This toolbar selection is a collection of content tools which do not conveniently align with other selections.

 

Available options

 
Blockquote

A block quote is any quote that meets or exceeds 4 lines of text for prose and 3 lines for poetry. By using a block quote, you are stating there is something special about the material you’re citing. This also means you’re setting the stage to really get into the specifics of the quotation, showing how it supports your argument or larger point.

 

Logic will get you from A to Z; imagination will get you everywhere.

 

Citation

A citation is a reference to the source of information. If used with a block quote it notes the source of the quotation. Citations may be linked or unlinked.

 

Logic will get you from A to Z; imagination will get you everywhere.

Albert Einstein

 

Excerpt

An excerpt in WordPress is a synopsis of content typically followed with a read more link. It is also used by the search function. By default the excerpt is generated by WordPress and is the first fifty five words (ish). Although better than nothing, the more appropriate solution is to craft an excerpt which invites the reader to continue. Excerpts should be placed at the beginning of content and Xidipity expands the WordPress default to eighty words (~240 characters) which matches the length of a Twitter tweet.

 

The following is a blog post example.

 

It was really quite bizarre. One day my body began to change in ways which challenged by ability to describe. The question became; who was I going to tell, and what was I going to do?

 

Add/Delete Line

In the circumstances when an image or a template is added to a new document, the cursor becomes locked and will not move from the inserted content. This selection will fix the issue by placing a blank line above or below as required. The reverse scenario can also be fixed when an unwanted blank line at the beginning or end of the document can not be deleted.

 

Containers

Containers are a very powerful design tool as they provide a way to separate the content inside from the surrounding content and are very versatile as they support most html elements including images, lists, tables or Xidipity templates. Xidipity provides four types of containers. The full width containers come with and without a frame. The frame container (see below) has a border and tinted background, the standard full width container does not. The float left and right container floats the container left or right so that the outer content will flow around it. By default the full width containers are sized to 100% of the available width and the float  to 50% of the available width. Although these boundaries can be changed by dragging the border handles, this makes the container rigid which may cause problems with responsiveness. The better solution is edit the style properties and make the adjustments using a percentage.

Code

This option is typically used to highlight a snippet of computer code placed within a sentence. The presentation uses a monospaced font and the text is tinted.

 

For example, the framework class ” aln:txt-ct ” may be used to center text.

 

Insert/delete redline

Redlining is the process of changing text by showing content to be added and content to be removed. The marked up document is then reviewed by other individuals in order to come to agreement on the final product.

 

The proposed addition is underlined and presented in blue.

 

The proposed deletion is struck through and presented in red.

 

Acronym

An acronym is an abbreviation for two or more words when grouped together have a unique meaning. Acronyms are capitalized and are presented in a heavier font weight.

 

For example, did you know nasa is also known as the National Aeronautics and Space Administration?

 

Chr Substitution

Character substitution evaluates the highlighted character or characters and returns a unicode replacement as indicated by the table below. The list is not exhaustive and is limited to the more popular unicode characters. A more complete list can be found at this GitHub page and any of the symbols on the GitHub page can be added using the add template tool. The syntax is &# plus the last four digits of the the “alt-code” completed with a semicolon.

 

For example:

The “alt-code” for the Greek letter delta (Δ) is “alt-0916″. This would be added as ” Δ “.

 

It is important to remember unicode characters may display differently across environments (ie. Apple, Windows, and Google).
