LDC #144: Using Legato to Create Hidden Text in a Document


I was discussing inline XBRL with a client the other day when a thought occurred to me. GoFiler uses XDX to mark information in a document to convert it to inline XBRL at a later time, which is generally great, but it means if you have a line item on a table that doesn’t actually have a label (like a total line, for example), then GoFiler is just going to pick the standard label for that element. That’s not a bad thing, in and of itself, but if you want to customize the label, there needs to be some text on the line item for XDX to pick up.
