Document Modules

The content of a document is contained in modules. There are four types of modules, document modules, blackboard modules, object modules and unit test modules. Document modules can be compared to a page or a chapter in a book.

Document Modules are created and managed using The Document Explorer. While only one document file can be opened in a single instance of the application, a document can have any number of modules open simultaneously.

At the top of each module, there is a button bar and a status bar below it. The status bar indicates the document that contains the current module (which may be the main document or one of its libraries), the module type, the current notation, and the current editing mode.

The button bar provides convenient access to commands like undo and redo, the cut, copy, and paste commands, text editing commands like bulleting and numbering and a drop-down to set the notation. Note that the notation shown in the status bar will show that actual notation if Automatic is selected in the drop-down.

Editing modes:

For a description of the edit modes in a document module, see Creating and Editing Content

Exporting a module:

For a details on exporting a module, see Exporting Content. You can also export expressions to any of the formats supported by the exporters loaded in the current document just by copying the expression and pasting into an application that expects text. See Exporting Expressions for more details.

Undo and redo will work on any edits you make in a blackboard module. There are separate undo and redo lists for each module.
