Time really flies when you’re working on cool features, and we most certainly did this quarter. This release of Fonto XML Editor contains the long-awaited beta version of drag and drop in the outline view (previously known as structure view). The ability to mark content as read-only, and a long-requested addition to the find and replace, searching for the whole word matches only.
Drag & Drop
This release introduces a new Drag & Drop interface for the outline view. This feature allows users to (more) intuitively make changes to the structure of a document without having to move parts step by step.
Default implementations are provided for single document editors as well as for DITA maps (in the fontoxml-dita add-on). Applications with customized structure view configuration or other special requirements may need to register one or more custom operations. Please refer to our guide for more details. Do note that as this feature is in beta, it needs to be explicitly turned on through the configuration file.
FontoXML now offers the capability to configure content as read-only. Read-only elements and their children are greyed out and may not be modified in any way. When using our comments add-on authors are still able to leave comments on the read-only content.
Find and replace, whole word only
The find and replace drop-down now offers a new checkmark to search for whole word only. When checked, only results exactly matching the whole word will be provided through this functionality.
