8. Adding Navigation Elements

8.1 Categories

Categories serve as a device for a logical segmentation of the project into consecutive units. It is advisable that the first category comes before the first page of the project (Category – Cover).

To add a category, click the Create new category icon situated above the list of preview pages. The new category is always added above the currently highlighted page. All following pages fall under one category until you create another one. After clicking Create new category, a fill-out form will appear and you will be asked to enter the Category name. Create the category by clicking Create.

Within the Category, it is possible to:

  • Change its position by dragging it using your mouse,
  • Change its name by double-clicking the category on the page list >> this will open the editing mode; now it is possible to enter the new name >> press “Enter” to confirm,
  • Remove it by clicking the “x”-button in the upper right corner.

Add Category

On the tablet, the navigation by categories will be displayed at the bottom along with all the pages and corresponding categories.

They are displayed in the right part of the tablet in form of a list of pictures with descriptions. They serve as navigation tools.

The topics are represented by a picture.
