Hi! I noticed a new section in the ini file from the last time I updated FM 2019. I would love to use it to include a revision history page in my generated books. Is there any guidance on how to do so?

Thanks!

For reference:

[BookWithFM-FrontMatter]
Template=RevisionHistoryTpl.fm < - I ADDED THIS TEMPLATE FILE

ChapterNumbering=Restart
;ChapterNumberingFirst=Restart|Continue|ReadFromFile|UseSame
ChapterNumberingValue=1

This section is for users who are using bookmap and have added some topics as reference as part of frontmatter or backmatter. Earlier when PDF was being generated any topicrefs part of frontmatter/backmatter were not included. The option was to add them as normal topics and then include. With this new functionality these get added and have seperate templates for you to configure them. So revision history could be one such topic in frontmatter and you could apply a new template for the same.

Thanks

Thank you Amitoj! I hadn't come across bookmaps before, but I see the section in the user guide now and it looks like they'll be really helpful.
