There are two different ways you can create an article in the browser app:

Option 1: create an article within a chapter

The easiest way to create an article is to create it inline in the chapter table of contents. As you move your cursor over the space between two articles you will see a + icon (1). Click on it to add an article at that location.

You can also click on the Create New Article button (2) to create a new article at the end of the chapter.

  1. Enter a title.
  2. Configure any additional options (options may vary based on your account type).
  3. Click Create article.
