By taking the granularity of authoring memory to the paragraph level, potential reuse of content is dramatically increased. The primary goal, and requirement of Author-it Xtend, is to make reuse of content automatic and systematic, increasing the volume of reuse and further reducing downstream costs.
Why use Author-it Xtend?
The key benefits of using Author-it Xtend include:
- The level of authoring memory granularity has been taken to paragraph level. The result is that overall context does not hinder the ability to reuse a single paragraph from a topic.
- A suggestive reuse pop-up window displays existing fragments similar to the text being typed, enabling the user to type keywords or a portion of the paragraph and then select and insert the full fragment.
- A reduction in review time and costs by reusing previously reviewed content. Users make intelligent choices about content reuse by seeing how many times a fragment has been reused, and the release states that have been applied to the fragment.
- An improvement in quality and consistency of documentation throughout the department or company.
