Element menu enhancements

A lot of new commands have been added in the Element menu to help you work more efficiently and

easily with structured elements. In addition, a shortcut key is assigned to all of these commands to

help you perform tasks quickly. A list of commands in the Element menu along with their shortcut

keys is given in the following table: ...

Either this doesn't work the way I want it to. Or I don't work the way Adobe wants me to.

I place the cursor at an insertion point in the middle of an element (in this example before est😞

I select the command Element > Ausblendung von Element und Gleichrangigen umschalten (in the english version it is called Toggle Element Collapse All Siblings). This is what happens:

In one of Matt's books, the command is explained: Select element containing the insertion point. That's what I wanted to do and what FM has done. So, Matt is right, Adobe is wrong.

The shortcuts are irritating, too: Adobe FM help: Esc E X (works), Matt's book: Esc h E (doesn't work). So, Adobe is right, Matt is wrong.

Anyone else having problems with the new element menu enhancements in FM 2017?

Thanks for the heads-up on Esc h E. I'll update or rewrite for the next version
