Import the file - On Premises: 2022.R3

Author-it Presentations

The file contains two Author-it XML files:

  1. Presentation Templates.xml. Containing the new objects and templates used in your library to create presentations. This file should be imported first.


  2. Sample Presentation.xml. Containing a sample presentation (book and topics) that can be published from your library to give you an idea of how it all works.

To import the Author-it Templates, Objects, and Sample Presentation:

  1. Open the library you want to import the files into.
  2. Choose the folder to import into.

    We recommend selecting the Restricted folder so the new templates are in located under the same parent folder as your existing templates.

  3. In the main window go to Import >Author-it > XML.
  4. From the folder containing the XML files, select Presentation Templates.xml then click Open to begin importing.
