Text block preview

1. Text block previewThe preview panel displays how the text block will look like with the current settings.
The block looks and behaves (e.g. for Spoiler template) the same way like it does in the final HTML document.

Settings group tab

2. Settings group tab
Use the tab buttons to switch across the text block settings groups.
A text block has three groups of settings:
  • Main settings - specify the block position and behavior.
  • Visual settings - specify the appearance of the block.
  • Logical settings - specify a set of logical rules what content should be output into final document under various conditions. This page describes the group.

Text block templates

3. Text block templates
Please, select a template to apply its predefined settings to the current text block.
To override the template predefined settings for the specific text block, check the option for a corresponding section.
Note: if you are in the template customization mode a text field with the template name is displayed instead of the templates list.

Export rules

4. Export rules
Use this section to set a composite logical rule that will determine under what conditions the block is included into the final document upon the export or excluded from it. 
That composite rule consists of several basic logical conditions. An actual value of the composite rule is calculated each time the project is being exported to any format.
If the calculated value is true the block will be included into the final document, otherwise it's excluded.
There are two types of basic conditions
  • validating if the current Format of export is included in the set of allowed formats;
  • validating if the current value of Variable meets a specific criterion.
So, assign various values to variables right before export to manage the output content of the final document.
The approach is handy for creating documents of various levels of detailing from the same source project.
For instance: User manual, Operator manual, and Administrator manual.
