    1. In the Workspace page, click on the workspace for which you want to create the Matrix. The selected workspace's page appears.

    6. Click Next in the upper-right corner. The Mark Sections page appears.

      • When a new matrix is created with a document that was configured for another matrix, you can opt to carry the configurations from the previously shredded document to the new matrix. You can edit the configuration, if required.
      • During matrix creation, sections and sub-sections are now auto-identified for the documents that have Table of Content (TOC) or have the sections and subsections with proper heading formatting.
    7. Mark Section(Optional): The system processes the selected document and automatically identifies and marks the sections.
      You can either accept the suggested marking or additionally customize them further by clicking on a heading and marking the selection as a section or sub-section using the floating toolbar. 
    8. Click Next in the upper-right corner. A pop-up as shown below appears. You can either select the content from the Table of Contents on the left pane or from the Preview.
    9. Click Got it. The Select Content page appears.
