The Passage feature allows you to create and format long text passages, and then add these passages to items. Passages can also be shared across items.

To add a passage, follow the steps below:

  • Create an item as normal and from the Features section select Passage.
  • In the Feature Editor area, insert the passage Heading and then Contents. This field supports HTML formatted data and includes font styling, paragraph styling, layout templating, embedded images, LaTeX and MathML.

Enable pagination content

You can enable paginated content on a shared passage at any time, either when you create the passage or when you edit an existing passage. Check the box beside Enable paginated content - this can be found underneath More options. Multiple text input fields will now appear in the contents area, and each one represents a separate page of the passage.
