Defining Related Links for a Placeholder


While editing settings of a Related Links placeholder, on the Links Source tab, you can specify the source link set that the placeholder will use to generate the list of links in compiled documentation:

Links defined for the current topic - you can use this option for a placeholder which is contained in a common template which applies to different topics during the compilation process. Thus, in compiled documentation, the placeholder will generate a list of links by using the link set defined for each of the topics.

Links defined for this placeholder - you can use this option if you need a placeholder to generate a list of links by using the link set defined for the placeholder itself. In this case, you can click the Edit Links button to define the link set for it.
