Shared Passages


The Passage feature allows you to create and format long text passages, and then add these passages to items. Passages can also be shared across items.

To add a passage, follow the steps below:

  • Create an item as normal and from the Features section select Passage.
  • In the Feature Editor area, insert the passage Heading and then Contents. This field supports HTML formatted data and includes font styling, paragraph styling, layout templating, embedded images, LaTeX and MathML.
  • Click Save and Close to return to the Item.

Shared Passages

To use an existing passage on an item, follow the steps below:

  • Create an item as normal. You will notice three vertical dots appearing in the top right-hand corner of the item.
  • Click through to Find existing passage.
  • This will take you to a list of all passages previously created. From here you can search by content, preview and select the passage you wish to use.

Paginated Passages

You can enable paginated content on a shared passage at any time, either when you create the passage or when you edit an existing passage. Check the box beside Enable paginated content - this can be found underneath More options. Multiple text input fields will now appear in the contents area, and each one represents a separate page of the passage.
