I wonder if this might be the one situation where a "B" flow would be

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.

Subject: student/tutor page layout

Hi Folks

One of our trainers has asked me to help with a layout question for a 
new training manual.  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
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.
