Ken, If the Archiver is the one Adobe posted at: http://blogs.adobe.com/techcomm/2011/07/create-a-book-packager-using-extendscript.html There is a problem where a files are duplicated in the Insets folder and then a second Insets folder is created within that folder. The xrefs then resolve to the files in that folder. The solution is to redirect the xrefs to the files at the root footer of the archive (as described below). If editing takes place in the interim, you can have a frightful mess, I'd guess.
Here's a comment and the response I posted on that http:// page regarding the problem: ====== SNIP ==== By Serge Menard - 11:23 PM on July 26, 2012 Hi, thanks for this excellent script. A great time saver. However I should report that it copies the referenced insets twice: in the user specified archive directory then in the Insets sub-directory. Can this be corrected easily? Thanks again. By craig...@hotmail.com - 5:35 PM on January 17, 2013 It does more than that (and this is also a problem). It also (at least at times), puts copies of files in a book into the Insets folder and then uses those as the targets for cross references. I had to delete these files, make mifs of the affected files in the main directory and do a find/replace in the mifs: find: <XRefSrcFile `Insets replace: <XRefSrcFile ` Maybe a function to do this can be added to the script to fix this problem. ===== UNSNIP ===== Craig Date: Fri, 30 Jan 2015 13:55:25 -0800 From: poshe...@bellsouth.net Subject: Broken x-refs after archiving To: email@example.com Conditions: · FrameMaker 11.0 on Windows 7 platforms with Archive script downloaded and installed. · FrameMaker source files located, completed and archived on network drive. · FrameMaker book opened and member files highlighted but not opened (according to the instructions that accompanied the archive script). · Then File --> Utilities --> Archive · A spot-check of various x-refs in the FrameMaker files in the archive folder for the book show some but not all broken x-refs. · The x-refs in the original FrameMaker book files remain OK and intact. · There doesn't seem to be any pattern, except that the broken x-refs occur ONLY in the archived FrameMaker files. NOTE: One of our other department writers just performed an archive test where the book and member files were located on and also archived onto her hard drive and the problem persists. Is there only one archive plug-in/script out there (that is, the one we use), or is there another one -- even for a fee? -- Ken in Atlanta _______________________________________________ You are currently subscribed to framers as craig...@hotmail.com.
