Modifying File Mappings

ePublisher provides a default list of file mappings in which file extensions have been preset to use a specific adapter. However, in some cases you may need to modify file mappings for a project. For file extensions that can either be opened with Microsoft Word or Adobe FrameMaker, such as .txt files, you can specify the adapter you want ePublisher to use for the file extension. You can modify file mappings for a specific project or for all of your ePublisher projects.

To modify a file mapping

  1. If you want to modify a file mapping for a specific project, complete the following steps:

  2. On the Project menu, click Project Settings.

  3. In the File Extension column, click the file extension for which you want to modify the file mapping.

  4. If you want to modify a file mapping for all of your ePublisher projects, complete the following steps:

  5. On the Edit menu, click Preferences.

  6. On the File Mappings tab, in the File Extension column, click the file extension for which you want to modify the file mapping.

  7. In the Adapter column, select the ePublisher adapter you want to associate with the file extension. The ePublisher adapter you associate with the file extension will be the ePublisher adapter that opens files with the specified file extension.

  8. Click OK.

  9. Click OK again. Each new ePublisher project you create after you modify the file mapping will use the ePublisher adapter you associated with the file extension.
