Customised navtitles

Sat Jan 11, 2014 12:45 am

This is a newbie question:

In the root map, I can use a topic head, add a map reference to it that has topic references with customised navtitles (and locktitle set to yes) and generate the Webhelp - Mobile output that shows the customised titles.

However, in the root map, when I try to add a topic reference, append a map reference (with customised navtitles for topic references) as a child, the generated Webhelp - Mobile output shows the document titles, not the customised ones.

Am I doing something wrong or is it just not possible?

If you set a navtitle on a topicref element then that customized title should be displayed on the navigation buttons in Webhelp-Mobile (the buttons that change the content in the browser by navigating to the topic linked to the button). But if no navtitle element customizes the title in the topic file itself then the original title of the topic itself is displayed when the button is clicked and the content of that topic becomes the current topic displayed in the browser.

Can you post a small sample please, for understanding exactly your situation and for reproducing the error, or send us a sample DITA map together with all included topics and sub-maps?
