  • (Content Station version 9.0 – 9.4) As content in a Document pane (for Publication Channels that do not make use of Publish Forms, such as print, Adobe DPS, and Drupal 6 based Web sites.) This Document pane only shows the content for the chosen Publication Channel (note the difference with the Dossier Content option (see Info pane below), which shows all files that are added to the Dossier).
