General settings

Library configuration & administration

When you are working with topics in the Editor you can insert file objects using the Insert File Object from Thumbnail option.

Insert File Object from Thumbnail displays file objects in a folder as thumbnails, making it easier to locate the correct image. The General Settings option is used to configure the Folders drop-down list in the Insert File Object From Thumbnail dialog box. The folders drop-down list can be configured to include any commonly used folders within the library, so users can quickly locate folders containing the images they need.


To add folders to the general settings:

  1. Open the General Settings window, from the main Author-it Administrator window go to Settings > General Settings...
  2. In the General Settings window, click Add.
  3. In the Select a Folder window, select the folder you want to add, then click OK. Repeat this step until you have added all of the folders you require for the Thumbnails.
  4. Click OK in the General Settings window to save your folder selections.
