Working with Tiles

The components tab of the document editor provides an additional display mode: Tiles. This display mode combines the components tree and the component details view. It is useful to edit the details of multiple components in a comfortable way.

This is a paid Sophora add-on. For details, please refer to our website.

Tiles Display Mode

In order to edit sequence, titles and captions of images within a slideshow, users can switch to Tiles display mode and see each component's details in their surrounding context (the neighboring images).

  1. Open a document containing images.
  2. Switch to the document's components view.
  3. Choose the icon Tiles, listed in the editor toolbar.

Group of Tiles

Each top-level group is displayed as an expandable item containing the details of each component as a tile. So users must no longer select the components explicitly to see the details in the component details view.

Editing Tiles is supported by tab navigation across each input field and across the tiles of a tile group. The context menu contains the actions already known from the component structure like open, publish, set offline and so on. The underlying document of a tile can also be opened by double clicking the tiles' top area.

You can edit either groups or single components.
