We would like to use the "DivisionReference" functionality in the footer of our documents, to display the name of the current chapter. This is very common in books.
However, due to a deficiency in APP functionality, a "DivisionReference" only works if the DTD in use has a title element that is a direct child of the division element in question, which is not true for our DTD (and for many other DTDs).
Note well that cross-reference functionality in APP finds our titles just fine--it is not limited to the direct child relationship.
Please update this functionality to be able to work in a way similar to cross-references.
My case reference: https://www.ptc.com/apps/case_logger_viewer/auth/ssl/case=11385540
DivisionReference is a Styler thing, so not APP. AFAIK, the Division is a fundamental concept in Styler which allows documents to be formed of nested sections. Each section (Division) may have a title element, and if it does that is the title of the Division which you may grab using the DivisionReference.
I'm not exactly sure what you're asking for here, perhaps a generic running header feature? APP already includes that functionality but it is not exposed via the Styler UI.
This seems to be a duplicate Idea? I just responded to your other idea which sounds identical to this.
DivisionReference has a artificial limitation (bug?) where it will only find the title element if it is a direct child of the division element, whereas cross-references will find the title element even if it is three levels down. As the referenced case shows, PTC has confirmed this limitation, and has failed to find a workaround.
