I saw this expression in a template in an article "Multi pose proof sheets" on the TS Knowledge Base. It is used in a ".PST". I have tried to use it in a ".PIT" but do not get same result. It only returns one imagetag. If I insert it exactly as it is above the results printed are - "[filename,| ]". If I leave the brackets off, the results are "filename,". Why do I not get the same results as in the example. I have tried the ".PST" and ".PIT" as it is on the TS website and the same results are the same as on the website.

    The expression you refer to is a "repeatable text" expression. It is used to list text. Everything inside the square brackets is repeated. Everything to the left of the vertical bar is replaceable text.

    So for the example [@imagefilename|,] it will list the filenames on the page separated by a comma.

    Therefore it doesn't make sense to use this on a pit since a pit is a single image object. It is used on the pst template because that is the item sheet background which can hold multiple images.

    I'm not sure from your last sentence "I have tried the ".PST" and ".PIT" as it is on the TS website and the same results are the same as on the website." whether it is working for you or not when you use the templates as is.

    Note you can also make the list go down the page by enclosing a carriage return inside the square bracket. That means the carriage return is repeated as well.

    The concepts above are also used elsewhere in the software. Have a look at the KB articles "unfeatured list" and "conditional text".

    Let me know if you have any further questions or if you can't get it to work.

    The template from teh TS website worked as it was supposed to work. I understand what you are saying that it about not using the expression on a .pit since the .pit is based on one image rather than several. I will check the articles you mentioned from the KB on "unfeatured list" and "conditional text".
    Thank you for your assistance.
