Edit block

When an element is selected in its floating edit bar, access is allowed for editing several element properties.

The sections of an editing block are:
Sample edit blockabcdefgh
where:
#AreaDescription
aElement typeType of element. If disabled, there will be a strike through it
bAttributesCurrent values of element attributes along with ability to select new values
cActionsActions available for the element, depending upon the type of element

eMulti-deleteDelete multiple checked child elements
fChild elementsList of child elements along with their own floating edit bars
gEdit barDocked floating edit bar
hInsertJumps to the possible sibling elements to create after the current one

Some complex elements with structures defined by attributes, like tables or lists, can have that attribute value combination saved as a default on a per user basis. With such elements, if there is an As default button in the attributes area, clicking it will save the current combination for using when adding a new element of that type. If an element is using the default, Default will be shown instead of the button.

The possible actions, depending upon the element and in order of appearance, are:
