Creating Custom Marker Types Using the WebWorks Transit Menu in Word

Typically your Stationery designer will provide the list of markers, which are a type of private or custom Microsoft Word field codes, that you can use in Microsoft Word source documents to create online features. In most cases, you should not need to create a custom marker type for use in Microsoft Word source documents. However, if you need to create a custom marker type to implement an online feature, verify with the Stationery designer that your Stationery supports the custom marker type before you create the custom marker and insert and use the custom marker in a source document.

Occasionally your Stationery may also support a custom marker type that is not defined in the WebWorks Transit menu for Microsoft Word. In this situation, first confirm with the Stationery designer that your Stationery supports the custom marker type. After confirming your project supports the custom marker type, you can create the custom marker type using the WebWorks Transit menu for Word.

To create a custom marker type using the WebWorks Transit menu for Word

  1. In your Microsoft Word source document, on the WebWorks menu, click Markers.

  2. Click the plus (+) icon.

  3. In the Type field, type CustomMarkerTypeName to create a custom marker type, where CustomMarkerTypeName is the name of the custom marker type you want to create.

Note: The custom marker type name you type must match the name of the custom marker type supported in your ePublisher Stationery. If you specify a name for the custom marker type that is different than the name of the custom marker type supported in your ePublisher Stationery, ePublisher will not be able to recognize and use the custom marker type when generating output.

  1. Click OK.

  2. Click OK again to close the window.

The WebWorks Transit menu for Word saves the custom marker you specified in the marker list and inserts the marker in your Microsoft Word source document.
