I'm new to RoboInfo X5 and I'm finding that I'm using this
software for a different reason than most people. I'm using this
for an online deployment of ISO documents.
I need to find a way to link the revision date of the
document to the index. For example - I have document A (this is the
procedure) with a revision date on it. And I also have document B
(this is the index that holds info about all the documents in the
system). I want the field on doc A to populate a same named field
on document B. Not sure if this software is even capable of this
but I figured this would be the place to ask.
If I understand, you would like a date field in Document B to
dynamically change whenever the date might change in Document A.
In this version of RoboHelp(Info) there is no such feature at
this time. There are a couple a things that come close. For example
you can Insert > Field > Title (which should really be named
Heading). If you do, and you go to Topic Properties and change the
Title of the topic, the Heading of your topic will dynamically
update. Similar possibilities exist for date and time stamping.
Unfortunately these don't cover exactly what you want.
