How to copy a chapter to another manual

You cannot copy a chapter to another manual in version 4. If you want to duplicate content from a chapter into another manual, you can follow these steps.

1. Create a new chapter

1.1. Include a Title > Save Chapter

2. Click the dropdown arrow

3. Select Add article

4. Check off the articles

You can add as many articles as you want. Simply check them off, and then select Reference, Duplicate, or Move.

Publishing the articles in the chapter

After you add the articles, they will not be published. If you want to publish them all at once, simply click the dropdown and select Publish.

Publish all articles

If I choose copy and later update the original item, will the copy be updated automatically? (or is this the function of referencing instead?)

@Brett -

If you want changes applied to the original article then you should select "Reference," not "Copy."

I am not getting the "Reference" option on the dialog box when moving the article to the new manual while holding the option key.

@Karen - check to make sure you are dragging the chapter to a different manual. If you drop the chapter within the same manual you won't get the "Reference" option.
