Author mode - improvements in inserting of elements

Hello, in Oxygen 11 it is impossible to place elements into inappropriate positions. It is nice feature, but it could be improved a bit. This request is based on my natural sense when a new element is being appended to the previous one. If previous element of my DocBook document is 'para' (block ele...

Hello,

it would be nice to allow searching also in tags in Author mode. If somebody looks for some attribute value, it is necessary now to switch to the text mode. Not all users are familiar with the text mode...

Hello, in spite of some improvents in this area it is still hard to select last position before nested element or entity, see this example: http://img14.imageshack.us/img14/7016/spaceys.png .

Enabling 'tags display mode' shortcuts form the text mode

Hello,

it would be nice to enable 'tags display mode' shortcuts (defined in Preferences|Menu Shortcut Keys) also from text mode. After using the defined combination of keys Oxygen could automatically switch to the Author mode and show tags accordingly.

Re: Spell check - casing after abbreviations

So I would enhance a bit my original post:

it would be nice if spell check knew that after "e.g.", "etc." or "i.e." it is ok to continue with lower case characters if Case Sensitive option is checked.

Re: Author mode - DocBook - insert para via action

Thanks for your patience.
Instead of third step please click on DocBook toolbar icon 'Add paragraph'. That's it. With your method everything is fine. But Add paragraph action works differently.

Author mode - allow duplicating spaces on 'pre' content only

Hello,

it would be nice to prevent user from inserting several consecutive spaces in content with no 'preserve whitespace' set. Although these extra spaces are ignored on next opening of document so there is no problem, it is confusing a litle bit.

Hello,

It is not possible to select the whole column/row in a table and move it up/down or left/right. It also cannot be copied. If values in one column have to be copied into another table, they must be picked up one by one. Is there planned any improvement in this?
