Custom tags in page footer


I have a document that uses various meta data, like OrigTitle. When I use these in custom tags like this:


… it works perfectly. Except when I use it for a header or footer in the page settings in the compile menu. Here tags like <$Draftname> will work nicely, but custom tags seems not to work.

Any help on this?


Headers and footers know nothing of individual documents because they are global, so you can’t use document tags in them, only the global tags.
All the best,

Oh. Okay. Thanks!

And meta data is always tied to individual docs because it can be changed for each doc?
For that you would use the replacements function in the compile menu?
