trouble defining an elementNovember 2, 2009 at 5:34 pmParticipants 0Replies 1Last Activity 12 years, 7 months ago
I'm having trouble defining an element. The instructions in the help begin with:
1. In the Element List, double-click
I'm assuming that
refers to the title bar of the Element List, which is the only place I can find a reference to “Insert Element.” Double-clicking this title bar toggles between docking and undocking the list. It doesn't do anything else.
If I right-click this “Insert Element” title bar, I see two options: Allow Docking and Hide. There is nothing that seems to indicate that I could add an element.
Any help would be appreciated, thanks.Derek Read November 30, 2009 at 10:29 am

Are you thinking that you can define an element for an existing DTD or Schema? If so I think you are misunderstanding the help. You can only define new elements when working with well-formed documents. If you are working with a document of a certain type (one that specifies a DTD or Schema such as DITA, DocBook, etc) the Element List only allows you to insert elements already defined in that DTD or Schema.
Hope that makes sense. If not I need some more details about what you are wanting to do.
