The partition icon

At the top of the pane is an icon representing the current partition. The icon indicates the type of partition:

  • — A non-looseleaf partition or a change pages partition containing its source content.

  • — A non-looseleaf partition or a change pages partition which links to source content held outside the repository.

  • — A full looseleaf partition which contains its source content.

  • — A full looseleaf partition which links to content held outside the repository. This can only be an unpublished initial release, since a published full looseleaf partition always contains content that is held inside the repository.

  • — A partition with read-only access. This usually means that the partition folder and the partition content have the read-only attribute set. TopLeaf requires read-write access to the partition and all partition content. You must remove the read-only permission to fully access the partition.

  • — A partition whose type or properties cannot be determined. This usually means that one or more components managed by TopLeaf and stored within the partition are missing or have been corrupted.

Right clicking on this icon raises a menu giving quick access to a number of partition related functions:

  • Edit — edit the partition source files (see “Partition content”).

  • Compose — typeset the current partition.

  • Print — calls a restricted version of the Print Partition dialog that always prints the whole partition (see “Print”).

  • Replace Partition Document — Replace the content of a partition with content copied from an external document file, or if the partition content is linked, associate a different document with the partition. You can also change a partition from a linked partition to a copy partition, or from a copy partition to a linked partition. See Commands » Replace Partition Document ... for more details.

  • Add Files to Partition — calls a dialog allowing additional source files to be copied and stored within the partition (see Commands » Add Files to Partition).

  • Edit Partition Document List — allows the list of the files stored within the partition to be updated (see Commands » Edit Partition Document List).

  • Indicators — calls the Partition Indicators dialog to examine/update the current values.

  • Label this Release — calls the Label Release dialog to assign an identifier string to the current release.

  • Properties — calls the Partition Properties dialog to examine/update the current values.
