5.2.11 Editing hints
220.127.116.11 Firefox and Mozilla
Pressing enter once in Firefox inserts a newline (a <br>). To start a new paragraph, press enter twice.
The toolbar buttons for cut/copy/paste won't work because of security restrictions, though you can configure Firefox to allow this for a specific site. More information is given when you click on one of these buttons while in Firefox. However, using the keyboard shortcuts you can perform these operations without any special configuration.
When you add a link or apply a styling to some words on the end of a line, it might be difficult (read: impossible) to 'move after' the link or styling. You can interrupt the link or styling by moving the cursor to the end of the line, and pressing the 'Remove link' or 'Remove formatting' button (thus without making a selection).
18.104.22.168 Internet Explorer (IE)
Merging table cells in IE works a bit counter-intuitive. You cannot simply select multiple cells and click on the merge cell button. Instead, put the cursor in one cell, and click on the merge cell button. You will then be asked how many rows and columns you want to merge.
22.214.171.124 All browsers
To copy content from one document to the other, it is recommended to open the source document in the editor and copy from there. This way you make sure you copy the original source content, e.g. with "daisy:" links intact.
126.96.36.199 Editing fields
188.8.131.52.1 Editing hierarchical field values
Hierarchical field values are entered as a slash-separated sequence. For example: abc / def / ghi. The whitespace around the separator slashes is not significant, it will be dropped. An extra slash at the start or end is allowed and will be ignored. Slashes separated by only whitespace will be dropped (i.o.w. they will not cause the addition of an element in the hierarchical path). If you want to use the slash character in a value itself, this can be done by escaping it as a double slash (//).
