Author - On Premises 6.4

Release Notes

  • To improve security in Author-it Cloud, we’ve removed the ability to create embedded OLE objects. You can still use and edit your existing embedded OLEs, and create linked OLE objects, which offer the same functionality.
  • You can now delete text that contains embedded topics. When you highlight some text inside a topic, Author will allow you to delete it, no matter how many embedded topics it has. That's going to make it faster and easier to edit topics. If you change your mind, you can undo the deletion. 
  • We've added your recently used variables to the top of the Variables menu, to make them easier to find.
  • If you use Author-it Cloud and the Insert file object from thumbnail option inside topics, you'll be happy to know that your administrators can select which folders are available by default. Just click File > Thumbnail Folders in Author, and select your preferred folders. They'll appear in the Folder dropdown, whenever you click Insert file object from thumbnail.
  • We made the Properties window for publishing profiles easier to use. The books in the Applies To tab are now sorted by alphabetical order, and book templates are bold. It's a simple change, but it will make it a lot easier to find the books and book templates that a publishing profile applies to.
