Scaffold Batch Annotated XML Driver (SCAFML)

The following XML driver file includes references to the batch processing version of Scaffold for most elements and attributes.

The default values are those used in Scaffold Desktop UI. Interact with the XML sections to add or remove attributes and build your SCAFML. Use the copy buttons to paste into a text editor for review. Finally, save this file with the extension *.scafml.
