You can reuse complete topics or text fragments (individual paragraphs).
- Reused topics (embedded topics): You can embed a topic when all of the content from the topic is going to be included in a new topic. Later, if you need to update the topic, just update the original; the changes flow through to all instances in which the topic has been embedded. Just be certain that the topic is written so that it can be reused.
- Reused fragments: you can reuse text fragments when you want to reuse a single paragraph from a topic. After inserting a fragment, you can change the paragraph without it affecting any other instances of that paragraph. When a reused fragment is updated, the fragment is treated as a new paragraph and is stored by Author-it Xtend.
