Content Library question type

Applies to Infiniti v8.0 or later

Content Library

The Infiniti content library provides a way to store re-usable content, such as text, images, document fragments, file-attachments and audio. These may include legal clauses, corporate logos, tables or graphs. The actual content items are maintained in ‘Manage’.

By default, content library questions are not visible to users in ‘Produce’, and can be used to place specific content items into the document as chosen at design time. You can also set content library questions to visible, which makes them interactive questions.

 Document Preparation

Standard or selection placeholders can be used throughout the document to specify where the content items are to be inserted.


How to add a content library question

1.    From the toolbox, drag and drop a Content Library question onto a page, section column or tab and set the question’s properties as below.


Description / Examples


Check to allow interaction with the question

The remaining properties are available only if Visible is checked.

Content Type

Selects the type of content to be expected.

Content Item

For outputted content and display types a particular content item must be selected, use the ‘…’ button to search for an appropriate text content library item.

Auto Answer
Available if Visible is not selected. When checked, references another question to search for a specific filename in the content library.

Infiniti automatically adds an answer to the new question.

2.    If the question is visible:
  • Drag and drop any placeholders that are to be populated by the user-selected content item onto the answer.
3.    If the question is invisible:
  • Use the Content Library tab to drag and drop an existing item onto the answer. If there are a large number of content items, use the Search field to filter the results.
  • Drag and drop any bookmarks that are to be populated onto the content item.


Document Fragment Placeholders

When you add a document fragment to a question set, it becomes available in the Placeholders tab for you to use any placeholders the fragment may contain in your question set. The fragment name is added to the Document Fragments element, with a list of its placeholders.

To use a document fragment’s placeholders simply expand the list of placeholders using the plus icon (), and drag and drop any relevant placeholders onto the question set.

You may locate a document fragment in the question set from the Placeholders tab by right-clicking on the fragment and choosing Find in Question Set from the pop-up menu. This will return a list of all instances of the selected fragment in the Find Results window.
