Source Editor Overview

The Source Editor is a tool used to view DITA topics and maps in their source language. The Source Editor enables advanced DITA authors to edit with more precision. To help you navigate the code, the Source Editor colors syntax and your cursor position with a gray line in the scroll bar. While some content may have a preview, knowledge of the code is recommended.

Note: Only users with authoring permissions can edit using the Source Editor. Users without this permission can view the code only.

If multiple users collaborate on a resource, Heretto CCMS places a collaboration lock on the topic and the XML code is not editable.
