Adding a step to a Gloop template

There are multiple ways you could add a tag step or invoke template step to a Gloop template. You can use the toolbar, context menu, keyboard shortcut, content-assist, or drag and drop a file.

To add a tag step using the toolbar, click the plus-shaped green button. A menu of available steps will appear. From this menu, click Tag. Your newly added step should now be displayed in the step tree.

You can also add a tag using the keyboard shortcut , but you must do this while focused on the step tree.

Another way to add a tag or invoke template step is through content-assist. This method lets you conveniently add steps using only your keyboard. To add a step through content-assist:

  1. Press the key from the step editor to trigger content-assist.
  2. Search for the name of the tag step or Gloop template you would like to insert.
  3. Select a proposal using the or keys.
  4. Finalize your selection by pressing .

If the tag you chose has configurable attributes, you will be asked to select which attributes to set. If pre-defined values exist for an attribute, content-assist will list them as proposals so you can easily use these values. And to further help you write your web page; tags, attributes, and values also have descriptions visible in the content-assist pop-up.
