Navigation pane and Book Content pane

The Book editor workspace contains a Navigation pane and a Book Content pane.

The Navigation pane lists all the topics in your book.

The Book Content pane shows you the contents of all your topics, in the order shown in the Navigation pane. Unlike Author, where you have to open each topic to view the content, quick-editing mode displays all content of every topic.
