Reuse Components in the Map Editor

You can reuse components like topics or maps by using the Map Editor.

  1. In the Content Library, double-click a map to open it in the Content Editor.
  2. In the Content Library, navigate to the component(s) that you want to add to the map.
  3. Drag and drop the component(s) from the Content Library into the Map Editor.
    Tip: A line appears that indicates where the component will be added. If you drop a component on another component, a green box appears. The green box indicates that the new component will be added as a child of the component that is already in the map.
    A video showcases how the user can drag and drop components to easily insert them into a map tree.
  4. If prompted, from the Insert drop-down menu, select a relevant reference type and click Insert.
    When adding content to the map tree the user can select a reference type from a drop-down menu.
    Note: Your Heretto CCMS instance can be configured to automatically select the appropriate reference type for you. If you want to select the reference type on your own, you can hold Shift while dragging and dropping a resource into the map tree.

    To disable or enable the intelligent drag and drop feature, contact a Customer Success Manager.

  5. Click Insert.
