What are Sub Pages? #
Sub-Pages are Pages that are accessed from within another Page. Sub-Pages can be a useful tool to organise and manage your workspace.
Just like Pages, a Sub-Page can be of any Page Type
Pages and Sub-Pages #
If you consider the Pages within your Sidebar as Top Level Pages, then any other Pages that have been added into a Top Level Page would be Sub-Pages, since they sit ‘below’ the Top Level Page.
The Sub-Page relationship applies to any Pages that sit within another Page. It’s somewhat similar to having a series of folders inside each other. You can ‘nest’ pages infinitely so you could have Sub-Pages of a Sub-Page of a Page
To add a Sub-Page, add a new Section to your Page and select Add New Page from the options. This section of your page can be rearranged to any position using drag and drop
Sub-Pages created in this way, will appear in your Side Bar navigation when you expand the drop down arrows.
If you relocate a page in your Sidebar to sit underneath another page, then you have made a Sub-Page.
From the Sidebar Menu, you can see Pages and their Sub-Pages by expanding the menu using the arrow icons. Clicking on the page will take you directly to it.
Clicking the Links in the relevant Page Section will open a Sub-Page
The Properties Menu of each Page (located in the top right) will also display all Sub-Pages under the Pages Tab.
Tables and Sub-Pages #
Sub-Pages can also be added into Tables using the Sub-Page property, which automatically appears in all new Tables.
In the Sub Page field of your Table, use the + button to create a new Sub-Page in a given row.
You can also drag and drop external files into the relevant Sub Page field of a row to quickly add a group of items as Sub-Pages.
If you expand the row of your table into a page, and add Sub-Pages to it, these will then display in the corresponding Sub-Page Property field when you return to Table View.
In the Table view, click the sub-page of interest to open it.
Sub-Pages added into a Table will not be accessible through the Sidebar.
Atoms in Sub-Pages #
The relationship between Pages and Sub-Pages influences how any Atoms captured behave. Atoms that are captured in a Sub-Page will also display as Atoms of the next Page up (or Parent Page).
Changing a Page to a Sub-Page #
If you want to reorganise your workspace and change a Page to a Sub-Page, you can drag and drop that page using the Sidebar.
Alternatively, you can change a page’s location using the Move to New Location button and selecting where you want the page to sit in your workspace.
Managing Many Levels of Sub-Pages #
There is no limit to how many levels of sub-pages you can add in your workspace. There is also the option to add Sub-Pages through the Properties Menu, but these sub-pages do not display in the sidebar.
In the Page, expand the Properties Menu, swap to the Pages Tab and create a new Sub Page in this section.
This is in keeping with the Pages in the sidebar representing folders and then these sub-pages being equivalent to the documents held in a folder, which display once you open a folder.
All your sub-pages are searchable in Workspace Search.
Sub-Page List #
In every page, expand the Properties Menu and navigate to the Pages tab to see a list of all Sub-Pages.
