Tips & Tricks - Workspace

Drag element to the workspace

When you drag an element to the workspace, and in doing so touch the "Zoom" or "Hidden area" tab, the Zoom or Hidden area will open respectively. This behavior can be switched off in the menu Extras / Options / Applications.

Deactivate the setting "Bring workspace/zoom/hidden area to foreground on drag & drop" here. This will switch off the automatic tab switching described above.

Open editor

The JavaScript editor can be opened from the workspace by pressing F12 and then maximized by pressing F11. Here, you do not necessarily have to have clicked on an element which contains JavaScript. If a VTL Include element is selected, pressing F12 will open the Velocity editor.

Select elements within a grouping

By holding down the left mouse button, you can drag to select multiple elements. However, this can be sometimes be difficult in a grouping, for example when groupings are too close together and you cannot find a good position to start the dragging from. Instead, you can select the grouping by clicking on it and then select all of the grouping's direct child elements with CTRL + A. You can also select an element within the grouping and press CTRL + A. All of the elements related to that element will then be selected.
