It seems that the only way to add an article is to add it to a chapter and not directly to a manual? What if I have a simple "manual" that only has 10 articles? It would be easier for the reader to not have these divided into "chapters." Is there a way to have articles directly intermingled with chapters in the contents?

@Eric: You're correct - articles do need to be added to a chapter. I'll provide your feedback regarding wanting to be able to add them directly to a manual to our product team.
