That's what I thought too, but it doesn't work. As you can see above I have the layout set to editbar and when I drag the component on, I do see the edit bar I'm looking for. I've tried all 3 layout options with no luck too. The problem is if the page reloads it is gone. I can't get it to persist like the colctrl or form components do. any other ideas?
Simply setting cq:layout to editbar should work.
Would suggest trying it on a Geometrixx component. Set it on /apps/geometrixx/components/title/cq:editConfig and look at http://localhost:4502/content/geometrixx/en.html
Frustrating but that worked, thank you.
<rant>When I changed title, it worked. Copied title into my project, renamed it, still worked. Copied all of the code over from old component, still worked. And when I compare properties between old and new, they are same. I even tried deleting my _cq_editConfig, and replacing in whole from the geometrix title component - still didn't work. I guess things just work better when you start with sample component, instead of fresh.
I still wish I knew the reason, but at least I was on the right track. Thank you again!
