Using Pass-through Conditions in FrameMaker

A pass-through condition is a condition you apply to content that you do not want ePublisher to process when you generate output. For example, if you have embedded multimedia files in your source documents, such as Audio Video Interleave files (.avi) or Adobe Software Flash files (.swf), you can apply a pass-through condition to the code so that ePublisher does not process the code.

The following example shows .avi code to which you can apply a pass-through condition.

<embed src="sample.avi" width="400"

height="300" pluginspage=";>

</embed>

The following example shows .swf code to which you can apply a pass-through condition.

<embed src="sample.swf" width="400"

height="300" pluginspage="

</embed>

If you have code in your Adobe FrameMaker source documents that you do not want ePublisher to process, create a pass-through condition and then apply the pass-through condition to the code.

Typically you use a pass-through condition defined in an Adobe FrameMaker template by a Stationery designer. You import this condition into your Adobe FrameMaker source document from an Adobe FrameMaker template. After you import the pass-through condition into your source document from the template, you apply the pass-through condition to the content as appropriate.

Typically you should not need to create a pass-through condition in your Adobe FrameMaker source file if you use an Adobe FrameMaker template created by a Stationery designer. However, in some cases you may need to create a pass-through condition in your Adobe FrameMaker source document if you do not have an Adobe FrameMaker template that includes a pass-through condition you need for a project. If you need to create a pass-through condition that is not available in your Adobe FrameMaker template, use native Adobe FrameMaker functionality to create the condition. For more information about creating a condition and applying a condition, see “Creating Conditions in FrameMaker” on page 113 and “Removing Conditions in FrameMaker” on page 115.
