Insert a reusable component (conref) in oXygen

You can add a reusable component to a target topic in oXygen from the Referable-Component view.

When you add a reusable component using the Referable-Component view, the DITA CMS inserts a conref to the reusable component in the target topic.

To add a reusable component in oXygen:

  1. Open the topic where you want to reuse text in your XML editor.
  2. Place your cursor where you want to add the reusable component.
    Make sure that your cursor is in a valid position for the type of element you want to insert. For example, you cannot add a reusable component of type <step> in a topic of type concept.
  3. Use the Referable-Content view to search for the component to reuse.
  4. In the search results, right-click the reusable text and select oXygen Edit > Insert as conref.
    The reusable text is included in the document.
  5. Save your target file.
