Promoting a set of subtopics to topics in an outline
When you have a number of subtopics you want to move to the left—that is, to promote them in the outline hierarchy—you can move them all at the same time. When you promote a set of subtopics, they become parallel to the selected topic. Any subtopics contained by topics you promote also move one level to the left.
1.Select the topic that contains the subtopics.
2.On the Outline menu, choose Promote.
The subtopic or subtopics move to the left one level, raising them in the outline hierarchy.
