Can One-Pulse mode only be set for CH1 and CH2?

In STM32F4's HAL code for function "HAL_TIM_OnePulse_Start":



* @brief Starts the TIM One Pulse signal generation.
* @param htim pointer to a TIM_HandleTypeDef structure that contains
* the configuration information for TIM module.
* @param OutputChannel TIM Channels to be enabled.
* This parameter can be one of the following values:
* @arg TIM_CHANNEL_1: TIM Channel 1 selected
* @arg TIM_CHANNEL_2: TIM Channel 2 selected
* @retval HAL status
HAL_StatusTypeDef HAL_TIM_OnePulse_Start(TIM_HandleTypeDef *htim, uint32_t OutputChannel)
/* Prevent unused argument(s) compilation warning */

/* Enable the Capture compare and the Input Capture channels
(in the OPM Mode the two possible channels that can be used are TIM_CHANNEL_1 and TIM_CHANNEL_2)
if TIM_CHANNEL_1 is used as output, the TIM_CHANNEL_2 will be used as input and
if TIM_CHANNEL_1 is used as input, the TIM_CHANNEL_2 will be used as output
in all combinations, the TIM_CHANNEL_1 and TIM_CHANNEL_2 should be enabled together
No need to enable the counter, it's enabled automatically by hardware
(the counter starts in response to a stimulus and generate a pulse */
TIM_CCxChannelCmd(htim->Instance, TIM_CHANNEL_1, TIM_CCx_ENABLE);
TIM_CCxChannelCmd(htim->Instance, TIM_CHANNEL_2, TIM_CCx_ENABLE);
/* Enable the main output */
/* Return function status */
return HAL_OK;


It seems only CH1 and CH2 is used, does this mean only CH1 or CH2 can be used in one-pulse mode?
