Pre-populated words

Hi all,

I am very new to Arbortext. I am looking for a way to have a word generated and populated if the line item is selected from the tags.

Example:

NOTE: Close the C/B before beginning any work on the system.

NOTE: would be the word that needs to be pre populated.

Re: Pre-populated words

If you are using .fos style sheets, then you would place a usetext in the tag's eic that used, "\Note: \,", or place the value in a savetext for later use by a usetext.

If you are using .style style sheets, aka Styler, then you would place the word or content in the tag's Gentext tab's "Add before element content".

Styler is the preferred method creating style sheets. I can be used for FOSI composition, APP composition and XSL-FO composition.
