Taco HTML Edit v2.6.0 Changes:
  • Important Note: In this version, the way that file types are handled by Taco HTML Edit has changed. Other than image files, files with extensions that are not defined in the "File Types" section of Taco HTML Edit's Preferences will open in an external application. Due to this change, the File Types Preferences will be reset to the default values the first time you open Taco HTML Edit 2.6.
  • Component Library: The Image Map wizard has been revamped and is now, in addition to the new Inset Drop Shadow component, part of the Component Library.

Also, file drag-and-drop is now supported for selecting files for various components.
  • Code Clips: Code Clips can now be organized into groups, and can include a Selection Placeholder. A Completion Name can be specified for a clip to allow the clip to be accessed through Taco HTML Edit's Code Completion interface.
