Why does menucascade element start on a new line when authoring? Can it be changed to be inline?

Using FM2020, structured with DITA.

When a <menucascade> element is inserted, it appears on its own separate line in the authoring view, whereas a simple <uicontrol> element appears inline:

I would prefer it if the <menucascde> appeared inline, in a similar manner to the <uicontrol>

 

Note: when the PDF is generated, the menucascude correctly appears inline (i.e. this issue is restricted to the editing/authoring within Framemaker).

Big thanks to @frameexpert. The problem was a difference in the EDD files for authoring and PDF rendering. The following TextFormatRules was missing from the EDD file for authoring:

You would have to modify the EDD (Element Definition Document) that is associated with the DITA template that you are using. Then you would import the modified Element Definitions into the appropriate template. I am not able to provide detailed instructions here on how to do it, but I could show you via a web meeting this week. Please private message me. Thank you.
