Using Inline Editing

Step 2: Making the text editable

Using Inline Editing

It is strongly recommended that inline editing is used when a template is more than two pages long, a template has large amounts of editable text or when there are numerous styles used. This method will enable the end user to edit the text in the body of the template and enable you to give them the ability to choose styles, colours, font size etc. 

Step A: Unlock the editable fields

  1. Open the Frame Tab > Frame Constraints  
  2. Set all to Lock for end usersif this has been done already in the 'Document Constraintstab you will see it is already set.

  3. Set Lock Content to No - This will enable the end user to click into the frame and edit the content therein

Resolve the Inline Editing bug

There is currently a bug in Inline editing that is preventing the colour of the text to change correctly when the user switches from on style to another.

In order to bypass the bug please select all editable text and apply a character style and then remove this. 

Step B: Define the editing rules

  1. In the Frame Content Constraints tab Set All to ‘Limited selection for end-user


  2. Check the options you’d like to be available for the user - colours, font selection, font size, and styles.
    Users will have access to the options you select here.

Please note:

For Paragraph and Character styles you must select the options you would like the user to have access to. Not clicking any will provide the user with all options.

The end user will now be able to edit the template by clicking into the frame.

The options which were made available in the previous step will be visible in the tool bar for the end user to choose from.
