Cutting, Copying, and Pasting Cross References
Arbortext Styler enables you to cut, copy, and paste cross reference objects through operations on the Edit menu, associated keyboard shortcuts, toolbar buttons, and the shortcut menu. You cannot cut or copy multiple cross references in a single operation.
The following procedure demonstrates how to copy and paste a cross reference object. Cutting and pasting is a similar operation, but the cut cross reference is removed from the Cross References list.
Copying and Pasting a Cross Reference Object
1. In Arbortext Editor, open your document and use the Styler menu to open a stylesheet.
2. In Arbortext Styler, select the Cross References tab to display the cross reference objects configured for the stylesheet.
3. Select the table you want to copy in the Cross References list.
4. Select Edit > Copy to copy the cross reference.
You can also use CTRL+C or the Copy toolbar button for this operation.
5. Select Edit > Paste to paste the cross reference.
You can also use CTRL+V or the Paste toolbar button for this operation.
Arbortext Styler pastes a copy of the cross reference into the Cross References list, after the currently selected cross reference. The name of the new cross reference is the original cross reference name with _copy_1 (or another number if more than one copy is made) appended. The new cross reference is highlighted for renaming.
6. Rename the cross reference, if desired.
For example, you might not need to rename the pasted cross reference if you are modifying the original cross reference and want to keep the copy to preserve the original state of the cross reference for reference.
Definitions are always pasted into the root module. If the copied cross reference was in a different module, or if it was cut instead of copied, then _copy_1 is not appended to the cross reference's name. If they are in different modules, multiple definitions can have the same name. However, definition names must be unique in each individual module.
