Find and Remove Overrides have been part of FrameMaker since v9 (2009).
Here's a resource that highlights new features and improvements on them from
FM9 to the current version.

Just a quick note of thanks to the many of you who have shared your knowledge
and advice for so many years on this list!
As you can tell from my recent spate of messages, I’m doing a big cleanup of
templates and docs. I ran into an odd (to me) issue with the fonts. A font

Sure enough! Wonder how long this feature’s been in FrameMaker without me
Thanks for the info,
Amen, Fred! I've always heavily documented my templates, which, of course,
didn't keep the folks who followed after from ignoring all that and "being
confused" and importing things willy nilly from other template, etc. etc. etc.
But it's nice to have that stuff for those who do care! And a nice
Frame can search for character and paragraph format overrides now, so maybe
he didn't feel it was necessary to update?

Git does not support binary files. It assumes that all files under its
control are mergeable text.
I'd use something like git-annex or Git LFS for unstructured
FrameMaker and image binaries. (It's not currently an issue for me
since my doc source is in Confluence and the only files I put in Git
Has anyone used CudSpan’s Hunt (Pgf) Overrides with FrameMaker 2015 (FrameMaker
13)? On the CudSpan Plug-Ins page, it lists only up to FrameMaker 11. It’s
seems that my old version (back many years ago) is working fine, but I don’t
know if it’s missing anything or having some sort of unintended
Would it be an option for you to keep a copy of every FM document in plain
text? This is not as cumbersome as it sounds, since you can install an
Extendscript which saves the plain text copy automatically whenever you
choose File > Save. I've set up something similiar to have a readable copy
Lin Sims had the idea to add "Save as MIF".
Hence I updated the script in http://www.daube.ch/docu/fmaker73.html
- Save as MIF always saves in the 'current' MIF version.
Trying to use for example Constants.FV_SaveFmtInterchange100 within FM-13
does not save anything.
you can use the content layer to contain detailed descriptions of
everything that is defined in the template, and even a change history as
the template evolves. Self-documentation is a really powerful tool for
templates and stylesheets because I've never met anyone who can remember
And since each of these format/variable/condition templates is only used to
overlay FrameMaker layers that don't contain document content, you can use the
content layer to contain detailed descriptions of everything that is defined in
the template, and even a change history as the template
I have been wishing for a feature like that for some time, but one that
would also handle variable values.
For variable management, I'd recommend taking a look at Leximation's
BookVars plugin: http://leximation.com/tools/info/bookvars.php.
I have been wishing for a feature like that for some time, but one that would
also handle variable values.
The wonderful SmartDocs add-in for Word does that - they have a feature called
Snapshots in which you specify both variable values and conditional text
settings. You can have multiple
You could keep the conditions in a separate file.
Ah, and just treat that file as a "template", and use it to import the
relevant conditions into the applicable docs' .fm files? I like that idea.
It would be easy to create a template_conditions_prod1.fm file, a
When it says that nothing is found, is that in a single open file or in
a book? I've found that there are times when I'm searching through a
book and for some reason FrameMaker does not search though some of the
chapters in the book. My theory is that when FrameMaker has a problem
