Hi folks,

One of the things that Frame lets you do when setting up headers is to
set up a Running H/F variable that can pull text from more than one
style, such as <$paratext[Title, AppendixTitle]>, which pulls the text
from the first tag with either the Title or AppendixTitle tag.

I need to do the same thing in Word. Is this even possible, and if so,
how? I'm looking at the StyleRef field codes, but that seems to be
pretty much restricted to only one Style, and inserting two codes gets
you (you guessed it), text from both styles when I only want text from
which ever is most recent.

The template is for use by engineers, so we're trying to automate as
much as possible. If they have to go into the header to change which
style is being reff'd, we've failed. :(
