In Content & assets, open a content item for editing.
Not available for the Create title and Summarize options.
Try again to see if you get different results.
Discard the result.
Give AI your own instructions
Select Ask AI > Improve content to provide custom instructions for the AI. The Improve content option lets you make the AI do pretty much anything with your text, even machine translation.Example instructions:

Author Assist considers content in the current element and writes new content to blend nicely with what you already have.Aside from the current element, Author Assist also uses the wisdom of the whole Internet to generate content for you. While this means its knowledge is virtually limitless, it’s also a reason for you to always review and fact-check what AI wrote.
If the result of your prompt isn’t what you wanted, press Ctrl+Z (⌘+Z on Mac) to remove the generated text, get back to your instructions, refine them, and try again. The refinement usually means getting more specific.You can also retry with the same prompt multiple times. The AI is like humans in this regard – usually, no two writing attempts get you identical results.
