Dave, I wonder if this might be the one situation where a "B" flow would be useful.
Since the student's book is already in FrameMaker, and since their content would probably change more often than the trainer's, this solution would require two books. Once the content for student's book is updated and approved, you would select all, copy, and paste into the B flow of the trainer's book. The trainer's guide template would be set up with the B flow on the left pages and A flow on the right. Just a thought.

His question is as follows: ************** The training department are going to produce facilitator's guides to accompany the course material we produce. These are going to list the extra info the tutor must know in order to run the course (eg key points to cover, equipment for practical exercises etc etc etc). The idea being anyone who reads the facilitator's guide should be able to run teach the course. The format we would like to use is to have the students notes appearing on the left page of the facilitator's guide and the right hand page being used to list all the extra info the tutor needs to know. That way the tutor can see what the students notes say but have another page of extra info. Is there an easy way to set up a template so we can import the students notes (already written in frame) so that each page (left and right) from the students notes will appear as the left page in the facilitators guide? ************** The only way I can think of is to add Disconnected Pages and then manually connect text frames on alternate pages, so that all left pages are in one flow, and all right pages are in another flow. I assume you could also keep page 1 in its own flow as a title page. Is there any other way of doing this in Frame? We are using Frame 6 on Windows 2000.
