Great, Helen. Another way of doing it might have been to create colors under the names of the condition names: eOnly, Print1, etc. That way you would not have to remember any color names or to which condition each color applied. Cheers, Bodvar Bjorgvinsson On Fri, Apr 19, 2013 at 4:28 AM,

Hello, I'd like to update the definition for the system variable Running H/F1 for hundreds of FrameMaker 7.2 files. I don't want to update other user variables, so I can't use the Import Formats Variable definitions method. Does anyone know of a painless way of doing this? regards,

Hi, MIF snippets do not work. You can import the MIF snippet only via import by copy into a single file. If you would then import the variables from this file into other files (via import formats), you would import all variables. I would recommend to check the variable plugins from Leximation

Really? I've used a MIF snippet in the last month to update all the variables in a book file, and that was in Frame10. (ETudsbury, I forgot to say that you have to reopen the MIF file in FrameMaker, but I figured you'd know that since the file you're importing from has to be open.) On Fri, Apr

Hi Lin, I was sure. If you open a MIF snippet to be able to import formats from it, all variables which are not defined in the MIF snippet are populatead with the default values. That's why I never used it to import formats from it. However, if you do import formats, it seems that these default

If it helps any, I learned to do this from Shlomo. :) Yes, Edwin will have to open each book to do this, but it's still faster than editing one file in each book and importing from there. I don't think there's a plugin available that will do any better than that. On Fri, Apr 19, 2013 at 9:06

If the MIF snippet or some other approach works, you could do all files at once by creating a scratch book, using Windows' search to find all your .fm files, and dragging and dropping the found files into the book. Then, in FrameMaker, select all the files in the book and import the snippet.
