Clarify parameter settings for rellinks

Sat Dec 06, 2014 12:01 am

When nothing is set, the word "none" appears when in reality the Default (rather than "none") is set.

The word "none" is the current value of the args.rellinks parameter, just like "no" is the current value of args.copycss. If you open the dialog box for editing the value of a parameter you will see "Default" only for such a parameter that can take a value only from a restricted short list of possible values. The "default" setting lets you know that the current value of the parameter in the current transformation scenario is the default one, which means it was not changed from the built-in value that comes with the built-in transformation. This is just a convention for the parameters with values from a short restricted list of possible values.

The important point is to be consistent for all such parameters, as you can see for example in the parameters args.artlbl, args.breadcrumbs, args.copycss, args.tablelink.style, clean.output, generate.copy.outer, etc.

I see that you have to deliberate between consistency and usability here. My comment was just pointing out a confusing part of the interface. Not a huge deal.

Hi,

We have an issue opened in our internal system for displaying the current value of the parameter even when it is the default one, not the word Default. We will probably display the parameter value in a future version instead of Default.
