JSON document formatting doesn't work in the latest version?
Problem reported by Scott Maskiel - 10/27/2023 at 9:26 AM
I've just installed the latest version of Liquid Studio ( and can no longer format JSON documents.  I'm running the Community edition on Windows 11 x64.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open a large JSON document, in my case the file size is ~400Mb
2. Either click the "Format Document" button or use the keyboard shortcut (Ctrl-K, Ctrl-D)
3. Click "Yes" in the dialog box asking if you'd like to overwrite the file, as it's too large to format in memory
4. Receive the error "Failed to format the XML document.  Unexpected token."
