Any text can be assigned a glossary term and this is done manually by the author, in the same dialog as adding in-document and image connections/links.
In Word Processing View
To create a new glossary entry
To create a new glossary entry from scratch, the user selects text and does cmd-shift-g (the latter is listed in the CTRL click dialog with ‘Assign Glossary Term’ in order to have it’s own keyboard shortcut) and Author sends the selected text to Liquid | Flow with ^^ appended so that Liquid | Flow will instantly open the Glossary dialog.
To connect text to a previously created heading, image or glossary term
User selects text and cmd-shift-k to spawn this dialog: The dialog will show the last used tab when invoking next time it is used (these details are important):
In Liquid View
In the Liquid View the user will double click on the canvas to type in new text. The dialog below will then appear.
The dialog will pre-select the heading or glossary term which matches it most closely for quick ‘Connect’ or choose other.
This dialog also has URL as an option which will simply show a text entry area. If the user has a valid URL on the clipboard then this dialog should have that pre-filled.
If the user chooses to ‘Skip’ the text will still be viewable in Liquid View but as an annotation, not connected text.
