You can add any number of additional pages to your DOCX template. They will be included in your published DOCX documents together with the content from your project. You can customize these pages automatically on publishing by including Help+Manual's global variables and your own user-defined variables anywhere in the template.
You can add additional pages and content anywhere in the template by creating pages in Word, just as you would for any normal Word document. Just don't add additional content to the special Topics Source section.
Where your additional pages will be inserted in the output
The pages that come after the Topics Source section will come after all the topics in your project. The pages that come before the Topics Source section will come before all the topics in your project.
You can use Help+Manual variables anywhere in DOCX templates. They will be resolved to their current values when you publish your project to DOCX with the template.
You must enter variables as Word fields
Unlike PDF templates, you cannot just type the variable name directly into the text of your content in a DOCX template. You must enter Help+Manual variables in Word fields. See Creating variable fields in Word for instructions.
Special DOCX template variables:
There are 11 special variables used in DOCX templates. They are all only used in the Topics Source section. These variables must also all be entered in Word comment fields, otherwise they will not work correctly.
•The <%CHAPTER_HEADING1%> ... <%CHAPTER_HEADING10%> variables
These are used for the chapter heading items in the Topic Source section. The table of contents item gets the chapter headings from the chapter heading items automatically. You don't need to add variables for this to the table of contents item.
•The <%TOPIC_TEXT%> variable
This is used in the Topics Source section as the placeholder that inserts the content from your project topics into the template to generate the finished DOCX file. It must be entered in a comment filed.
All these items are normal Word components. Set them up as you would in a normal Word document. Enter Help+Manual variables anywhere you like, using Word comment fields to contain the variables.
Use Word's page number variables, not Help+Manual's!
