Move Block Elements

Being able to move content quickly is one of the benefits of structured authoring in Paligo. When you move a block element, you move the selected element and all of its "child" elements too. A good example is a procedure, where if you move the procedure element, you move the procedure element and all of its "child" step and para elements in one action.

To move most types of block elements, you can use:

Table rows are different as you can only move those by using keyboard shortcuts and the XML Tree (see Move Table Rows).

To learn about the parent-child relationship and how it affects moving, copying and deleting, see Understanding Content Structures.


It's worth taking the time to learn the keyboard shortcuts. When you master those, you will be able to move your block elements around very quickly.
