What is your experience with this feature? What tips and tricks would you
suggest for making the most of it?
It has been years since I tried using it. The concept is great but I found
it problematic and not worth the effort back then. I've been avoiding it by
splitting books into chapters and using the RD field to generate a TOC and
index for a book. When I really needed this feature, and had the flexibility
to, I used FrameMaker.
I'd like to revisit it so I can reuse content. I'd also like to
cross-reference between files.
Thanks for your advice!
