Edit a complex document, reorganize it

This lesson is probably the most important because it explains Storga's organize mode.

Create a complex block (a table)

In the previous lesson, we learned how to create simple blocks, for example a paragraph. To do this, as in the previous lesson, switch to edit mode, position the cursor, then click on the toolbox icon, here the table icon.
The menu which then appears above the screen allows you to choose the initial number of rows and columns of the new table.

Here is what a table with 2 rows and 2 columns can look like, in which we have filled in the box at the top left:

C1

 

 

If we now click on the 'C' to edit the content of the cell at the top left, the contextual menu that appears is:

What changes from the previous lesson is that the menu has two tabs.
The one on the left corresponds to the table, the one on the right to the paragraph inside the table.

By clicking on the table icon in the popup menu, you can therefore access the properties of the cell and of the table to which it belongs.
This allows you to add or remove rows or columns, as well as change the background color of the cell.
'Extend' allows you to extend the contents of a cell over its neighbors, on the right and down.
Also note that the 'Properties' button of the contextual menu of the table allows you to specify whether the borders of the cells should be displayed or not.

If now, we click again on the 'C' of the cell, and then, as in the previous lesson, we select the 'Title' icon to add a subtitle. The answer is: it depends on which tab is selected on the context menu.
If the paragraph tab is selected, the new block will be added under the paragraph block of the cell, in the same cell.

Organize mode

Now click on the 'Organize' icon to switch from edit mode to organize mode.

The display changes, and our table now looks like this:

Here is the meaning of the new graphic elements:

   •   

The small icon on the left simply reminds us that this is a 'Table' type block.

   •   

The box just to its right allows us to select this block.

   •   

Finally, the yellow bars are used to materialize the positions 'just before the table' and 'just after the table'.

Note that when we select blocks, we can select a whole series of them with a single gesture.

Delete a set of blocks

It's quite simple: select the blocks to be deleted, then click on the delete icon in organize mode, and finally confirm by clicking on 'yes' in the window that has appeared above the screen.

Move or copy blocks

Select the blocks to move, then click on the yellow bar corresponding to where you want to move them.

Move

No comment.

To copy

Same.

Shared copy

A shared copy means that each block will be in two places.

The detailed organize sub-mode

In organize mode, you can activate the detailed display by clicking on the detailed icon.
The detailed sub-mode is a toggle, so a second click brings you back to non-detailed organize mode.

Now let's see how our table is displayed in detailed arrange mode:

In addition to the graphic elements corresponding to the table, there is this same series of graphic elements for each cell.
In organize detail mode, we will therefore be able to select, then delete, move or copy not only the table as a whole, but also the cells individually.

Important: when you are faced with a complex Storga page, to which you want to make changes, or when the changes you want to make do not produce the expected result, do not click in all directions as you do with software.

Move blocks between pages

For this, you will use two tabs. In the first tab, in 'organize' mode, select the blocks, then in the second, also in 'organize' mode, click on the yellow bar corresponding to where you want to move or copy them.

Note: The display of the original page is not updated automatically.

Use the elements made available in the Storga documentation

Storga's documentation system makes it possible to provide elements that you just have to copy and paste on your site.

   

C1

 

 

Practical work

   •   

Retrieve the following content from the documentation, then move the title located inside the top left cell of the table above the table.

   

T1

C1

C2

C3

C4

   •   

Change the background color of cell C2.

   •   

In this same table, cell C3 is a paragraph with space before and after.

   •   

Add a column to the table.

   •   

Create a subpage, then move the example table you just incorporated into your experiment site into it.
