Deleting Elements

As Paligo uses block elements for structure, it is very quick and easy to delete unwanted content. You select the element and delete it, and the element and all of its "child" elements (the elements inside it) are also deleted. For example, if you have a procedure, you can:

  • Delete a step element to remove a single step from the procedure.

  • Delete the procedure element to delete the entire procedure, including its "child" step and para elements.

This is where structured content gives you much more control. With a single action, you can delete entire structures, or you can delete individual elements.

To delete an element:

  1. In the Editor, position the cursor inside the element that you want to delete. Take care when positioning the cursor and remember that when you delete the element, you will also delete the "child" elements.

  2. Select the element in the Element Structure Menu and then select Delete.


    Alternatively, you can use the keyboard shortcut AltShiftD on Windows and Option ⌥ Shift ⇧ ↑D on Mac.
