Specifying Output File Names in FrameMaker

Specify specific names for page output files and embedded image output files when you generate output using Filename markers. Insert Filename markers into your source document for each page or image you want to specify a file name for when you generate content.

To specify a file name for a page or image output file, your Stationery and FrameMaker template must have the Filename marker type configured. Your output format must also support this feature. For more information about output formats that support this feature, see “Features Available in Each Output Format” on page 8.

The following procedure provides an example of how to specify page and embedded image output file names in Adobe FrameMaker source documents using unstructured Adobe FrameMaker 7.2. Steps for specifying page and embedded image output file names in Adobe FrameMaker may be different in other versions of Adobe FrameMaker.

To specify page and embedded image output file names in an Adobe FrameMaker source document

  1. If you want to insert a Filename marker for a page output file, complete the following steps:

  2. In your Adobe FrameMaker source document, locate the page for the topic to which you want to assign a specific filename. For more information about creating pages using page breaks, see “Specifying Page Breaks Settings” on page 329.

  3. Insert your cursor at the beginning of the first paragraph on the page.

  4. If you want to insert a Filename marker for an embedded image output file, complete the following steps:

  5. In your Adobe FrameMaker source document, locate the embedded image for which you want to assign the output graphic file.

  6. On the Graphics menu, click Tools to display the graphic tools palette.

  7. Click the Text Frame icon.

  8. Drag the cursor across the image to draw a text frame over the image.

  9. In the Create New Text Frame window, in the Number field, type 1, and then click Set.

  10. Click outside of the image, and then insert your cursor in the text frame.

  11. In Adobe FrameMaker, on the Special menu, click Marker.

  12. In the Marker Type field, select Filename from the drop-down list.

  13. If the Filename marker type is not on the list, check with the Stationery designer to obtain the name of the marker type the Stationery designer created to support this functionality and then use the marker type specified by the Stationery designer. For more information, refer to “Implementing Online Features in FrameMaker” on page 81.

  14. In the Marker Text field, type the file name you want to assign to the output file. Do not include the output file extension when you type the Filename marker text.

  15. Click New Marker.

  16. Save your source document.

  17. Generate output for your project. For more information, see “Generating Output” on page 300.

  18. In Output Explorer, verify ePublisher created an output file using the file name you specified. For more information, see “Viewing Output in Output Explorer” on page 305.
