<h1>Plug-in Manifest Editor </h1>
<p>PDE provides a single form-based multi-page plug-in manifest editor that manages all plug-in files: <em>MANIFEST.MF</em>, <em>plugin.xml</em>, <em>fragment.xml</em> and <em>build.properties</em>. The plug-in manifest editor is used as though a single file is being edited; while, PDE handles the task of writing the data to the different files on disk. </p>
<p>For details on the individual editor pages, refer to the following documents:</p>
<ul>
  <li><a href="overview.htm">Plug-in Overview</a></li>
  <li><a href="dependencies.htm">Plug-in Dependencies</a></li>
  <li><a href="runtime.htm">Plug-in Runtime</a></li>
  <li><a href="extensions.htm">Plug-in Extensions</a></li>
  <li><a href="extension_points.htm">Plug-in Extension Points</a></li>
  <li><a href="build.htm">Plug-in Build</a></li>
</ul>

<h2>Manifest Editor Presentation</h2>
<p>By default, the plug-in manifest editor shows information and tabs on extensions, extension points and Equinox-specific <em>MANIFEST.MF</em> headers and attributes. If you do not wish to use these Eclipse-specific features, you can filter out these pages from the editor on the <strong>Plug-in Development</strong> property page of your plug-in project via <a class="command-link" href='javascript:executeCommand("org.eclipse.ui.window.preferences(preferencePageId=org.eclipse.pde.ui.MainPreferencePage)")'>
<img src="PLUGINS_ROOT/org.eclipse.help/command_link.png" alt="Open the main PDE preference page">
<strong>Properties &gt; Plug-in Development</strong>
</a> from   the context menu of plug-in projects. </p>
