Parent page: Data Management Preferences

The Data Management - Design Repositories page of the Preferences dialog


The Data Management – Design Repositories page of the Preferences dialog allows you to create or connect to a design repository.

When signed into a managed content server, a green icon () appears next to the name of the page in the folder region to denote that the page is under the server's control.


The Data Management – Design Repositories page is part of the main Preferences dialog that is accessed by clicking the  control in the upper-right corner of the workspace then selecting the Design Repositories entry under the Data Management folder.
