if the nodes have alphabetically preceding attributes that have varying values I don't want to sort nodes by the sorted attributes list, but by specific nominated attributes (so if I prefer to sort "item" nodes by attribute "name" then "date" perhaps they can be brought to the front of the sorted attributes and sorting of nodes will naturally be correct.
Anyway thanks for reading this far :-)
