Craig - Thanks so much for the info. I'll check it out. The problem of FrameMaker's not faithfully reading the "rules" file, wherever it is, looks like a deal breaker that, I'm sorry to say, gives me pause about continuing using FrameMaker. There's just so much "pressure" to use other XML editor computer programs . . .. Regards, Dave Stamm Information Engineer General Dynamics C4 Systems, Inc.

When editing the maker.ini file it is a good idea to make a copy in the same location. I name the copy maker.ini.ORIG, so I can use that to get back to the original settings if they are needed. This use of two structapps (local and global) files started with FM10. There's a discussion about the use of a network drive for common structure files in one of the Adobe webinars. http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/event/index.cfm?event=set_registered&id=224 3297&loc=en_us The relevant comments begin about 11:15 into the webinar. The one you edit by using you choose Structure Tools > Edit Application Definitions is the local one. When you edit that file, save it and then do a Read Application Definitions (to allow your application to use the new definitions) everything is okay and you can use your new application. However... The global file is not affected by these edits. Next time you start FM and it reads from the global file, your new application definition will not be there. You have to copy the application definition in your local file into the global file. Your problem with RW file not being seen may simply be a result of that. The discussion of the structure app file is at about 18:00 in the webinar. Craig ----- snipped ----- With Fm11, there are now 2 copies of the maker.ini (userdata directory and install directory) and 2 copies of the structapps file (local and global, both available from the Structure menu in Fm11), and I'm betting you're getting snarled in the combinations of these files.
