Sharing Import File Across Projects?

Postby claypool on Thu Sep 12, 2019 1:20 pm

Hi All -

We are converting our entire documentation set from Frame to Flare. Is there a way to create an import file that contains all the style mappings that are standard in our FrameMaker Manuals to the ones we will be using in our Flare project and some how attach it to our Master Project, or will each writer have to map each style manually for every imported manual? I've searched quite a bit, and it seems like there is a way, but I can't seem to put all the pieces together correctly.

Thank you in advance for any help!

Welcome to the forums.

If you create the import file that works and keep that in your master project then whenever you need a new import file use that as a basis and just edit it to change the source file.
