Reusability of Author-it objects - Cloud

KC Author-it Objects

Reusability is one of Author-it’s strengths. Each object can be reused without limit, in the same project or in multiple projects.

When you change an object, the change updates instantly everywhere the object is used. This saves time, guarantees consistency, and simplifies content maintenance.

Combine the same topics in different ways by using different books, or arrange the same topics in a different order in each book. For example, the sequence of topics in a tutorial may differ from that in a reference manual on the same subject.

Author-it is based on Component Content Management, in which all components of your content, such as images, hyperlinks, styles, and even paragraphs, are stored as objects in a database.
