Xref to lower-level heading in a topic

Postby bwait on Tue Oct 02, 2018 4:10 pm

I'd like to create an xref format that includes the title of the target heading, not necessarily the first instance of that heading.
Flare generates a bookmark for the selected heading. But the text is always the first instance of that heading, from what I can tell.

For example, suppose I have a single topic that contains two H2s. I think the default format of {h2} pulls in the *first instance* of the H2 as Xref text. But, what if the xref points to the second H2? How can I get the Xref to pull in the second H2 title instead?

Hypertext links seem to work well for this model, but I m trying to use XRefs for better PDF output.

What if you add a bookmark in the second heading, and include that in the xref?
