Editing Text for Context-Sensitive Cross-References

You can use language skins to localize the text used in your cross-references. In addition, even if you plan to create output in only one language, you can use a language skin to change the autotext that is displayed for context-sensitive cross-references. For example, instead of the text displaying "on next page," it can be customized to display "on the following page." See Creating Context-Sensitive Cross-References.

Flare provides skins for many different languages (see Translation and Localization). If Flare does not provide a skin for a language that you would like to use, or if you want to edit the default translation, you can create a user-defined language skin.

How to Edit Text for Context-Sensitive Cross-References

  1. Open the Project Organizer.
  2. Double-click the Advanced folder.
  3. Double-click a language skin to open it.
  4. From the list, select a language in bold or italic font.
  5. On the right side of the editor, select Print and Online.

  6. If necessary, on the left side of the editor, expand the Print and Online group.
  7. Scroll down to the Formats rows and locate the cross-reference properties. These are the translations you will want to edit.
  8. Double-click in any of the Value fields and change the text as necessary.

    Note The Value fields not only contain text, but they also contain format commands in brackets—for example, {paratext} and {page}. For a list of commands that you can use, see Editing Cross-Reference Style Formats.

  9. Click to save your work.
