Suggestion for functionality with projects within projects

Unread postby itexnz » Thu Jul 19, 2018 11:12 pm

Hi, I often use the feature of including a project as a chapter within another project

E.g. I have a separate glossary project which I include where needed. Also I have a global overview project which I use to create an all-in-one PDF for partner companies and support staff, which has each separate publication as a chapter.

Now, the features I'd like from the one location (assuming I've set the linked projects not to be readonly) are;

* Ability to run the find and replace tool to search topic text, keywords, etc., of all linked projects.
* Spellcheck topics (the spellcheck tool will work on table of contents but not topics.)
* Run the Report Tool (some aspects work but it mostly gives misleading info for linked projects, e.g. the Unused Images feature does not correctly identify images that are genuinely not used by one or more linked projects.

I've moved this to the Wish List section because that is monitored directly by our developers. These are all good suggestions. I can't promise which of them will get implemented how soon, but they are definitely things that are on our radar., 8)

I also need this feature to be able to find (and replace) in tables as I have quite a lot of table in my projects
