Application areas

  • Multiple use of a (partial) document in other documents
  • Mapping of variants and configurations
  • Mass change of documents (1 change in any document)

Modular blocks

You can nest different documents in each other and thus create a modular structure. This means that you create individual, usually smaller documents that you can use in other documents using the modular principle.

Each document can always be used as a building block at the same time, respectively it becomes a building block as soon as you link it in another document.

As a general rule

  • Every document is also always a building block
  • You can insert "blocks" in any document
  • There are no hierarchical levels. This is only created by nesting.

You can insert a document as a module as New Step / Insert Module.

Inserting a module

Document counter in the search

By showing additional columns (with Adjust Columns), you can display in the Search how often the document is used as a module and how many modules it contains.

Currently, the documents are displayed and counted up to the first level.

For each document you can easily see how many modules it contains or how often this document is used as a module in other documents.

Modular tree within the meta information

You can now display in the editor in many different ways which documents are linked together as a module.

To do so, please open the meta information of a document.

Here you will find, among other things, a Tree Structure of the modules used in this document, but this information is also available in tabular form under Modules.

You can also see in which documents the current document is Used as a module.
