Change one attriubte on more elements

Mon Apr 20, 2015 5:40 pm

I am using the Eclipse Oxygen Author (Version: 15.2)

I have to review and edit some documents containing CALS tables (DITA Framework). So my problem is: Every row has to get the same value for a attribute. So I am looking for a possiblity, where I can select all rows from the table and set the value directly for all rows.

I have tried to select all rows and change the value, but it changes only the last row attribute.

Is there a way to accomplish my request in the configuration?
Maybe as action or another way.

Best regards,

Hi Denis,

Unfortunately the Attributes view can only change attributes on a single element, so it does not work on multiple selected elements.
We plan to improve it in a future version so I will update this forum post when this happens.
Do you need this for potential customers? Using our API you can probably implement your custom Author operation which sets a certain attribute on multiple selected elements.
