Visual Editor breaks YAML

It seems, the Visual Editor is around for a while but is it really supposed to work yet?


Whatever I try editing with the Visual Editor, even if it's just the Info section of a trivial API, it will break the YAML.
It just scrambles the keyword and the value of the property changed in the editor.


I tried Safari and Chrome on macOS.

    Hi omonien 


    I'm sorry you are experiencing this, we never want SwaggerHub to break someone's API.


    In order for us to dig into this and provide a solution, do you mind creating a support ticket here: with your SwaggerHub username, organization, and API in which this is happening.

      Note: Visual Editor is in development, and new functionality will be added in the coming months. Please be aware of the current limitations:

      • “Add” and “delete” features are not available for operations and models. Use the Code Editor to do this.

      • Visual Editor is currently available for APIs only, but not for domains.

      • Visual Editor does not support editing referenced path items such as

      I would like to join that question - is there a community around that is engineering / implementing / testing - feature requests for the Visual Editor.


      Myself, I was looking for the Add Operations - the documentation told me - it is a known limitation.
