Hi Framers, thanks for all the help you’ve given me so far.
Naturally, I’ve got some more structured Frame questions.
To recap: I’m creating a structured book so that I can create one ebook
out of two fiction novellas. I am aware that it’s possible to do this in
an unstructured world, but I’m not.
In order to get the two novellas to display the correct title of the
story (novella) on the master page, I understand I’ll need separate
Let’s say my EDD begins:
Element (Container): FrameBook
Valid as the highest-level element.
To create the child-book, I will need
Element (Container): VolumeBook
Element (Container): Chapter
Element (Container): Section
As the chapter files are separate files, does the outside container
(FrameBook) exist in the chapter files, or, do I list both VolumeBook
and Chapter as "Valid as the highest-level element"?
In FrameBook, there will also be Front Matter and Back Matter. Can I use
the Section element here or should I create a new element called
One of the novellas has a Prologue. This behaves in most ways like a
chapter except that no number is displayed and its leading caption
(title) is different, i.e. Prologue, Chapter 1, Chapter 2. In
unstructured Frame, I cheated and took a bad shortcut. I copied the
master page and took out the autonumber paratag so that "Chapter"
doesn’t show up on the printed page. However, the TOC is not working
right, so this is not a good solution.
--Do I use paratag "Chapter" for the prologue and then Format > Document
> Numbering to reset the second instance of Chapter to be =1 ?
--Do I remove the word "Chapter" from the master page? How then do I get
the word "Chapter" to show up on all printed chapters except the
Prologue (including the TOC)?
--Do I have one element or two in the EDD?
Hard to believe but I am progressing.
Thanks for your advice,
