Fields showing full text content?

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

 

I am new to using fields, and I am having an issue.

 

 

I wish to link two mtexts, so when the first is edited, the second updates to display the same text, similar to the =CELL function in excel.

 

 

I use Field>Object>no format, yet it displays to complete contents, including font etc. How can I get the second text to simply display what is in the first text.

 

 

I have attached a screenshot of my issue.

 

 

Any suggestions gratefully received.

 

 

Thanks

In the field dialogue, once you have selected the text object, you need to select "contents" from the properties

I have done this, I have attached another screenshot to further show my issue.

 

 

Note in the preview box it displays all information, opposed to the original text as demonstrated in your example.

 

 

Any idea?
