Navigate through content by swiping
On touch-enabled devices, swipe to move between topics.
Use the swipe action to move between topics at the same level in the TOC, or to move between a parent and child topics in a sub menu.
The topic indicator at the top of the page lets you see how many topics are at this level or in this sub menu, and your current location in this group of topics.
In this screenshot, the sub menu has four topics: Introduction, Our Story, Our Philosophy, and The Exciting World of Teleportation. The TOC and the topic indicator highlight the current topic.

The entries in the TOC will take you to a topic or to a sub menu, which is created when your content in Author-it is in a sub book or organized into levels.
