Subheads are useful when writing editorials with numerous sections. Linear has configured its system to automatically recognize when something is supposed to be a subhead. It will then automatically insert the correct formatting code as defined in your defaults.

How to Create Automatically
Essentially, when looking for SubHeads, the system is looking for paragraphs less than 75 characters long - if found, the system will apply the SubHead format tags. Why 75 characters? Well 50 was too short and 100 was too long.

How to Create Manually
You can declare a SubHead by putting <-- LPSH --> at the beginning of a line. Alternatively, you can declare a line is not a SubHead by placing <-- No LPSH --> at the beginning of the line; otherwise, if the SubHead controls have been invoked, the system will search through the editorial item looking for opportunities to format SubHead information.

Purpose
This feature allows your editorial to have different body parts and to allow the visitor to visually skip to the sections they find important. SubHeads also divide am editorial making it visually more appealing.

Quotes
times newspapersWhen we realized we needed to upgrade our Web site, we knew we could not do it alone. Linear Publishing more than answered the call. All the new features we were looking for were already in place at Linear. In addition, if we came up with a feature not yet available, they created it.

We now publish two Web sites a week in less time than it took us to publish one. The free time has opened me up to explore new ideas and features to use on our site. It's a great feeling when you can get an idea and in no time have it up and running online. Thanks to it's ease of use, our Web site is getting better and better every day.

We are always getting compliments from our readers and advertisers. With help from Linear Publishing, we are becoming the e-voice of the community that we were striving for.
