I'm trying to get gentext in Editor to pop up Item Numbers that are xref'd in different documents.
PTC's FOSI manual says external xrefs are only supported in ACL, but I can't find any data about that in the ACL manuals.
Can someone help me get started here? I do have the filename (minus the ".xml") as an attribute in the xref if that helps.
<xref itemid="ExMRS00004-87" posttext=")" pretext="(" wpid="S00004-9-2355-319"/">
It would also be extremely helpful if I could throw a warning that the work package referenced (wpid) does not exist. With wpid's that complicated, I'm seeing lots of typos that don't get found until the work package is inserted into the full manual and the xrefs can be updated with real data...which is really a bit late as writers aren't allowed to do that themselves.
