Embedding a callout

Callouts allow you to highlight specific text that stands out from the rest of the information displayed in a topic. You can add four types of callouts to your topic:

  • Tip—Provides a suggestion or recommendation to visitors.
  • Note—Provides an important piece of information to visitors.
  • Caution—Provides an indication that visitors should be cautious.
  • Warning—Provides an urgent warning to visitors.

To embed a callout:

  1. Place your cursor within the text where you would like to place the callout. The callout is displayed on its own line below where you put your cursor.
  2. Click image and select Callout from the available choices.
  3. From the Callout list, select Inline or Shared.
