Hi,

 

can anyone tell me how to added the prefix or suffix to the keynote?

I have the option in the object info but can't find where to set the prefix/suffix.

 

Thanks

YES! Thanks I spent hours to find it😩

Ok I have found the prefix and used it but now I have found this out, when I use the prefix for different keynote legend on an separated sheet as the keynotes and I change a note in the legend it will delete the prefix from my keynote and I have to go back to all sheets where I have used the note and add the prefix again. For example my keynote had the no. 5 and the prefix 1. (1.5) it will change all keynote no. to 5 when I change the keynote.

@Jens Marr

 

You can create a database header in a worksheet that will pull in all of your callouts. From there you can add columns for the Prefix ('Callout'.'Keynote Prefix')  and Suffix ('Callout'.'Keynote Suffix') and adjust them from one centralized location. You can re-add or adjust the keynote prefix as you need.

 

The tricky one is how to return the ID#. Thanks to @Pat Stanford, he put me on to the field ('Callout'.'__KeynoteNumber') to pull that in. Note you cannot change the number of a callout from the worksheet, that has to be done in the associated Keynote Legend by re-ordering the callouts.

I don't disagree, but we have found that worksheets have been profoundly beneficial for other reasons too. They allow you to control massive amounts of data in one location and can be turned into legends and other reporting tools if need be.
