Inserting special variables

You can insert special variables only into headers and footers for PDF output (Options -> Project settings -> PDF export -> Setup).
To add a special variable to a header or footer, click the arrow button next to the Variable button, select the Special variable menu and choose the corresponding option there:
The following special variables are pre-configured:
  • page title;
  • page topic;
  • page status;
  • help ID;
  • alias;
  • keywords;
  • page number;
  • total pages.
When you insert a special variable, Dr.Explain automatically obtains the values for the variable from the project settings and topic properties and inserts them in the specified location (into header and/or footer) when generating a PDF file.
