So I went to create a relationship between two objects and noticed that there is a tab called "Articles" along the side. I clicked on it and see a plethora of object classes... but cannot figure out where to add a new article at.

Is this an Easter Egg or am I just not seeing the forest for all the electronic trees?

You can create topics as Articles rather than in the Story or World Almanacs.

Appreciate the post, but that was still a little cryptic.

I've discovered several ways to create an "article".
1) When I create a contained topic, I click on the icon in the upper right corner and there are options to create as a "Story Topic", "World Topic" "Plot", "Article", or "User Note".
2) From the "Create New Content Dialog", once you select the "Articles" tab, you can add an article there.

Once linked as a Contained Topic or a Relationship, you can go to it and edit it.

And articles can be found under the "Home" menu, but they are listed as "Mechanics Reference"...

This one is a 'feature'... you can tell a topic to create an article as a contained topic and it will create the article, but it will not be contained.

Ah sorry. There was a change of name since the beta.

The "Mechanics Reference" contains Articles, whereas the Story and World Almanac contain Topics.

It is not possible to have the "contained in" arrangement between the Articles in the Mechanics Reference and the Topics in the Story/World Almanacs. Although I think it IS possible to do it between the Story Almanac and World Almanac.

If you look on the "Manage" ribbon and select "Categories" then you will see the Topic categories (for Story/World Almanacs) and the Article categories for use in the Mechanics Reference.

You can add a new article to one of the "Mechanics Reference" section in the same way that you add topics to the Almanacs.

You can also use <ctrl+Q> to create any top-level content element from just about anywhere, including articles.
