Edit Mode Macro

The Edit Mode Macro allows you to choose a single or multiple options from a predefined 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.

In a page property report macro it is also possible to filter 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.

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