Good catch on the auto-naming thing... so what's the logic to fix it? How will I know whether to set the name? Because it's a child of the root xml node?

Subject: [Xerte-dev] bug in editor and some updates

Hi folks,

During testing and fixing some issues I discovered that there is a bug in the editor that is a bit of a show stopper.

The automated capture of the xwd name field to copy the value to the page icon's name and title field in the desktop editor works well. Unfortunately a little too well. It is also capturing a change of name value for child elements of the page. For example if you create a dragDropLabel page and then add a hotspot. When you change the name of the hotspot this change will be copied to the page icon's title and name fields.

With respect to Julian's recent list of things that need fixing.

Sldieshow - display of "Slide 1 of 8" message is now converted to Tom's preferred format.
Drag and Drop labelling - "Try again" is now an xwd field with a language attribute.

Model Answer - The copy and paste info optional property displays if it is selected, to tell the user that their answer has been placed on the clipboard. It is optional because the author may be using the "Model Answer Results" page which aggregates the answers of all model answer pages into one clipboard posting.

Scenario Connector - This has already been modified to change the score debug message and it now automatically creates the Score Configuration, List of scenario actions and list of props in scenario elements.

I have not changed the Tabbed Navigator Connector. I think most people will understand how setting an x, y, width and height value can be used to give them more control over the positioning of the graphics. To change how this page works would take a lot of re-writing.

Kind regards
