I would like to place a hard-code value in the header, which differ on every page. Is this possible?
This is already a work-around. What I would like is a chaptername Heading in the header. But this chaptername must be without numbering.
I am writing a book with stylesheet and a masterdocument. With help of this form I am quite far. The main content is ready and also the appendix. I would like to make a clear distinction between the content-text and appendix. With help of this forum I use a different page style, with headers and footers in Italic. The main content exist of numbered chapters, with on the left page the name of “Heading 1” name and on the right page the number and name of the “Heading 2”.
In the appendix, to make a clear distinction, I do not want numbering. So I copied “Heading 2” to “Heading 2 appendix” and removed the outline. This does work, but at the same time I can not refer anymore “Heading 2 appendix” content name for the header. So it has no use.
I have already a separate pagestyle for the appendix, so I am free to alter that, without influencing the main content.
Keeping “Heading 2” would give me the desired Header for the right page, because I can choose just the chaptername, without the numbering. So the Header is fine. But then my “Heading 2” will have a number, which I want to avoid.
So I can choose between a desired Heading style for my paragraph, without a number, but then my header is not available to me. Or I choose the right header, but than the paragraph style will have a number, which I do not want.
I tried a multiple work-around. First just hardcoded typing. This does work for the first page of the appendix-item, but the next appendix-item will have the same name. I thought using “Hidden paragraph” for “Heading 2” but doing so the name-label of the paragraph is hidden, not the number. I tried a field, but the same. I looked to the similarity of page numbers. The field stays the same on each page, but the content, the actual page number, differs. So I tried a field input list. I am able to select one of the list-items, but this item is placed on all the pages.
If a solution is possible with stylesheets it has my preference. But an other work-around I do not mind.
