Using the Outline Editor, you can link a new section under any module or section document; however, you cannot link a section under a topic. Linking a new section creates a new document that is stored in the Library (same folder as the parent document) as well as a new link between the section and its parent document.
Note: You can also link an existing section.
When you link a new section from the Outline Editor, the default properties from the parent document are automatically inherited until you change them.
Each section that you link is automatically named "New Section" and placed directly beneath the parent document that you have selected. If the parent document has existing linked documents, the new section appears at the end of the list. For example, if you link a new section under a module that has three existing sections, the new section appears after the third section. You should rename the new section after it is linked.
Note: You can also link a new section that is automatically linked to a new package using the New Section with Package command on the Link menu. This command streamlines the process for linking new sections with package attachments for conceptual content.
To link a new section:
Important Note about Module and Section Documents: A module or section document will appear with a purple or blue book only when the document has at least one linked child document such as a topic or another module or section. However, a module or section document with no linked child documents will appear with a page icon such as for module and for section. When you create a new module or section, it automatically appears as a page icon until you link at least one additional child document. It then appear with a purple or blue icon.
