MultiExcerpt Include loses ConversionContext properties, causing included Scroll Ignore macro (from K15) to be ignored


  • Create page and add a MultiExcerpt macro (from Artemis Software) with content

  • Place a Scroll Ignore macro (from K15) inside the MultiExcerpt macro and add content to the body of the Scroll Ignore.

  • This content should not be exported when a page containing the included Multiexcerpt is exported Scroll PDF Exporter.
    *PDF export of this page works as expected (Scroll Ignore is honored).

  • Create a second page and add MultiExcerpt Include macro (from Artemis Software) which references the MultiExcerpt macro on page one.

  • Export the second page

    • Scroll PDF Exporter comes with default templates that you can use straight out of the box.

    • To export, open a page and click ... and click Export to PDF.

    • Select a template, define the export scope and click Export.

Expected result:
Content within Scroll Ignore macro is not included in the export

Actual result:
Content within Scroll Ignore macro is included in the export

The original fix does not work with the MultiExcerpt cache enabled. It works with the cache disabled.

Working on a fix for cache enabled/disabled.

When this is release we need to contact K15 to let them know they can close their bug: "Improve compatibility of Multiexcerpt macro with Scroll Macros"
