Articles provide an easy way to create relationships among page items. These relationships can be used to define the content to be exported to EPUB, HTML, or Accessible PDFs; and to define the order of the content. You can create articles from a combination of existing page items within a layout, including images, graphics, or text. Once an article has been created, page items can be added, removed, or reordered. Articles can be created manually by dragging one or more page items to an article in the Articles panel.
You can also add bulk content to an article. Adding selected content to selected article, or adding an entire document content to an article is supported.
The XML structure panel provides another mechanism to decide the order of the content to be exported to the ePub, HTML, and Accessible PDF exports workflows. The Articles panel is designed to be simpler, easier to use, and more accessible, for people without XML skills. However, the ability to use the XML structure panel has not been removed; it is now an option alongside the use of the Articles panel during the export process. See Structuring documents for XML.
If you’ve selected an article, choose Add Document Content to Selected Articles from the articles panel menu.
You can manage articles using the Articles panel. You can drag page elements into the Articles panel to add them to an article. Drag items in the Articles panel to change the order, or move them from one article to another.
The Articles panel pop-up menu also provides options to manage content.
You can create articles and select which articles to include while exporting to EPUB or HTML. By default, all articles are selected for export.
