Edit a topic
The Edit procedure locks and opens a topic at the same time.
Use Edit to save yourself a step when you want to work on a topic that is not locked.
Topics can be opened for editing from almost any view in the DITA Perspective, as long as they are in a state that allows editing. You cannot, for example, edit a topic that is in the review state (or its equivalent in your workflow).
You can have more than one topic open in the XML editor at a time. You can switch from one topic to another by clicking the tab with the topic title.
This function is available from all DITA CMS views.
