Link title builder

Unread post by Ga Bowen » Fri Mar 13, 2020 9:32 am

When I create a link in a manual the title is basically the Topic structure.

So if I create a link that refers to the adjustment section of a robot arm, it will display as Maintenance, Robot, Arm - Adjust.

At the moment I type this in manually which can lead to problems if the Topic in question changes name or location.

I would like a way for either H+M to build the link itself (as a list of the cascading Topics) or the ability to determine your own.

Hope this makes sense.

Hi Gareth,

This is already supported: Instead of the caption, type in the variable <%TARGETTITLE%> in the link caption field in the link tool. Then the current TOC title of the target topic will be used. 8)
