Working With Component Groups in Tiles Mode

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.
