Re-importing HTML source files and creating topics

Re-importing HTML and Word Source Files

The Import Profile contains rules determining how source content is imported. The Topic Creation rules use heading styles to break the source content into Author-it topics.

Source Files with Headings



HTML source file has one heading; one topic will be created in the Author-it library.


When the HTML source file contains two headings (Heading 1 and Heading 2); content will be split into two topics (at the Heading styles) and the parent and child structure will be created in the book. The way the file is split depends on the import rules used in the profile.


Separate HTML source files in an import will also create a parent and child structure when one HTML source file uses a Heading 1 style and the other HTML source file uses a Heading 2 style.
