Create a Glossary
ScreenSteps does not have an automatic way to create a glossary of terms; however, you can manually create a glossary that looks like this...
A | B | C | D | E | F | G | H | I | J | K | L | M | N | O | P | Q | R | S | T | U | V | W | X | Y | Z |
A fruit that grows on trees. Also a technology company that overcharges for its phones.
The capital of the state of Georgia.
A make believe island from one of Plato's stories. Also, a cool hotel in the Bahamas.
You can create a glossary like this by following these four steps.
Step 1: Create the navigation
The navigation is simply a paragraph text block that has the alphabet written out.
Add paragraph text block
Write out the letters of your alphabet
For example: A | B | C | D | E | F | G | H | I | J | K | L | M | N | O | P | Q | R | S | T | U | V | W | X | Y | Z |
Step 2: Add sections
Add Heading blocks for each letter in the alphabet that you have a glossary term for.
Add a Heading block
Type a letter in the alphabet
Repeat for each letter you have a glossary term for
Step 3: Add a Heading Link
- Highlight the letter in the navigation area
- Click the hyperlink icon
- Click Heading Link
- Select the matching letter
Repeat for each letter
Step 4: Create foldable sections for each term
Now you will write down your terms along with the definitions.
Create a Heading > write in the term
Add a Paragraph Text block > write in your description
Write the description of the term in the paragraph block.
Make the heading a foldable section
Repeat for each term
Now your terms are foldable sections. When a user clicks on the term, the definition is revealed. Continue doing that for all of your terms
Wait until you're done writing the terms and definitions then modify terms in bulk.
If you have a lot of terms to write out, you may want to wait until the end to make your terms foldable sections. After you have entered in all of your terms and definitions, you can select multiple headings in the outline view of the article by holding down Command (Mac) or Control (Windows). When you check Foldable section, all of those headings will become foldable sections at once.
