Displays the current state of the builder call list. Show Elements in Application Tree
For the selected builder call, highlights the location of the associated elements in the Application Tree so that you can easily locate them. Convert
Changes a builder call from one type of builder to another type of builder. Multiple choices can appear.
Names of builders appear as separate choices if the system can readily convert to that type of builder or the builders were classified as likely targets for the conversion.Convert to
This menu choice is useful to convert a builder to a similar type of builder that has nearly equivalent inputs. For example, to convert a Button builder to a Link builder, or a Page builder to an Imported Page builder.
Opens the Builder Picker window, in which you can select a builder.
In general, builder conversions should involve builders in the same category. For example, between converting from one type of builder to another within the Pages category or within the Page Elements category. Do not attempt to convert builders that are radically different in nature or design.
Inputs of the original builder are preserved and, where appropriate, intelligently applied to the new builder. For example, the Button Label
input value is applied to the Link Text
input. All inputs of the original builder are added to the new builder call editor.
