Subject:could use some help with Running H/Fs From:"Melissa Clark" <melissa -dot- s -dot- clark -at- gmail -dot- com> To:techwr-l -at- lists -dot- techwr-l -dot- com Date:Mon, 19 Nov 2007 11:25:31 -0800
I'm trying to define some extra Runing H/Fs in the variables to be
used on the master pages.
My settings are:
Running H/F 10 = <$paratext[Product Number]>
Running H/F 11 = <$paratext[Document Title]>
where Product Number and Document Title are paragraph tags
For example, Product Number is a 7-digit number and Document Title
could be something like "specification" or "datasheet". There are
definitely spaces in the variable titles (as shown above) and the 2
variables (Product Number and Document Title) are defined (not blank),
and I generated the book (which shouldn't make any difference) after
updating the variables.
The header using these variables is defined as:
Running H/F 10 Running H/F 11
(they are right next to each other)
For some reason, the line using the Running H/F 10 and 11 variables is
still blank. Does anyone know what I might be doing wrong?
(This question has also been cross-posted to the framers listserv.)
