Full Edit mode allows you to use Full Edit mode or Quick Edit mode
when working with scripts. Both Full Edit and Quick Edit are enabled on
the Script Editor toolbar. When changing from Monitor or Browse mode to
Full Edit mode, the Script Editor workspace background goes from gray to
Your Full Edit mode editing capabilities are determined by
whether or not you are assigned to a feature control set:
If you are a full-edit user and are not assigned to a feature
control set, you can add, edit, or delete any script or node.
If you are a full-edit user and are assigned to a feature
control set, you can add, edit, or delete any script. You only
have Full Edit permissions for those scripts that do not contain
nodes that are marked as unavailable to you in a feature set.
Full Edit gives you restricted editing capabilities if you are
assigned a feature control set. You can still edit any script, however,
your ability to edit specific script nodes is determined by which nodes
are selected in the Node Control table (located on the Script Editor
Feature Control dialog) of the assigned feature control set. This allows
you to edit the structure of a script or to create, edit, and delete
scripts containing the selected nodes.
If a script is opened that contains a disabled node, you can browse or
monitor the script but you cannot put the script into edit mode. If you
attempt to put this script into edit mode a message indicating you are
not authorized to enter edit mode appears. However, you can still
Quick Edit the script, just not the node.
You might want to use Quick Edit mode so as not to accidentally change
the structure of a script.
