My team uses a relatively new set of templates that we developed ourselves. Since we are applying theses templates to a fairly complex set of documents, we sometimes need to update the templates for situations that may arise. This means that we may have to modify existing tags, master pages, (etc.) and reapply them to our documents. As a result, the writers on my team very rarely need to use overrides to do what they want in their documents. If a writer needs to format something that the template can't handle, we talk about it, and make a decision whether to change the template. If we do change the template, we inform the whole team on how to use the new styles.

I'm now working with a writer who is much more liberal about overrides than I am. We currently work only on unstructured Frame documents; output is PDF (to print from or for use onscreen). Right now, we're the only two writers working on the doc set in question. Have any of you been on either side of such a difference in approach, and how did you go about resolving it? Thanks. -- Milan Davidovic http://altmilan.blogspot.com _______________________________________________ You are currently subscribed to Framers as jharvey at cambridgesoft.com.
