Content Rules: Text Input Restrictions

Created on 28th November 2016 at 18:02 by Jamie O'Connell



The 'Text > Input' portion of a Content Rule defines input options and limitations for a user.

Text Input options

Text Input options

The options available under 'Text > Input' are:

  • Paragraph character: Permit or prevent paragraph characters from being typed.
  • Newline character: Permit or prevent newline characters from being typed.
  • Number of characters: Set a limit on the number of characters that may be entered.
  • Character filter: Set a specific range of characters that may be entered.

NOTE:
None of these input limitations apply to text entered via an XML export/import workflow. These control characters entered via the one2edit™ UI only.

'Paragraph character'

'Paragraph character'

By default, users are not permitted to type the paragraph character. If they try, a newline character (a.k.a. a soft return or line break) will be entered instead.

If your users should be permitted to add new paragraphs to your document, then you will need to explicitly allow that using this content rule.

You may also permit or prevent the insertion of text directly after a paragraph character in a segment (if the paragraph character is the last character in the segment).

NOTE:
Any text inserted after a paragraph character will appear at the start of the following paragraph, even if the user may not edit text in the following paragraph.

'Newline Character'

'Newline Character'

By default, users may insert newline characters (a.k.a. line breaks or soft returns).

You may prevent users from inserting such characters if you wish (if, for example, translators may not make such design decisions about line breaks in headlines, etc.).

'Number of characters'

'Number of characters'

By default, users may insert as many characters as they require into any text field.

If you wish to limit the number of characters that a user can insert, you can define it here by un-checking 'Allow All' and entering a value in the 'Limit' field.

NOTE:
This rule may be more useful when applied to specific text segments, rather than to all segments within a Content Group.

NOTE:
A greater number of characters than the limit may end up in a segment via an XML export/import workflow. In such a case, the reviewer may not be able to edit the text 'as is', and must reduce it to adhere to this rule.

'Character filter'

'Character filter'

By default, there is no restriction on the characters that a user may enter (other than the paragraph character – see above).

If you wish to limit the characters which may be typed by a user into the document, you can define it here by un-checking 'Allow All' and choosing an option from the drop-down menu.

  • Numbers: restrict the editor to only adding digits to the text.
  • A-Z: restrict the editor to only adding Latin letters to the text (accented characters are not permitted).
  • All except...: permit the editor to add any characters except those typed into the 'Value' field.
  • Nothing but...: prevent the editor from adding any characters except those typed into the 'Value' field.

NOTE:
These rules may be more useful when applied to specific text segments, rather than to all segments within a Content Group.

NOTE:
'Forbidden' characters may end up in a segment via an XML export/import workflow.
