When using Flare, it is very important to fully take advantage of the advantages of Flare instead of using it as just another word processor. An important example of this is the use of variables.
A variable is a little bit of information, that frequently occurs in your document. Take for example your company’s phone number. Variables can also be useful in the early stages of your writing process when your terminology or features can change as the development process evolves.
First, you will have to create a variable:
You have made a variable or variable set.
But making a variable doesn’t mean that you have implemented them in your document. You have to replace the text that you made a variable for to that specific variable.
To replace text with your own created variables:
Variables might be an easy way for automating your writing process, but be aware that you are replacing text by implementing one fixed element that can only be changed by changing your variable. This means that - no matter how your text is used in grammar or syntax - your variable will always stay the same.
This could cause a lot of trouble in the grammar of your document. Or even worse: when translating your document. So be aware when using variables and replacing your text with them.
