Extend Your DITA Reuse with Keys hero image

A crucial benefit of moving to a structured authoring environment is the ability to easily reuse content. Text entities, file entities and now with the DITA standard there is also keys and keyrefs. This DITA key method allows a user to create a placeholder for text, file paths or graphics.  Join Pushpinder Toor in the TC Dojo for  a short discussion and demonstration on how to define keys, use keyrefs and take advantage of this versatile reuse mechanism switch.
