Pinned topic Linked modules - printing subsequent content

‏2013-08-29T16:42:53Z |

I have a template set up so that when RPE finds that module1 is linked to module4, RPE goes to module4 and prints the text from the linked row in the document. Sometimes, the links are to figure or table titles, but not the actual figure or table. Is there a condition I can use to tell RPE that when the text in module4 is a table title or figure title to also print the subsequent table or figure? Or, is the simple answer that they need to link to the table/figure?

    I do it a different way by only having 1 object for a figure or table and by splitting the different types of information - i.e.: by putting the figure or table itself in Object Text and its caption in a separate attribute (funnily enough called 'Caption'). That way you only require 1 link to the object you want to print. Putting the caption in a separate attribute also makes it a bit easier and clearer IMHO in the RPE template where you say which attributes go where for that object (Object Text is the picture and Caption comes above or below it with a separate style for figures, for example).

      The answer is -- link all necessary modules.

        That's one answer. Linking is probably the most irritating RM activity but linking between objects in 1 module will get pretty tiresome pretty quickly. Not to mention checking the links for accuracy. See how it goes but keep a reserve solution in your pocket.
