This feature is available in Standard Pro and Enterprise plans.

With Inline Manual files, you can upload pictures directly within the Inline Manual portal. Then, you can use them in your steps or articles. Whenever you need to replace the image, you can do it just within the Inline Manual portal, without the need to update every single topic that contains this image.

In this article, we’ll show you how files work.
