Can't find the Span HTML tag in Topstyle4?

Post by __jb » Fri Mar 19, 2010 2:04 am

I use the Span tag quite a lot, but can't seem to find it in Topstyle4.

<span style="color: Fuchsia;">New</span>

I use it to change the color of text and other stuff. I used to used Multiedit to write HTML. It was very easy to add Span tags like this using Topstyle Lite.

I used to use Topstyle for CSS pages, but want to start using it for HTML, too. I just can't find the Span tag.

Thanks,

You can use the Clip Library for this.

Perfect, thank you!

So it seems that the HTML toolbar buttons at the top must use the same clip library format. Is there a way I can add my HTML macros in as additional HTML toolbar items?

I figure this must be your plan as there wasn't initially an HTML folder under the Clip Library section.

HTML toolbar items are somewhat more complex than Clip Library items because they (optionally) contain a user interface, and scripting. If you need a simple snippet (not requiring an input dialog and/or scripting), then add a new item to the Clip Library. If you need a more complex snippet, then add a new item to the HTML toolbar.
