Getting Started

The Editor

You create and edit your content in the Editor.

The image shows some of the important components of the editor referred to in this online help:

  1. The Navigation Menu

    The Navigation Menu shows the location of the topic. You can click any part of it to go to show the Resource View for a particular folder where this topic is, for instance.

  2. The Toolbar

    The Toolbar contains a number of tabs with most of the most common elements and actions you need to create and reuse content.

  3. The Element Structure Menu

    Shows the hierarchical structure of the XML in the document. In the image it shows that the current element (where the cursor is) is a listitem inside a list, inside a note, etc. (Sometimes this menu is just called Structure Menu for short)

  4. Current element

    The cursor location is what determines what is the current element. When you move the cursor you will see that the Element Structure Menu changes accordingly to show you the structure.

  5. The Element Context Menu

    The Element Context Menu has all the available elements that you can insert at that location (so called "valid" elements). You open it by pressing AltEnter, or also Enter on Mac.

The Editor can be opened in one of the following ways:

  • Click on a topic name in the Content manager.

  • Select Open in editor for a component in locations where this option is possible, e.g. in the Structure view

See section Authoring in Paligo on how to use the Editor.
