    TOPLEAF: Cannot get Glossary title to display on the page

    We want to start including a glossary in individual guides, and I'm experimenting with the stylesheet updates to allow for this.

    The glossaries are added to the backmatter of the book map file:

     


     
     




     

    The glossary itself is a multi-entry glossary topic:


      Glossary
     
    Item 1
    Definition 1
     

     
    Item 2
    Definition 2.
     

    I've updated the glossarylist tag to set up the bookmark for the glossary (using the L-Glossary variable), and added the glossentry, glossterm, and glossdef tags. I've also added a %GlossaryTitle custom tag, and also tried adding a glossarylist//title tag.

    When I generate the PDF, the Glossary bookmark displays, and links to the page with the glossary terms, but I can't get the Glossary title to display on the PDF page or in the TOC.

    I know I must be missing something simple. Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Janice

    My guess is that you have a higher-precedence mapping that is preventing the glossarylist//title mapping from being called. The debug output should tell you what's going on.

    I was able to get it to work shortly after I made the original post by removing the additional topicref and having the glossary file be a direct href property of the glossarylist element.

    Couldn't reply before now because of the annoying/bogus “the last post was less than 120 seconds ago” error.

    Thanks,

    Janice
