8.1 FIND does not find text in CDATA

The toggle type dropdown has a caption node where the content is defined in CDATA. The "Find" operation does not find text in those CDATA elements.
Am I missing some setting to do this? Thanks!!

Re: Dynamic snippets? Snippet as template?

@Nadia - thank you for your kind suggestion. I will look at this. @Tim - We are now running v8.0.1.5536. Thanks. I understand that the product does not do what I suggest. I've been looking at the wealth of documentation for text and HTML variables. Perhaps this usage with snippets can be accepted as...

Enhancement: shortcut for Save snippet to file

To save a snippet to a file, I use the Windows keystrokes "alt+PFLN". The shortcut list doesn't include this feature so that we can simplify that. Enhancement?

Thanks!

Enhancement: Easier access to snippets

I have a pattern that is quite cumbersome to perform a single function "replace the current text with a snippet". I'm hoping this can be streamlined. Steps: Select text ctrl+shift+d (my shortcut defined in H&M to insert snippet tab, tab to move from the OK button to the "..." button to select a snip...

Re: Multi-user Review with Version Control

Again, sincere thanks for taking the time to read and process each of my questions.
I completely understand the challenges. We'll be fine continuing to version-control from outside. And as far as reviewing changes, ouch such a pain, but we'll get through that as well. :)

Dynamic snippets? Snippet as template?

I've been through the forum and have found similar threads but they're all old. I'm hoping to create a snippet that functions as a template, where text in the topic fills the gaps. Examples: Download the %version version from %here . The black bold text would be static while the dynamic %text would ...

Re: Slash in Index keyword?

Thanks again for the follow-up. I'll try the URI encoding. I didn't think that would work (didn't go deep on the analysis) because %programdata% does appear in the index. If URI encoding is the answer, then for anyone else who stumbles on this thread, other reserved characters may need the same trea...

Re: Links in data-type dropdown

Ahh, good advice! I have a snippets project and use them all the time - as links. I haven't used the copy option in there, haha, I guess I will now.

Danke!

Re: Slash in Index keyword?

Thank you for looking into this! Yes, the issue is only with forward slashes. I will do something with the text to remove the slash, and appreciate a skin change whenever it happens.

Multi-user Review with Version Control

As noted in another thread, I'm new to H&M, so please be gentle... I've read the parts of the manual that seem relevant and don't have a solution to this. In our scenario I've been writing content into H&Mv8. I save and close H&M, then from Windows I commit to a Subversion repo. Someone else updates...

Links in data-type dropdown

When editing a page, I have a habit of using copy/paste to insert an empty dropdown toggle table. (Sorry, I'm new to H&M and don't know what that's called here yet. :oops:) Then I put the cursor in the text, type a new header, delete what was there, and it looks fine. But I just found out that this ...

Slash in Index keyword?

In a techdoc I thought it would be helpful to index Linux and Windows paths like this: /etc /foo %programdata% \CompanyName But after a build to HTML the links in the index return an Error dialog. 1) Is there a way to use slashes like this? 2) Is there a general way to escape reserved characters? 3)...
