When working with embedded content, we recommend that you have the paragraph markers turned on so that you can more easily identify characters, spaces, or paragraph markers at the edges of the embedded content. In the Editor, choose Edit > Format > Show Paragraph Markers.
Embedded content within a container topic is displayed with a gray background, and you cannot modify the embedded content. In certain circumstances, text protection will be applied across multiple embedded topics. This occurs when an embedded topic is directly followed by another embedded topic (that is, there is no container content between the embedded topics).
Container content is displayed with a white background, matching the topic background. Container content can be modified.
The following examples show embedded text strings within a paragraph, but also apply to embedded paragraphs that follow each other in the container topic.
