What is the EDM Edit Mode Macro?

The Edit Mode Macro allows you to choose a single or multiple option/s from a predefined dropdown text set and displays them. See Space & Global Configuration for more information on how to define text sets.

The major difference to the other macros is, that you can only change the values when you are in the edit mode. The selected options will get displayed as normal text on the page.

It is also possible to filter in a page property report macro for these edit mode macros. See Filtering with the Page Property Report Macro for further information.

Even though only the selected options will be displayed as normal text on the page, they will still be indexed in the background as normal EDM Text Fields.

This will allow you to filter for them for example in the page property report like for any other dropdowns. 

Macro Parameters

These Parameters can be set differently for each Edit Mode Macro.


Input Field Type


Default Value

Choose a set


Here you can choose one of the predefined dropdown text sets that you have defined in the space or global configurations.


Current Options


After choosing your predefined text set, you will be able to select the option/s you want to be shown on the page. If left blank, then no option is selected and there will be no text displayed from the macro.




If checked, the dropdown will be displayed as a multi-dropdown, which allows you to select multiple options at the same time.
