How to embed text from a passage that is from another section?

Hi, I see in the wiki you can embed text from another passage with {curly brackets}, but I was wondering if there's a way to fetch a particular passage from another section?

Here's an example (that doesn't work) to give you an idea of what I was trying to do:

[[section1]]:
Here is some text from the next section: {section2}

Here is some text from a passage in this section: {passage}

[passage]:
This is a passage in section1.

[[section2]]:
section2 main text

[passage]:
This is a passage in section2.

The reason I want this is for a codex system where a player can click a keyword that might come around regularly (like the name of a place, for example) and that will display its codex entry, without me having to create a passage with the same text in every section where that word might appear.

Thanks in advance, and happy writing!


Hello.

That example works for me. (I just tested it in the Squiffy Scratchpad and in the Linux version.)


That's because I haven't found a way to fetch the text from "section 2", "passage".

When I do I'd like the second line of the output to read "This is a passage in section2." instead of "section2 main text"


Hrmm...

It doesn't look like we can pull from passages from outside of the current section.

You can embed text from another section, or from a passage in the current section, by surrounding its name with curly brackets.

BUT...

This seems like it might work, if you're just wanting to declare string variables:

[[section1]]:
@set text1=This is the text from text1.
@set text2=This is the text from text2.
Here is some text from the next section: {section2}

Here is text1: {text1}

[passage]:
This is a passage in section1.

[[section2]]

[[section2]]:
section2 main text


Here is text2: {text2}

Yes, that should work, I'll just set all codex entries as variables at the start of the game.
Thanks a lot!
