Reference to topic with numbering

Unread postby Dmitrii Vasilev » Tue Jan 29, 2019 8:40 am

So, is it possible in H&M to insert topic number in link text?

For example, assume that document structure is something like:
Code: Select all
1 Intro
  1.1 Terminology
2 Work
  2.1 Main functions
  2.2 Users
     2.2.1 Create user...
 ...


So can i insert link like: see 1.1 Terminology? Is it possible if the numbering is not part of the topic names?

I found that you can insert page numbers in printed manual, but we need numbering in other formats, specifically, in docx and html. If there is a way to insert page numbers of referred topics in those formats, it is acceptable for me.

Thank you for the reply, Tim.
Another question then. As far as i understand, i can create custom variables and builds. Can i, for example, have a variable which value depends upon build? E.g.:
What i write:
Code: Select all
Press <%BUTTON_OK%> for accepting terms

Then, i have 2 builds: ADMIN and USER. And when i publish i have:
build ADMIN:
Code: Select all
Press OK for accepting terms

build USER:
Code: Select all
Press ACCEPT for accepting terms

Hi Dmitri,

Can i, for example, have a variable which value depends upon build? E.g.:

You can't make a variable value directly dependent on a build. However, you can achieve this indirectly with the Publishing Task Manager:

https://helpandmanual.com/help/index.ht ... _tasks.htm

Using the manager you can define any number of publishing jobs called "actions", which you can group together in "tasks" that can execute all the actions they contain together. Each action can include both build option settings and individual definitions for the variables defined in your project. So you can contain any number of different actions with different build settings and associated variable definitions. 8)
