Changing levels with collections

I know that in the text body of a document, I can insert custom metadata like this:


Is there anyway to do this in the section layout where I can do things like:

Chapter <$t>


I tried just adding the $Custom stuff so that the Prefix section looks like this:

Chapter <$t>


But the $Custom data does not print, I only get the Chapter entry. If I use exactly the same syntax in the body of the document, it works as expected.



That should be working just fine, several of my projects depend upon that very capability. Have you added it it to the wrong type though? For example if only text files have this custom field set to anything, and you add the <$custom:mydate> code as a prefix to how folders print their titles, then none of the text files will have that prefix.

That was it, Amber. Thanks!
