I'm trying to create a personal book that uses VolumePageLine milestones. I can do VolumePage milestones using the syntax [[@vp:1,1]] and link to them as [[Vol 1, Page 1 >> vp:1,1]]. That works. However, VolumePageLine milestones using the syntax [[@vpl:1,1,1]] do not seem to work. Do I need to use something other than a comma to delimit the line number?
- Unfortunately, while the milestone syntax is clearly right, the corresponding link syntax does not appear to work. I see the display text only, but it is not a link.
- I see the same and couldn't get a working syntax for the links that would directly apply. But a workaround will work: if you build the PB with milestones, you can use the "Copy Location As"-feature to get URLs or L4 links that both work as link targets - as long as only you use the PB (i.e. you use resource links rather than reference links, and PB resources are unique to the user). They look like https://ref.ly/logosres/pbb:c9b25f7b847845b89c8815c526a1831e?ref=VolumePageLine.V+1%2c+P+1%2c+L+2 and logosres:pbb:c9b25f7b847845b89c8815c526a1831e;ref=VolumePageLine.V_1,_P_2,_L_1 (but I couldn't get a working ref-link syntax to work)
- Thanks Mick. You are very helpful. I was hoping to share this PB with my church, and there would be lots of such links. I guess that Logos intended the links to work, so this might count as a bug. Is there any way of asking for a fix? For now, I am using your workaround. I'll just have to inform people how to do a global replacement of my PBB id for theirs when I share it. May I ask a related question please? I know that I can add ";off=20" for example, to give the link an offset in characters from the milestone, to point to the start of a sentence for example. Is there any way of defining the end of the cross-reference, say by adding ";len=40" or something like that, so that when one hovers the link, the popup would only show that number of characters? At the moment, the popup contains everything until the next milestone, or about 840 characters, whichever is less, but that is sometimes more than I want.
