    Applying User Defined Variables across project

    suzieshell
      Hello,

      I'm working with the User Defined Variables feature and can't seem to figure out how to apply a variable/value across all topics. I may have misunderstood the definition of what this is supposed to do, so it may be user error. It is my understanding that if you have information that use repeatedly, for instance if I refer to a product name in numerous topics and the product name changes, I can set up a user defined variable and set this to update all the occurrences. I can change it going in each topic and each sentence where the occurence is by right-clicking the word and selecting Insert User Defined Variable. Any ideas as to what I can do to make a global update. Also, I'm reading the help, but still seem to be missing something.

      Thanks,
      Michele
