Basic Typing and Editing

Typing simple text works much the same as in other text editing apps. You can insert special characters using the character palette (EditSpecial Characters…).

TypeMetal condenses runs of whitespace into HTML-appropriate single spaces, as explained under Whitespace Handling. You can insert additional spaces, if desired, by using non-breaking spaces.

All operations in TypeMetal are Undo-able and Redo-able. As in all other apps, type Command+Z (or choose EditUndo) to undo an edit, and type Command+Shift+Z (or choose EditRedo) if you change your mind and want to redo the edit.

Once you’re comfortable entering text, you’ll want to know how to add HTML elements.
