I've built out a template for my group that includes a page of copyright boilerplate, which is in a file on one of the corporate servers. This works wonderfully: If legal decides to drop or assert a new copyright claim, I can update the central file, and the update is made immediately to all documents with no writer input required. Love it, love it, love it.
The problem is that one of the writers is a telecommuter with limited long-distance dialup access. When she opens a page, if the network isn't working, she can't do much for a minute while Frame figures out it can't find the page. Possible solutions I'd like to get feedback on: Is there a default timeout setting in maker.ini or elsewhere I could change to lower this search to a tolerable delay? Or is there a way to persuade FrameMaker to look for the network and display an alternate local file if it can't find the include text it's looking for? Or perhaps you have solved this problem in a manner I haven't thought of...If so, do tell... Thanks in advance, --William
