Re: Preventing users adding words to dictionary

Correction:

"I have tried creating the correct dictionary .tdi file in the users home directory and flagging it as read-only, but this just throws an error when starting the dialog. Is there anyway to do this?"

Re: Unwanted reformatting

To clarify, its not the view in the Author mode which is updated, it is the actual XML document as viewable in Text mode. Prior to the insert there is no formatting (no tag indenting, no maximum line lengths etc) after the insert there is formatting (tags are indented, long lines are wrapped etc).

Re: Displaying whitespace icons in Author mode

Sorry to hear that this is not possible. Unfortunatly our users, who aren't sufficiently comfortable to edit directly in XML, do need to see exact whitespace locations as the documents they are editing are print ready document markup. Incorrect spacing, tabs, eol etc can cause layout issues latter i...

Re: User intercation in custom protocol handler

Thanks for the answer, clear and concise as allways.

I just assumed that without a context (parent window) something ugly would happen when I tried to display the JDialog - I guess that'll teach me for not just trying things out.

Re: Editing attribute values via Author mode

FYI

The attribute editor you mention also does not trigger a display refresh when the attribute's value is renderd in author mode via a CSS content statement.
