Edit text seems not be possible in a group of text container
« on: September 05, 2017, 03:01:32 pm »
I noticed that if I group for exemple 2 text container, I cannot edit text in any container without ungrouping it.
Do you know of I can go into a group structure to edit text?

with alt-double-click you can edit one item in a group...

it's mostly not so a good idea to use this too often, but -- from time to time -- it can be handy.

Thanks so much, with Alt I can select the group, and then call the prompt for the full text editor (more secure than directly editing the text ouside the text editor).

Thanks so much !

once you have alt-selected the item in the group, you can also press the E key to enter the edit mode... if you need the formatting from the properties palette...

but, in this case, the story editor is not a bad choice either.
