Display variable assignments for the library


Variables act as placeholders for changeable data. The default value of a variable can be replaced in an object. It is useful to see which objects have been assigned new variable values.

To display variable assignments for the library:

  1. In the main window choose the File > Manage Variables. The Variables window opens and displays the list of variables available in the library.
  2. Choose the variable you want to view the assignments for, then right-click and choose Assignments. The Variable Assignments window opens and displays the objects where a new value has been assigned.

    Variable Assignments

    Note: When a variable is assigned to a Book object, and that Book object is then used as a sub book (a Book within a Book) the variable assignments are ignored and only those applied at the Topic level or to the Master Book will be resolved during publishing.
