Re: FM driving me crazy!

I had this problem with 7.0 once, but I was trying to set the
properties from within the component file.

Check the settings for the file in the book file. The book file
overrides the settings in the component file and changes its settings.
And, IIRC, the book file wants all its components to have the same
pagination, so check the settings for the other files, especially the
preceeding files.

Structured or unstructured -- it's all the same here.

 I *wonder*, though, if this isn't really an artifact of generated files.
 I update the pagination which fixes the problem, but then I regenerate,
 which creates a new, broken file. I wonder if FM is simply not smart
 enough to generate an extra page when it regenerates the list of tables.
 Anyone know?

No, FM handles generated files just fine. Have you ever saved the TOC
to file before regenerating it? If not, try that. Other than that,
ensure your file and book pagination settings are both set to make
page count even.

First, check the internal pagination setting of the generated file and
make sure it's set to double-sided, not single sided.

Then check the pagination settings of the files that come before and
after it in the book; ideally they should all be set the same and at
the book level.

Well, I hate to ask, but have you _ever_ saved the generated file(s), or
are you creating a new one each time you generate? 

If the latter, that would explain a lot of your problems.

FWIW, the technique I use and have disseminated to all the 
other writers in my group is this:
- in the same directory as your book file, make a copy of each 
  generated file template using the expected name (for example, 
  booknameTOC.fm and booknameLOF.fm)
- use the book file's Add menu to add the generation details
  (tags to collect, etc.) for each type of generated file; when 
  FrameMaker prompts you to update the book after adding 
  each of these file, decline that option.
- when all generated files have been added, update the book

It saves the time it takes to do the initial update/generate pass,
which can be substantial for large books or documents that 
have graphics pasted into them instead of referenced.

It's not necessary for all book components to have the same pagination,
as someone else suggested. But it _is_ necessary that they be logically
compatible. First, make sure all the book's files are set to Double
Sided. Then, check the 1st Page Side settings of the LOT, the file
preceding it, and the file following it -- are these settings consistent
with each other? 

You can't, for example, set the LOT to start on a right page, have an
even page count, and be followed by a file that starts on a left page.
If you do, FM has to ignore one of your settings, and I'm not sure which
one it will drop (maybe not the same one every time). 

And as someone else mentioned, after you generate/update, you _are_
saving all the files in the book, right? 

HTH!

Joe,

Have you tried to set these properties _in the book window_?

- select all the files you want to set up
- in Fromat > Page Layout > Pagination set 'make page count even'

=> The properties will be propageted to the individual files.

Only thing I can think of is to make sure the pagination settings are the 
same in the file and at the book level. Does that make a difference?

FM driving me crazy!

2006-01-24 Thread Joe Malin
Well, FrameMaker 7.1 is driving me crazy again (so what else is new?)

I'm trying to update a book with several files in it. One file has only
one page in it. I set the pagination properties in Format > Page Layout
> Pagination to "Make Page Count Even" so it will add an extra blank
page. But every time I update the book, this file is set back to a
single page.

It's a generated file, List of Tables. I am setting its pagination from
the book window, not from within the file itself.

This is unstructured FrameMaker.

Any ideas?

FM driving me crazy!

2006-01-24 Thread Joe Malin
Thanks. I did that once, and it worked. However, every time I update the
book, it goes back to being one page!

I *wonder*, though, if this isn't really an artifact of generated files.
I update the pagination which fixes the problem, but then I regenerate,
which creates a new, "broken" file. I wonder if FM is simply not smart
enough to generate an extra page when it regenerates the list of tables.
Anyone know?

Update the pagination for the whole book. FM applies the pagination
accross all files in the book.
