Hi Yves...

Yes .. this is a known "limitation". The FM9 API does not expose methods 
for handling or dealing with actions in the new UI elements, and because 
DITA-FMx requires the replacement of the core DITA DLLs many of the 
features in the resource manager are non-functional or don't work as 
expected. I'm hoping that a future patch will add access to the UI features.

However, in general I find that the resource manager is of limited use 
for DITA authoring since you have limited access to the attributes and 
element structure and no ability to edit relationship tables.

When opening a map (using FMx or standard FM DITA) I'd immediately 
switch to the "Document View".
