Discover how to convert a component, such as a topic, into a different type of component, such as an informal topic or an appendix.
Use the Metadata Section to convert a component into a different type of component. This is much quicker than creating a new component and then moving the required content into it.
For example, let's say you have created a topic but you later realize that it would be more useful as an informal topic. By using the Subtype option in the topic's metadata, you can quickly convert it into an informal topic.
To convert a component into a different type of component:
Select the Dotted menu (...) to the right of the topic or component in the Content Manager.
Select Edit and choose Open structure.
Use the Subtype dropdown list to change the component type.
You can choose from any of the components in the list. Other components are not supported.
Select Update to apply the change.
