Hiding Default Component Content

Component templates (see Component Template Management) may propagate placeholders with default content to derived components. When editing components, you can hide this default content. To do so:
  1. Select the management context from the context selection box, then select Content | Components.
    This opens the Components list view.
  2. Click the name of the component you intend to edit.
    This opens the Content tab of the detail view.
  3. In the placeholder section, click the icon next to the intended placeholder.
    This opens the settings dialog box.
  4. Select the Hide default content checkbox, and click Apply.
    The content as derived from the template will not longer be displayed.
    Tip: In components that are shared from a parent management context (see Content Asset Sharing), the option to hide default content is not enabled.
