  • [DEV-8045] In previous versions of CCMS Desktop, actions such as Insert variable from map, Insert external link from map, and Insert Taxonomy were available via the global Oxygen toolbar.

This submenu also includes View Dependencies, Lock, Release, and Replace with Server Revision when in Author mode.

  • [DEV-8490] Keydef entries were sometimes missing from DRM containerparts. This issue only occurred if the user had previously edited the containerpart in the editor which synched it to their workspace. When the user performed a subsequent DRM action that added a key to the containerpart, the update was made to TEXTML correctly but it was not added to the local copy in the workspace. When the user did another update to the same containerpart, the copy from the workspace was used which was missing the key. This issue has been fixed.
