Reuse structures

Besides reusing single topics in publications, you can also reuse entire structures, such as subsections, chapters, etc. To reuse structures:

  1. Create a publication object, and name it something that refers to what you want to reuse.

    For instance, if you have a safety chapter that is reusable in many different context (such as product manuals for variants of a product), create a publication called "Safety chapter".

  2. Hold down the shift key, and drag and drop the topmost topic in that structure to another publication in the Structure View.

    Note

    Note that if you use a trackpad that has multi-finger gestures to drag and drop, you may still need to use a regular click-drag in this case. Multi-finger gesture drag is not always reliable for this command.

The target publication in the Structure View will show the reuse like this with a specific icon:
