Object information and Current draft windows

The top two windows on the left side of the Object Edit Interface display system information for the content currently being edited. This includes timestamps for when and by whom the content was created/modified, internal identification and information related to the built-in version management system. You can also access the Version history interface and the Version preview interface from these windows.

Object information and Current draft windows

Main edit window

You can modify the contents of the attributes of the selected object in the Main edit window. For example, if an article object is being edited, this window will allow you to change the title of the article, the summary and the body. The attributes will be displayed in the same order as they were set up when the related class (which defines the actual data structure) was created. At the bottom are the Send for publishing, Save draft and Discard draft buttons.

For multilingual sites, the Main edit window can be put in translator mode when the content exists in a language other than the one you are currently editing. You have to specify which language to edit before you enter edit mode. Within edit mode, you can toggle translator mode on and off and select a language on which to base the current translation from the list of existing translations. In translator mode, you will be shown the text of each attribute in the source language above the input fields. It is then easier to enter the translated text in your target language by referring to the original language text. You can change the source language or disable translator mode from the Translate from window.
