Create entries in table of contents, index, and map via context menu

In WYSIWYG design view you can add selected words to TOC, index, and map by using the context menu item ‘Add Entry…’.

AddEntry en

A dialog opens where you can control the entries for TOC, index and map.

AddEntryDlg en

In the ComboBox for the map items all entries referencing the edited HTML topic are shown. If desired, the entries can be edited in the ComboBox to create a completely new entry to the map file.

If an anchor is specified, the selected text is marked with this anchor and the map item references exact this position.

Fixed Problems

  • If the cursor was on a link during a switch from WYSIWYG design view to code view, the link was split.
  • Occasionally the preview application was not shutdown completely.
  • The CSS code editor sometimes threw an exception with specific CSS content.
  • For tables containing and/or tags, it was not possible in the table editor to add rows.
