Book lists

If you are using a change pages page management model or the partition page management model is not specified, then your partition can use a book list to reference content sourced from multiple document files. A book list is a text file where each line contains the path to a file containing content. When the partition is composed each file is read in the order it occurs in the book list.

To create a book list use Commands » Add Files to Partition....

The book list can be edited by using Commands » Edit Partition Document List....

If a book list name entry declares a simple filename (i.e. the entry does not specify an absolute file path) then the entry identifies a document held within the partition source document folder.

If a book list name entry declares an absolute file path then the entry identifies a document held externally to the partition source document folder.

[Note] Note

When working with XML content, it may be preferable to use file entities to reference multiple source documents from a single top level document. If you are working with DITA content, then you can use a bookmap to organise content referenced from multiple source documents.
