Good point Fred.

But you could take a dummy file which only has the new par tag (and no 
other par tags) and import the par tags from that file to all the files 
in the book. Then do the search and replace.

Re: Replace a para tag throughout book?

2009-02-23 Thread meg miranda
Another way to replace a para tag throughout a book involves using mif files 
and maybe some scripting.

1. Make mif versions of all your book files.
2. Identify the para tag string text that you want to replace. For ex. 
'Heading2'.
3. Identify the para tag string you want to replace it with. For ex. 'Heading1'.
4. Either write a script to iterate through the files and replace the para or 
open each mif file in a text editor (not frame) and do a search/replace.

I've been writing/formatting web services operations lately, and this sort of 
trick has saved me countless hours.

If you have access to WebWorks 2003, UNIX, and perl, I can help with more 
details on efficiently doing this sort of change for a doc set.

cheers,
Meg

Yes, this is a good approach.  But you don't need WebWorks to
get MIF for all the files in your book, including the .book
file itself.  You can do it with the *demo* version of Mif2Go,
no need to purchase.  Just set up a project with MIF as the
output format.  For MIF, the demo and registered versions
are entirely identical.

One nice feature of Mif2Go's method is that you can save
the files as MIF in a different directory, but keep the
extensions of the Frame binary files, .fm and .book.  In
addition, this does *not* alter the relative paths.  Why?
Because that way when your script is done, you can just 
drop the altered MIF files back into the original dir,
and they Just Work.  (We did this originally to allow use
of CVS to store MIF files, so diff would work on them,
and provide for easy restore.)  This saves you the extra 
step of resaving them as Frame binary at the end; as soon
as you edit one, Frame will save it in binary automatically.

The free unlimited demo version of Mif2Go is available at:
  http://www.omsys.com/dcl/download.htm
You might want to wait until tomorrow; we're putting
a new upgrade (53) on the site later tonight.  ;-)

Replace a para tag throughout book?

Note that while this technique does paste the new tag name and

its format properties into each file where it makes a replacement,

it does *not* add it to the Paragraph Catalog, so that it will show

up as an override (asterisked) in all files except the one where you

originally applied it. And also note that it will not add the new 

tag name and formatting at all to any file where the old tag was 

not actually applied to a paragraph in the document, so the new

tag may or may not be ubiquitous after using this technique. 



So while this approach may be a quick and dirty alternative to using

a script or a plug-in to do the tag renaming/replacement, you may

ultimately find it to be a little too far on the dirty side and not as 

quick as it first seems.

Replace a para tag throughout book?

2009-02-19 Thread Shmuel Wolfson
Good point Fred.

But you could take a dummy file which only has the new par tag (and no 
other par tags) and import the par tags from that file to all the files 
in the book. Then do the search and replace.

Replace a para tag throughout book?

2009-02-18 Thread Nancy Allison

Hi, everyone. I've been asked to increase the point size of my callouts, 
which I have created as a paragraph tag.

Because I cannot live an easy life (and because I am trying to create 
the perfect template), I have decided not to simply increase the point 
size of the current paragraph tag, Callout_Regular. Instead, I have 
created a new tag, Callout_Large. Seems reasonable to have two callout 
tags.

I know I can open each file of my 22-chapter book and use Global Replace 
to change all the Callout-Regulars to Callout-Larges, but Frame won't 
let me do it at the book level. How do I do it? Copy Special? Some 
wondrous plug-in? Thanks.

created a new tag, Callout_Large. Seems reasonable to have two callout
tags.

I know I can open each file of my 22-chapter book and use Global Replace
to change all the Callout-Regulars to Callout-Larges, but Frame won't
let me do it at the book level. How do I do it? Copy Special? Some
wondrous plug-in? Thanks.

Replace a para tag throughout book?

Or, create one of your Callout_Large paras, then Copy Special >
Paragraph Format.
In the Find dialog box, specify the book range, search for
Callout_Regular, and replace by pasting.

Hi Art,

Can this method be used to globally rename a tag across a set of book files?

Thanks,
