Edit a link
Edit a basic link or navigation link
1. Press and hold Ctrl and click to place the cursor in the text of the link.
2. Edit the text as needed. As you add or remove characters, CuteSITE Builder adjusts the dashed underline.
Edit a field link
To add text to the existing text, press and hold Ctrl and single-click the field link. The field link turns light gray. The existing text remains as you type new text.
To overwrite existing text, press and hold Ctrl while highlighting the text using the mouse. The field link turns dark gray. As you begin to type new text, the existing text disappears.
The changes to the field ripple through the entire file, updating the linked page’s Properties dialog box and all other field links and inserted fields that use the information.
n The fields in a page’s Page Properties dialog box are updated when you change the information in the properties box, change the information in a link, or change the title in the page area. CuteSITE Builder then automatically updates all links that use this information. For examples of what inserted fields and field links can look like while being edited or formatted, see the Fields Overview.
n If you need to make sure that an edited link is still a link, move the mouse pointer over the link. The mouse pointer changes to the shape whenever it’s over a link.
n You can also change a field link to an inserted field.
n If you delete all the text in a field link, CuteSITE Builder inserts placeholder text; for example, —Type Title Here —. If you edit this placeholder text, the changes you make will also appear in the page’s Properties dialog box, as well as in any other field links or inserted fields on other pages that use the field information.
n Most CuteSITE Builder page layouts include navigation links and a title field link by default. Navigation links and title fields are considered static text in CuteSITE Builder page layouts, which means you must follow a special step before you edit or delete them: right-click on the text and choose Unlock Static Text. A lock cursor indicates the presence of static text.
n To view or adjust the properties of any existing link, right-click on the link and choose Properties > Link .
n To change the keystrokes you use to edit or follow links, choose Tools > Options and select a setting under Editing preferences. You can follow links by clicking the link (the default setting) or by pressing and holding Ctrl and clicking the link.
If you choose to follow links by clicking the link, you need to press and hold Ctrl to edit the link text. If you choose to follow links by pressing and holding Ctrl and clicking the link, you can edit the link by simply clicking anywhere in the text of the link.
