Toggle links are normal hyperlinks so editing the links is basically just the same as editing any other kind of hyperlink. They can also be copied and moved in the same way as normal text. The toggle content in expanding section toggles is just normal text in a single-cell table and can be edited normally. Note, however, that you must move the link and table of expanding text toggles together! They will not work if you separate them.
The text of inline text toggles is stored in the Edit Toggle dialog and can be edited by double-clicking on the toggle link.
Expanding image toggles can be edited by double-clicking on them.
Toggle links and settings:
To edit an expanding section or inline text toggle just double-click on its link in the editor (it looks just like an ordinary hyperlink), or right-click on it and select Edit in the context menu. This opens the Edit Toggle dialog in which you can change all the settings of the toggle.
Expanding inline text toggles contain plain text only and must be edited in the Edit Toggle dialog, where you can also apply a style to make the text stand out from the rest of the topic page.
Editing the contents of expanding section toggles is exactly the same as editing normal text in the editor. You just have to be careful that all the text is inside the table and that you never insert more than one empty paragraph between the expanding section's table and its header.
Expanding image toggles:
Just double-click on the toggle in the editor to access its settings.
You will often want to use the same type of formatted toggle repeatedly – for example like the toggles used for the individual instructions on this page. Instead of reformatting the entire toggle every time, it is much easier to store a 'blank' toggle as a snippet and just insert it in the editor every time you want to use it.
1.Create the complete toggle you want to reuse with all components, using some dummy text in places where text is necessary. The snippet for the toggles used on this page looks like this, for example:
2.Select the entire item you want to reuse.
3.Select File > Save Snippet in the Project > Manage Topics tab and save the snippet in your project folder with a descriptive name.
4.To use the snippet, click in the place where you want to insert a new item, then select the Snippet tool in Write > Insert Object. Activate the options "From File" and "Copy & paste into text". Then select the snippet and click OK.
See this chapter in the help for more details on using snippets:
There are no restrictions on copying toggles. The copies will be fully functional, both within the same topic and when you copy them to other topics.
When you copy expanding section toggles you just need to make sure that you copy both the toggle header and the toggle table containing the expanding content, because these are two separate items.
Caution with expanding section toggles to which you have assigned IDs
You only have to be a little careful when you copy toggles in which you have entered the toggle IDs yourself. When the IDs are manually entered they will not be updated automatically. This is OK when you copy a toggle to a different topic but duplicate IDs within the same topic will cause conflicts.
When you copy toggles containing manually-entered IDs within the same topic you should always edit the toggle and update the IDs. (Help+Manual automatically highlights toggles with duplicate ID conflicts in red.)
