Togglers - Change text

Postby GeorgeBell on Thu Apr 06, 2017 10:06 am

The current default text for Togglers is "Click me!

I've hunted Help high and low, but cannot find where one can change the default, which I would like to be "More...".

Can anyone advise please as I have a great number of these to implement.

I can't help with changing that default text but just thought I'd comment that I hadn't noticed it before. When I create a toggler I usually select existing text to become the hotspot, and that gets put into the default position.
Maybe you can type "More ..." in the topic first and then create the toggle - maybe set up a snippet?

(Caveat: I'm still bleary-eyed from my long trip home from MadWorld...)

Would the "Click me" text be hiding in the default language skin?

I wish I could have been at MadWorld, but a little too far from the UK.

I've hunted high and low for "Click me!" on the entire disk drive and failed to come up with anything.

I guess it's going to have to be one for Madcap direct.

Well - here is the [disappointing] answer from MadCap.

"There is not currently a way to change the default text for a toggler. I have submitted a feature request on your behalf to our Product Managers who work with our Research and Development team regarding future versions of our products."
