Any way to create a second text item type?

  • 1.  Any way to create a second text item type?

    Is there a way to create an item type with specific fields that behaves like a text item organizationally?  For example, I have a story item type and would like to use a non-story item type along with it to include supplemental information.  The only item type that I can bundle within the Story set is text item type.  I could use that, but we also want some specific fields included in the supplemental information items...but I don't want to apply those fields to all instances of the text item type.  Basically, I would like to have a second text item type that I can configure with specific fields so that I can use it within a story set for content organization.

    Hi Mary,

    Text items are nice because of their versatility, but unfortunately there is not a way to duplicate them as another item type/no other item types can be created with the same versatility. I'd have to say this is a feature request since there isn't a way to work around it.
