Adding Cross-Reference Formats to Projects
If you are using Adobe FrameMaker or Microsoft Word documents as your source documents for ePublisher, then you can take advantage of the Cross-Reference Formats capability in ePublisher to modify cross references when generating output.
ePublisher obtains the cross-reference formats and values in the Cross-Reference Rules window from your source documents. You can also add cross-reference formats in ePublisher.
For example, if you started to use a new cross-reference format in your source document and the Stationery designer has not yet added this new cross-reference format to the Stationery associated with your project, you can add the new cross-reference format to your project and specify the cross-reference format you want to use for your new cross-reference format. After you add a new cross reference format ePublisher recognizes the new cross reference formats and applies the cross-reference format you specify.
To add a cross-reference format to a project
1. On the Project menu, select the target next to Active Target for which you want to add a cross-reference format.
2. On the Target menu, click Cross Reference Rules. You must have target modification permissions to add a cross-reference format for a target. For more information, see Working with Target Settings.
3. In the Document type field, select the content authoring tool for the cross-reference format you want to add.
4. Click the Add New Cross Reference icon.
5. In the Name field, type a name for the new cross-reference format you want to add to the project.
6. In the Replacement field, type a combination of text and code or building blocks that define how you want your new cross-reference to display. For more information about cross-reference building blocks or codes, see your content authoring tool Help.
7. Click OK.
8. Click OK again to close the window.
9. Generate your output. For more information, see Generating Output.
10. Review your output and confirm that cross-references display appropriately in your generated output. For more information, see Viewing Output.
