Structure View

You can use Structure View to add topics to your publications, view the metadata, and get a quick preview of your content.

  1. In the Content Manager, find the publication, topic, or other component that or topic you want to view. Then select its option menu ( ... ).

  2. Select Edit > Open Structure.

    Paligo displays the Structure View, which consists of three sections:



The Structure section, showing the structure of the component, i.e if it has nested topics reused in it.

The Structure section is mostly used for Publications. This is where you create your publications by reusing topics. You can drag and drop topics here and then organize them into a hierarchy to create the structure you want. Think of building your publication structure as creating a table of contents for your publication.



The Metadata section shows information (metadata) about the publication, topic, or component, including:

  • The author of the component

  • The creation date

  • The workflow status (Work in Progress, Released, etc.)

  • Used in (where the component is used, whether it is reused there or being linked to by a cross-reference)

  • Which publications a component is reused in (Related Publications)

  • The location of the component.


    The location widget shows the full path, with a link. You can select the link to open the location.


The Paligo Structure View preview section

The Preview section gives you a convenient way to view the content of a topic, without having to open it in the editor.


The preview feature is not available for certain components, such as informal topics. To preview an informal topic, add the informal topic to a regular topic as a component, and then preview the regular topic. (Use Insert > Component to add the informal topic as a component).
