    Object elements in XMetaL(R) Author Enterprise 8.0 Service Pack 1 come in as big ugly X images and they're hard to work with in Tags On View. You can't put in valid children.

    How can we at least make the image smaller?

    Any progress on the earlier post from DR:

    The way the DITA customization has been configured the element is rendered as an image, which means that you cannot see its child elements in TagsOn and Normal view or insert them there.

    The quick and easy solution is to do this in PlainText view. To treat as a regular element (not an image) so that its children can be seen and inserted will require making modifications to the CTM file for each particular DITA topic type. We'll pass this feedback along to our UI design people.

    I don't remember this particular issue from 6 years ago.
    Where are you quoting that message from? Was it from an email?
