I've never played with hyperlinks and tagged text, but i would guess that the anchors are the hyperlink anchor names correspond to the anchor names defined in the document.
The problem is that there does not appear to be any way to create the anchors in a tagged text file. I can create the cross-ref tag, no problem, but since I can't create the anchors there is no way to actually make the lonks work ... anybody know how to create the anchors?
BEfore exporting the tagged text.
1. You have to create the Intereactive->New Hyperlink Destination [Figure 1.1].
2. Create a Intereactive->New Hyperlink [See Figure 1.1] in this select the dest as [Figure 1.1]
3. Then export as tagged text.
Where are the figures that you refer to?
Did you ever get a solution to your original idea of being able to build the Cross-Referencing within you DB and export tagged text that includes them?
I am wanting to do exactly the same thing and am not having much luck finding any info on the net.
Yes, we developed a script to do it. Basically the way it works is that you
add twp tags to your tagged text file: one for the cross-ref text and one
attached to the object to link it to. After importing the text file into the
Indy document you run the script - this matches up the tags and creates the
cross-reference. Works great. We're selling this script for £35. I'm just
writing up some documentation for it and putting a demo together - I'll let
you know when that is available (might not be until after the weekedn) or if
you need it urgently let me know and I'll send you the demo and some brief
notes to explain how it works.
That sounds great ... can you let me know when its ready.
