How to Use In-Context Editing (ICE) | Steps to edit in ICE.
In-context editing (ICE) is designed to bridge the gap between entering content and previewing the results. Authors can enter content directly into the layout and see the results of their work immediately.
You can access ICE through the Page View tab.
ICE makes it possible to edit this rendered content directly, as long as the user has appropriate permissions. Arrow icons point to content that can be edited, and editable fields are highlighted when a user hovers over them with the cursor.
To access in-context editing:
When you click a text element in ICE mode, a text field opens where you can type, delete, or copy and paste text. The size of the field adjusts to show all the content.
Clicking away from the field onto the background or pressing Esc submits changes to the layout, closes the text field, and provides an immediate preview of the change. You can then click Save to confirm changes and submit them to the edit form.
When using ICE, the XHTML element differs from regular text elements in the same way it does in the edit form. When you click text contained in the XHTML element—usually the body text of the page—a version of the XHTML editor opens. The ICE version of the XHMTL editor displays the same toolbar buttons that the XHTML editor has on the edit form.
Click the magnifying glass icon to expand or contract the editor.
