Reply to: Tip: Getting between closing tags in Normal View

If you do move the cursor into the right postion (via script or otherwise) that will be reflected in the “mini context” menu, which appears as a sort of sideways (or flattened) treeview below the document. This is constantly updated automatically in both TagsOn and Normal views.

DITA example:
topic / body / p
Meaning: you're in a

element inside a and the root is

DocBook example (similar to your first example but assuming the document root is not

but one of the more typical DocBook root elements):
book / chapter / para / emphasis
Meaning: you're in an element inside a

inside a and the root is

Perhaps we could improve this somehow, though I'm not sure what additional information we could put in there to help.
