Right-click in the area between the opening and closing tags; this displays a context menu that enables you to:

  • perform simple text editing (cut, copy and paste)
  • select from a list of defined project constants to insert at the cursor position; if no project constants have been defined, the menu option is not available
  • select from a context-sensitive list of fields to add to this component section of the RTF Documentation; any additional information entered between the tags is also included in the generated RTF Documentation
