Application Editor and Quick Edit provide the opportunity to ‘customize’ what objects (job types) will be made visible in the ‘Palette’, by default. As seen below, the panel is displayed with all available object nodes in expanded form.

<Please see attached file for image>




By default, when a template is created it is placed underneath the applicable job type. As the amount of additional templates increase, the automatic node expansion is increased and can become confusing to the end user.



This customization is applicable to UWCC r11.3.5, r11.3.6, and r11.4



A simple modification can be made to a select few XHTML files, which will display all nodes collapsed by default as seen below.
