Is there a way, using the footer tag, to give a unique number assignment to every passage?
I have so many passages now my testers and I are having trouble communicating which passage everyone is talking about.
I thought I'd use a footer to give each passage a number but I can't figure out how to give the same number to each passage every time and also increase the number automatically for each passage.
Is there a way to do this?
Harlowe allows an Author to access the name of the current passage being shown via the name property of the dataset returned by the (passage: ) macro ... so you could use that within a footer tagged passage.
Ideally for testing purposes you would want to use a debug-header or debug-footer tagged passage, as these only appear when using Twine 2's Test option.
Although after a quick look at the Harlowe source code I was not able to see a way to have these appear when viewing a story HTML file, so if that is the case then your testers would need import your story HTML into an instance of Twine 2 to be able to use the Test option themselves.
