Using Styles and Markers for Expand/Collapse Sections

To use expand/collapse sections, you need the paragraph styles you want to start these sections, and you need the DropDownEnd marker in your source documents. Decide which paragraph styles should provide the link and start an expand/collapse section. For example, you could make Heading 4, Procedure Title, and Bullet Expand paragraph styles start expand/collapse sections.

To enable expand/collapse sections in your Stationery

  1. Open your Stationery design project.

  2. On the View menu, click Style Designer.

  3. On the Project menu, click a target in the Active Target menu option that is an output format that supports this option.

  4. In Paragraph Styles, select the paragraph style you want to define as the link for the start of an expand/collapse section.

  5. On the Options tab, set Dropdown to Start open or Start closed, based on whether you want the expand/collapse section to be displayed or hidden by default.

  6. Repeat steps 3-4 for each paragraph style you want to start expand/collapse sections.

When writers use these styles, they can identify the end of each expand/collapse section with the DropDownEnd marker. All other paragraph styles should have the Dropdown option set to Continue to be included in the expand/collapse sections as needed.
