Can I change the topic type after I’ve created a topic?
No, each topic type uses its own content structure, so elements in one topic type may not be valid in another topic type.
Let’s look at Task and Reference topics. Task topics contain procedures, whereas Reference topics typically contain tables. There are elements in Task topics – such as Context, Steps, and Result – that are not valid in Reference topics. Similarly, there are elements in Reference topics – such as Section, Title, and Table – that are not valid in Task topics.
