Reply to: Support for topicset and topicsetref

Currently, I think “XML View of Map” (Tags On view) is the only way to construct meaningful topicset/topicsetref markup (meaning that the Element List and Attribute Inspector would be used). This should be “nicer” than Plain Text view (at least I think so).

The Map Editor (in Resource Manager) has a menu choice called “Specialized Reference…” on the Insert menu. You can use this to insert any element as you type in the element name to insert. From there you get the generic topicref properties dialog (which exposes attributes on various tabs). You could use this to insert a topicset. It is by no means what we could call “first-class support” but it might help you in the short term depending on your author's needs.

If you could send us some example files they might help us to evaluate what a first-class implementation for this might need to look like.
