Dialog windows are small pop-up windows that are displayed when you use some of the editor's functions like find and replace or insert image. The windows display various configuration options linked with a particular function and give you access to some more advanced settings.

An exemplary Find and Replace dialog window is presented below: Dialog window

When a dialog window is open, the main editor window is blocked.

All dialog windows contain the OK button that lets you confirm the setting and return to the main editor window as well as the Cancel button that closes the pop-up window without introducing any changes to the document.

Another way to close the dialog window and return to the editing area is to use the Close button located in the top right-hand-side corner of the window or press the Esc key of your keyboard.

Depending on the options available for a particular feature the dialog window may contain different elements. Some windows, like the Find and Replace pop-up presented above, may also contain tabs with additional configuration options. To navigate between the tabs simply click their labels.
