Madcap Flare – Cross References

Cross references are the preferred type of navigation link to be used when generating Word output, since they are the only type that is converted to a useful format.

To change the language that precedes a cross-reference in printed output

  1. Open styles.css in the Stylesheet Editor.
  2. Scroll down to and select the xref style.
  3. Buried in the most unobvious location is a feature to change the language. Click in the second cell of the mc-format row. The Cross-Reference Format dialog magically appears. Who would have thunk it?
  4. In the white text box below the Enter format {preview below} box, replace “See” with something more friendly to the Word reader, like:

See on page {para}

The {para} string will automatically be converted to the appropriate page number upon generation.
