Ribbon drop down options

Unread post by Ga Bowen » Wed Oct 20, 2021 10:26 am

If I want to insert an image I click on the Image button on the Write > Insert section. It also has the extremely useful Picture Shortcuts option if you click the down arrow.

Could we have this for Link, Variable and Snippet? There are common ones I use in each project I do and having them to hand would be extremely useful also.

I would also like an option to save a block of text and have that selectable as well. For example, the warnings I use in manuals are made up of a 2 column table, 1 column with an orange background, an image, and bold text. I would like to just click a dropdown, select this and have it appear in the topic.

Hi Gareth,

Those are all excellent ideas. I've passed them directly on to the development team. 8)
