Step Two: Descriptor Categories

The first step in defining an Authoring Terminology is to define a simple hierarchy of categories to organise your descriptors.

The hierarchy is used mainly to help users find the right term. Typically, it will be fairly broad and shallow - perhaps ten to fifteen top level categories, with a hundred or so subcategories descending a further four or five levels deep at most, although there is no fixed limit to this.

Use Add Root to add new top level categories, and Add Child to add a category as a child of the currently selected category
