I have a custom application and have created some .tpl tag templates files in my custom/tagtemplates folder.
In the editor when I use Tools -> Tag Templates... to insert my newly added templates I can insert them into my document and all is well. However, when I go and insert the relevant element directly in my document the template is not inserted - just the element as normal.
Does anyone know if I am missing something. Is there some additional configuration I need to do to make this work?
Tag templates are inserted only when an author specifically selects them from within the Tag Template dialogs.
In order to automatically insert more than just an element, you will need to use an insert_tag or insert_tag_after callback function to customize Arbortext Editor's behavior.
Do you know about the Adepters mailing list? Lots and lots of Arbortext users, admins, and developers hang out 24/7/365. Information on joining that list (as well as pointers to lots of other Arbortext resources) can be found here:
