Configuring Tags as Text Style Elements
You can configure tags as bold, italic, and underline text styles in a document type's .dcf file. These tags are inserted by the bold, italic, and underline toolbar buttons on the Application toolbar. You must enable the Application toolbar in the .dcf file to access these toolbar buttons in Arbortext Editor.
To configure tags as text style elements:
1. Open Arbortext Architect.
2. Choose File > Open.
3. Locate the directory in which the document type whose .dcf file you want to modify is saved, and click Select.
4. Once the document type is loaded, choose Edit > DCF. If the document type has a .dcf file, it displays in the Arbortext ArchitectDCF Editor window. If there is no .dcf file associated with this document type, Arbortext Architect automatically creates one.
5. Locate the TextStyles element in the DCF Editor. If the file doesn't include a TextStyles element, add one.
Open the Document Type Viewer (Tools > Document Type Viewer) to view the element hierarchy for the .dcf file. This will help you determine the valid location for the TextStyles element.
6. Place your cursor next to the TextStyles element, choose Insert > Markup, and then choose Bold, Italic, or Underline, depending on the text style you want to configure.
The SmallCaps, Subscript, and Superscript text styles are not supported in this release.
7. Click next to the element you inserted (Bold, Italic, or Underline) to open the Modify Attributes dialog box.
You must have the Force Required Attributes EntryEdit preference selected for this dialog box to open automatically.
8. In the element field, select the element that you want to configure as the text style you selected.
9. In the attribute field, specify the attribute that will make the element into the specified text style. This is an optional setting.
10. In the attributeValue field, specify the attribute value that will make the element into a the specified text style. This is an optional setting.
11. Click OK.
12. Choose File > Save to save the changes you have made to the .dcf file.
13. Once you have configured the settings in the .dcf file, you must configure a stylesheet to apply the appropriate formatting for the tags you specified.
