Another call for Bruce Foster's Archive. Best little FrameMaker add-on out there, at least one of the best, and only $20.
Install Archive. Open your book, Select File > Utilities > Archive. Archive spiders your network for all referenced files, whether they be graphics or text insets. If Frame can find it, archive captures it. Then it builds a copy of the source document in a folder of your choice with all cross-references to those referenced files working. Perfect for what you say below. I don't have his email address, but I am sure it will be provided by someone else. You might be able to Google for it. -----Original Message----- From: framers-boun...@lists.frameusers.com [mailto:framers-bounces at lists.frameusers.com] On Behalf Of Eisenloeffel, Martin Sent: Tuesday, March 17, 2009 11:48 AM To: framers at lists.frameusers.com Subject: Re-referencing Frame Maker Graphics Hello everyone, I have a situation wherein I have a number of documents whose referenced graphics are peppered across multiple folders on a network. There's a lot of redundancy among the graphics and many unused graphics as well. What I'd like to do is consolidate all the used graphics into a single folder per document and re-reference them into their respective documents. Currently, the best thing I can think of is to break all the links by moving the graphics where I want them and then updating the graphics to the right place manually when I open any given file. The trouble is, I'm looking at multiple hundreds of graphics in total, making it an onerous task. So, my question for the group is two-prong: 1. Can anyone offer a better solution? 2. If I go with what I think is the best solution, is there a way to get Frame to parse out a list of all used graphics in a given file so I know what I'm moving? Thanks for any help! _______________________________________________ You are currently subscribed to Framers as dspreadb at yahoo.com. Send list messages to framers at lists.frameusers.com.
