Good day all! Nick here.
I don’t know if anyone here knows Paligo, or how well, but I’m struggling with an issue that wouldn’t be an issue if I were fortunate enough to be able to use MS Word.
If I want to centre a Figure image on a page in Paligo, I click the image to highlight the Imagedata element, then add the align attribute and choose the ‘Center’ option.
This works for the image only. The figure title has no align-attribute option.
So, my question is: how do I get the figure title to centre underneath the image?
Call me pig-headed if you will, but I have zero interest in fooling with the XML code directly.
Why? You ask. Because I’m a technical writer, not a software developer. Think about it. If I’d wanted to learn how to code, I could have boxed far more clever and learned to program in Java.
In my opinion, *.XML-based editors are more trouble than they’re worth. I’ve had to say goodbye to ease of use, quick reference between sections of a large document, and because I work in a third-world country with sub-standard internet connectivity, I can forget about working if there are bandwidth issues.
I’m sitting here writing this on a Sunday afternoon, with no idea of how to fix something that would not be an issue in Word. This manual’s taken three weeks to get to first-draft stage. If I’d been allowed to write it in Word, I could have gotten to a release version in two.
If you’ve read this far, thank you for listening. It’s been a long time coming.
