A work-around for "hopping" Commonspot icons

Wednesday, Apr. 1, 2009

Commonspot users frequently encounter problems with access to element icons in pages that have content "below the fold" - content that is not visible when the page content is scrolled to the top of the window.  Clicking on an element icon can cause the page view to "hop" to the top of the page, and you then lose access to the element's menu options.

A work-around for this problem is to press the CTRL key (Windows) or Command key (Mac) when clicking the element icon.  That should prevent the view from resetting to the top of the page.

Credit for this useful tip goes to OMC student assistant Chris.
