Modifying template properties

When template authors create parameters in a template (see Template parameters), documents based on the template automatically inherit the parameters and their initial value settings. A template user can update editable tag attributes and other template parameters (such as optional region settings).

To modify an editable tag attribute:

  1. Open the template-based document.
  2. Select Modify > Template Properties.

    The Template Properties dialog box opens, showing a list of available properties. The dialog box shows optional regions and editable tag attributes.

  3. In the Name list, select the property.

    The bottom area of the dialog box updates to show the selected property’s label and its assigned value.

  4. In the field to the right of the property label, edit the value to modify the property in the document.
  5. Select the Allow Nested Templates to Control This checkbox, if you want to pass the editable property along to a documents based on the nested template.

To modify optional region template parameters:

  1. Open the template-based document.
  2. Select Modify > Template Properties.

    The Template Properties dialog box opens, showing a list of available properties. The dialog box shows optional regions and editable tag attributes.

  3. In the Name list, select a property.

    The dialog box updates to show the selected property’s label and its assigned value.

  4. Select the Show checkbox, to show the optional region in the document, or deselect the checkbox to hide it.
  5. Select the Allow Nested Templates to Control This checkbox, if you want to pass the editable property along to a documents based on the nested template.
