You are in the right place in XML Spy  - the help file has the following
with regards to options available to you re generating output.

The DTD/Schema | Generate Sample XML File... command generates an XML file
based on the currently active schema (DTD or XML Schema) in the main window.

The options listed in the pop-up window are:

Generate non-mandatory attributes - Activating this option generates not only mandatory attributes, but also the non-mandatory attributes, defined in the schema.

Generate non-mandatory elements - Activating this option generates not only mandatory, but also non-mandatory elements, defined in the schema.

Generate first choice of mandatory choice - Activating this option generates/inserts the first choice of a mandatory choice.

Generate X elements if marked repeatable in Schema/DTD - Activating this option generates the number of repeatable elements you enter in the text box.

Fill elements and attributes with data - Activating this option inserts the data type descriptors/values for the respective elements/attributes. For example: Boolean = 1, xsd:string = string, Max/Min inclusive = the value defined in the schema.
You should also be aware that for a particular DTD/Schema it may not be
possible to generate all elements within a sinlge instance. For example if
you had

<!ELEMENT branch (x | y) >

then branch could contain 'x' or 'y' but never both in a single instance.
