How to use the Outline Editor in KoalaWriter

If you want to customize your output more, we recommend enabling the Outline Editor. Doing this will enable you to add, remove, or rearrange article sections before creating the article.


In the Outline Editor, you will also get the option to give KoalaWriter more prompts about what to include in each section.

Now, let's walk through how to use the Outline Editor in KoalaWriter. The target keyword for my examples in this guide is "Can you eat watermelon seeds?"

Outline Prompt



Under the Advanced Options on the KoalaWriter page, you will find the Outline Prompt. This is an optional prompt; you can use the Outline Editor even without this.

But, if you already have an outline ready for the article, you can paste it here to save time.

Below is my sample article outline:


Notice how each H2 is placed on a new line, and each H3 is indented once. You can insert an indent by simply pressing the spacebar once before each H3.

Note: Currently, only one level of indention is supported, so you cannot add an H4.

Revise the Outline



Once you click "Create Article" after enabling the Outline Editor, you will be redirected to the Outline Editor page. Here, you can rearrange the sections, edit them, add more, or remove some.

If you don't like the article outline you get, you can click "Cancel" and try again. Your credits will not get used.

If you used the Outline Prompt, the Outline Editor page should show the sections you entered, plus an Introduction. KoalaWriter creates an introduction for each article by default, but you can remove it on the Outline Editor page.

Here is the Outline Editor page for the article outline I entered into the Outline Prompt:


Turn an H2 to H3 or vice versa

To turn an H2 into an H3, click and drag it to the right. Note that you cannot move an H2 that has H3s under it.

If you want to turn an H3 into an H2, click and drag it to the left.

Edit a subheading

To edit a subheading, hover over it; two buttons should appear on its right end. Click the edit button (), and you should be able to edit it on the window that appears on the right side. Remember to click Save at the bottom when you're done!

Blog Post



When you edit a section in a blog post article type, this is what you will see:


Amazon Product Roundup



When you click to edit a section in an Amazon Product Roundup outline, this is what you will see:


Replacing the ASIN here will change the product to be included in the article.

• Remove a subheading

To remove a subheading, simply hover over it and click the remove button () on the right.

• Add a subheading

If you want to add a subheading, click the "Add Section" button on the lower left part of the page. A window should pop up where you can choose to enter a regular H2 or a new product H2.


Regular H2


If your article type is "blog post," please choose the Regular H2 Section.

Just enter the heading you want to add, and it will be inserted in the outline. You can then keep it as an H2 or make it an H3.


New Product H2


If the article type you chose is "Amazon Product Roundup," please choose the New Product Section.

Simply enter the product ASIN, and the product will be inserted in the Outline.


Provide Extra Section Prompts for Specific Sections



If you want to provide more detailed prompts for a specific section, hover over it, click the edit button (), and a window should appear on the right.

Enter your prompt, and click Save. 

Below is a sample prompt for one of my H2s. You can use more prompts if you wish.


Specify Keywords or Topics to Cover in Specific Sections



If you want to specify what keywords to target for a specific section, hover over it, click the edit button (), and a window should appear on the right.

Enter your prompt, and click Save. 


Create the Article



Once you're satisfied with your outline and Extra Section Prompts, click the Write Article button. KoalaWriter will begin creating the article, which should be finished within minutes.

Here is a sample of how KoalaWriter followed my Extra Section Prompt: "Arrange the nutritional values in a table."
