User manual v1.4.0, v1.5.0

Cet outil est un éditeur en ligne de charte graphique. Il est possible de modifier directement l'ensemble des fichiers de vos chartes graphiques : images,  Javascript, CSS, XSL, etc...

It behaves like theResource Explorer. You can :

  • Create, rename or delete folders
  • Create, rename, delete or download files.

Tool opening

Cliquez sur le bouton Editeur de charte graphique de l'onglet Développeur pour ouvrir l'outil.

In the dialog box that opens, select the graphic charter to be opened for modification.

The list of available charters depends on the rights assigned to you.

Click on "Ok".

The different opening modes

When opening the tool, several cases may arise:

  • First use of the tool

If the chart has never been edited using the chart editor, there is no saved working version of the chart.

A working version is created from a copy of the production chart (skins directory), and the tool is opened directly.

  • The charter has already been modified and a working version has been saved.

In this case, you have the choice of starting from this last working version or from the charter in production.

Depending on your choice, a new working version is created from a copy of the saved working version or from a copy of the production chart.

La charte graphique sélectionnée sera alors copiée dans son intégralité dans un espace de travail dédié

  • The last time you used the workshop, you left the tool without saving your work.

In this case, you are offered the choice of either resuming your unsaved changes, or abandoning your changes and working from the last backup or production charter.

  • The charter is being used by another user

Two people can't use the tool at the same time, as this will overwrite each other's modifications.

If the graphic charter appears to be locked by another user, you are warned by a pop-up window.
You have the option of recovering write access to the chart and opening the tool anyway.


The charter can be locked by another user if the latter has left the tool without saving during its last use. Refer to the date of the last modification to judge whether this user is actually using the tool.

If you choose to recover write rights, while the other user is using the tool at the same time, all his modification attempts will now be refused:

The tool opens in the left-hand side area and displays your chart's resources in tree form.

File editing

Pour éditer un fichier, sélectionnez-le dans l'arbre des ressources et cliquez sur le bouton Ouvrir ou double-cliquez dessus.
Le fichier s'ouvre alors dans la zone centrale.

A tout moment vous pouvez enregistrer et annuler vos modifications à l'aide des boutons "Sauver" et "Annuler les modifications"

Be careful when using the action Go to production. The changes will take effect directly on all sites using the modified charter. Make sure you have taken the time to check all the changes you have made using the Preview function.

If you exit the charter editor, your changes will not be lost. You will be able to come back to the currently modified charter in the future.
