The Path layout embeds a visualization at the top of the page that shows the path contents of the current page in a tree diagram. The reader can expand sub-paths of the tree to explore its contents. The rest of the page follows the Basic layout, with text and media interspersed.
The path visualization displays all paths in the book in a hierarchical format, with content color-coded by type. You can scroll or pinch to zoom the view, or click and hold to drag its contents around. Clicking any filled circle will reveal its connections; clicking again will hide them. Clicking an item's title opens the associated content (page or media file).
