Editing XPaths Manually

Content Grabber will usually create an optimal selection XPath, but sometimes you may find it necessary to fine-tune the XPath manually. It can be difficult, however, to create an XPath from scratch. If you want to manually edit an XPath, we recommend that you first let Content Grabber generate the XPath and then edit it.


As we show in the figures below, you can use either the status bar XPath editor or the Selection ribbon menu to manually edit an XPath. Note that the Selection ribbon menu is only available if you are using the Expert user interface layout.
