Editing a transformation

While editing a transformation in a ZIETrans Web project, you can use the ZIETrans Components drawer in the Palette view of the Page Designer to drag new components onto the page. You can use the Properties view to modify the settings for the current components. For more information about editing transformations in ZIETrans Web projects, see Editing transformations for Web projects in the ZIETrans User's and Administrator's Guide.

For ZIETrans Web projects, in addition to using the Palette view to edit your transformation, you can use icons on the main toolbar and items from the ZIETrans Tools menu on the menu bar. The following table lists the icons available on the main toolbar.
