You can use variables not only in a topic content but also in TOC node text and topic titles. Here is how you can do this.

Topic Title 

  • First of all, you should create a variable. To learn more, refer to this topic: Variables.

    <ch:var name="productName" />

  • Open the nessesary topic and click the Rename button to rename it.

  • Insert the variable using the syntax above.

  • Click Save Changes.
