Understanding the Sample Source Documents and Stationery

When writers work with ePublisher in a real-world environment, writers use their source documents and source document templates and Stationery provided by a Stationery designer to generate output.

However, this section assumes that you are using the sample Exploring ePublisher source documents and Stationery provided for you when you install ePublisher to generate output. Using the sample Exploring ePublisher source documents and Stationery allows you to see how quickly and easily writers can generate output using ePublisher Express and Stationery designed by a Stationery designer. Using the sample Exploring ePublisher source documents and Stationery also means that you do not have to create your own sample source document templates and Stationery in order to generate output.

When you explore ePublisher using the provided sample source documents and Stationery, you use sample source documents and Stationery created by a Stationery designer to generate output. These sample source documents were created using Adobe FrameMaker and Microsoft Word template files the Stationery designer created for use with the Exploring ePublisher Stationery. The Stationery designer used ePublisher Pro to create the Exploring ePublisher Stationery you received by performing the following tasks:

  1. Created Adobe FrameMaker and Microsoft Word templates that specified the paragraph and character formats, styles, conditions, and marker types for writers to use when authoring content in source documents. For more information about creating Adobe FrameMaker and Microsoft Word templates, see the ePublisher 'Design Guide.

  2. Created a Stationery design project. For more information about creating a Stationery design project, see the ePublisher Design Guide.

  3. Specified WebWorks Help - Exploring ePublisher, Microsoft HTML Help - Exploring ePublisher, and Dynamic HTML - Exploring ePublisher as target output formats. For more information about specifying output formats and targets, see the ePublisher Design Guide.

  4. Used Style Designer to perform the following tasks:

  5. Defined page breaks to create a new page for each Chapter Title, Heading1, Heading2, and Heading3 style.

  6. Defined the table of contents structure, or levels, for the generated output.

  7. Disabled autonumbering for chapter titles.

  8. Specified that cross-references display as headings with page numbers in source documents, and display as hyperlinks without page numbers in generated output.

  9. Defined popup window styles by completing the following tasks:

Dynamic HTML does not support popup windows.

For more information about using Style Designer to perform these tasks, see the ePublisher Design Guide.

  1. Saved the Stationery and performed a test output generation using the sample template files to confirm that the Stationery generates output correctly. For more information, see the ePublisher Design Guide.

  2. Deployed the Stationery for other writers to use to generate output. For more information, see the ePublisher Design Guide.
