Hello Julian:


Yes, thanks, that's helpful.


>From my understanding, I think if there was a way to open the templates from
totally outside the desktop version that would be more intuitive, because I
think that's really launching you into a totally different application and
shutting down the desktop version. 


The wizards however, I think are ideal where they are. A couple more
questions re wizards if you don't mind -


-          When I'm done with the wizard, and when its plugged its code into
the desktop flowline.is there a way to edit that page using the wizard
interface after that? Or is it a one time thing - you build your wizard once
and it gets plugged into the flowline..any changes require building it from
scratch again?  I tried opening the folder with the related files to edit
the wizard but that didn't work.

-          Once built, are the sub-folders that house the wizard files
needed any longer (for packing purposes or ?) or can they be deleted?

-          I believe I read somewhere that wizard code can't be saved as a
model and imported into a toolkits piece. Is that correct? My understanding
is I can package any desktop flowline icons into a model and then import
that into online toolkits via the 'import xerte' (I think that's what its
called) menu selection.but not anything that contains wizard pages
identified with the small circle in the flowline. Am I correct on that?

Think like AW's KOs.


Some are application level - for example the page templates template, which
is the same thing as the Xerte Online Toolkit in Toolkit (maybe we should
change Page templates to Xerte Online Toolkit in standalone xerte). The
entire application is constructed using the wizard. The end user does not
interact with the flow line at all.


Some are page level. You can mix them up with your own custom code, thanks
to Jonathan's work.


In all cases the wizard is used to edit the xml that the template uses.


The template's logic is implemented in a model. Think like AWs models, a
chunk of flow line that does a particular thing. In this case they are
data-driven by the xml edited in the wizard.


I guess a temple comprises a wizard, some data and a model.
