Including Configuration Variables in the Border Comment

You can include a configuration variable reference in the text of the Border Comment property. For example, if the configuration variable USER was defined as "John Smith" and you defined the border comment as "User=${USER}," the printed output would expand the configuration variable so that the text "User=John Smith" appears in the label outside the print boundary. Note that in this case, braces "{ }" are required around the configuration variable.

Comment strings are limited to 255 characters, so care should be used when defining the Border Comment property. There is a chance that a long expansion may be truncated, particularly with the smaller sheet sizes.
