I'm sure I'll have lots of basic questions so please bear with me. I am trying to change the title in chapter. We don't use chapter numbers so I did the right thing, turn off numbering on the Gentext tab. However, it didn't go away. I did notice that there is a styler formatted element, _sfe:BeforeOrAfterText. After displaying the styler formatted element in the Styler window, I can't change it in any way and when I delete the element, the tags are still visible. The XML namespace points back to www.arbortext.com/namespace/.... I can't delete the tags. So my questions are:
I did search the board before asking but I didn't see this question asked.
The problem is that I can't change it in Styler at all. It has no style associated with it and the option to associate a style are disabled. There is also another styler formatted element call Gentext with the same issue, no style and styles disabled. As a matter of fact, all of the styler fomatted elements are disabled.
I have Architect but I don't remember how to override the SFEs or it isn't possible to override those.
Maybe I'm looking at it all wrong anyway. My books are parts lists and they have anywhere from 200 to 400 pages with an illustration on the left page and the parts list on the right page. I never intended to place all of my chapters in one book. I'm starting with a book element and that's fine. I need a title page, I need a TOC for each chapter. I don't necessarily need to use chapter as the element I use for each individual parts list two-page spread though it would be easier because the TOC is set up to use chapter titles. But I should be able to change that shouldn't I? I should be able to have the TOC use title in article instead of title in chapter. Does that sound right to anyone?
Sorry, I'm doing some stream of consciousness thinking and I don't really have anyone here to bounce around ideas.
Thank you so very much. I was so frustrated. Next time I'll know to pay attention to that. Is there a reference that can tell me what I need to know or is it just experience? Just based on my limited understanding, it would seem logical to me that all formatting is derived from the Base (All Uses) property settings. I suppose I was thinking thatderivation cascades,kind of like a cascading style sheet, from the top level element, book.Maybe it is just different terminology and I haven't learned the language yet.
