If you need to change a procedure to make several steps sub to a new step, you don’t have to move the elements one by one, just wrap the elements.
- In the Structure View window, highlight the steps that need to become substeps.
- In the Elements catalog, highlight the Step element, then click the Wrap button.
The steps are now sub to the new Step element, but the structure is broken.
- Add a Para element below to the new Step element and type in the new text.
- Select the sub steps.
- In the Elements catalog, highlight the SubStep element, then click the Change button.
The structure will now be correct.
