use tiv out of scope?

Is there a way to use a tiv out of its scope? I tried to do a LEP for the entire document by using the Chapter LEPs, which uses a tiv scoped to chapter. Even if I save the tiv to a tdv, it still gets flagged as out of scope. I was wondering if there was a way to save a tiv (or "freeze" the contents) to another variable so the scope would be irrelevant. If I delete the scope, the chapter LEPs don't work correctly, and I haven't figured out how to force a reset on the tiv.

Probably others on the list can give more detailed advice on this, but I thought the usual approach for this type of thing was two-stage. First you save your chapter LEP information out to disk with a usetext/userule="1". Next, you compile an LEP for the entire document by combining and composing all of the chapter LEP files. Glue to the two PDFs together et voila! 🙂

Caroline,

A tiv requires a scope. It is not a tiv without a scope.

Also, a tiv does not need a <reset> category to reset it. It resets itself for each new scope.

Note that a tiv can have more than one scope. For example, toc.app could have scope="introduction discussion conclusion".

I think you will need to code the document LEP in a different way.

Good luck!

I'm not quite sure what you mean by "Chapter LEP", but we create a LEP for the document which lists the change level for each "chunk" of a book, such as a chapter. Every chapter begins on a recto page and ends on a verso page. Our page model has two recto pages: a "First" recto page (recto1) and all other recto pages. Every recto1 page saves the page number of the recto1 page as the first half of the LEP entry (e.g. Page 4-1 through - ) and every verso page, including blank pages, saves the page number of the verso/blank page as the second half of the LEP entry. So you end up with Page 4-1 through 4-14 for the LEP entry. This is a relatively easy and simple way to automatically create a LEP using FOSI only. However, the down side of this is that, if you change one word in a Chapter, you must re-release the entire chapter.
If this is not what you want, then feel free to ignore this email.

Thank you all for your useful responses! Ed, each "chunk" has its own LEP, and then there is a LEP for the entire document which lists each chapter chunk. Anyway, now I have more things to try, because I cheated and just hardcoded most of it.
