Is it possible to re-use the same image in multiple topics?
2 years ago
I am evaluating the HelpSmith trial and it seems very good for my needs.
Just wondering, does HelpSmith allows reusing an image in other topics?
For example, if I have inserted an image in one topic, can I insert it (i.e. link to the same image file), in another topic. If so, when I need to update the image (e.g. a screenshot of my application), I can simply update the image file in one place.
Is that possible?
Yes, HelpSmith automatically puts all the image and video files to the project's Media Repository, which allows you to insert the same image to other topics.
For more details on the Media Repository, you can visit:
How to re-use an image or video
You can insert an image (or video) into a topic directly from the Media Repository of your help project.
How to update an image (e.g. screenshot)
Yes, HelpSmith allows you to update an image file directly in the Media Repository (Project|Project Objects|Media Repository), so it will be updated in all the topics containing that image.
