Ok, I am using Epic 5.3 with styler on an S1000D document. I am trying to do an internal cross reference from one element to another. Doing it the way the documentation says to do it, sorta kinda gets me what I want.
The problem is I cant get it to pick up the enumeration automatically and if I try to manually to type it in, this is what happens..... [cid:image002.png@01CADD58.D30AEE90] It places the typed text between my generated text, Any IDEAS?

I work with 40051, not S1000D, but we have a similar issue.
Your isolationStep tag is not a step - the action is. Try assigning the id="is1.1" to <action id="StepIs1.1"> or something similar.
In our case we have an endblock with an ID as a container, but the step numbers actually start at the malfunction statement, ergo <endblock id="Eb5000-25"><malfunction id="Ma5000-25">[gentext step#] Generator is faulty.</malfunction><action>[gentext step#] Replace generator <xref stepstart="Ma5000-26">[gentext]Step 18[/gentext].</action> or something very similar to that. Our test blocks are the same way <testblock id="Tp5000-2"><step1 id="St5000-2"> and xref'ing to a testblock gets no gentext step# so we have to id the Step1 as well and link to that.
I assume you use the FOSI for print? 40051 has gone XSL-FO to print so the print output is different from the screen gentext - if you print via an FO, then print and see if you get a different result in a PDF.
Hope that helps,
