Adding text or image frames to an existing article in Smart Connection

Adding text or image frames to an existing article in Smart Connection

When an article is created it consists of one or more components such as a 'head', 'intro' and 'body' component.

There may come a time when you want to add additional components to the article, such as a frame containing an image or other text frames.

This can be done by:

  • Adding the frames when checking-in the article
  • Using the Elements Panel

Info: The information presented here applies to the following versions of Smart Connection:

  • Smart Connection 9
  • Smart Connection for Adobe CC
  • Smart Connection for Adobe CC 2014

Adding the frames when checking-in the article

Step 1. Make sure that the article to which you want to add more frames is checked-out.

Step 2. Select at least one frame that is part of the article as well as the other frame(s) that you want to add to the article.

Step 2. Check-in the article.
