Editing Object Actions


There are three versions of this tool available:

  • Actions - Edit Object Actions (Book) - access from the Book palette


You can also include any of these versions on a custom palette or custom menu.


The Actions - Edit Object Actions tool will list all objects on the current page or background that have actions (if Page or Background is selected), or all shared actions in the book (if Book is selected). For the Page/Background options, you can select an object with actions from the list on the left to display all its events that have actions on the right. You can choose any object on the left and any event on the right, then click "Edit Actions" to open the Actions Editor with that object and event displayed.


Note: If, when this editor is open, you select an object on your page or background that has actions, the cursor will momentarily turn into the one shown and the selection becomes the default in this editor.



Note: you can collapse this dialog by clicking on the collapse graphic (Generate/collapseBtn.gif) at the top of the screen and then expand it again by clicking the expand graphic (Generate/expandBtn.gif).
