General Tab (Project Settings Window)

If you are using ePublisher Pro, this window allows you to specify if the project allows user style overrides in document previews by default. A style override is a change made with Document Designer to the preview of a single document. Overrides can be applied to a paragraph or a table, and an override supersedes any values or properties set in either the source document or in Style Designer. Overrides appear only in output. The do not display in or affect the source document. Overrides cannot be saved to Stationery.

The fields are defined as follows:

Allow user style overrides in document previews (ePublisher Pro only)

Specifies whether to allow user style overrides. When you add overrides to the output in your project, ePublisher adds bookmarks to your source documents. These bookmarks contain unique IDs that store override information and allow ePublisher Pro to keep track of your overrides. These IDs are invisible and do not affect the functionality of your source documents.

If you clear this option, you cannot add overrides to your output, and you cannot use Document Designer. If you do not want ePublisher to add these unique ID bookmarks to your source documents, clear the check box.

If all paragraphs in your Microsoft Word documents use a style other than Normal and you do not plan on adding any overrides to your documents, you may want to clear this option.

Compatibility Configuration

This allows the user to work with the Formats folders found in previous versions. When you install ePublisher, you will notice that there will be multiple folders under ..\WebWorks\ePublisher. Many times users will have XSL overrides (e.g. for the file, ..\Formats\WebWorks Help 5.0\Transforms\content.xsl) that are based in a previous version. This selection gives the user the ability to use that old base Formats folder so that this modified XSL file will not conflict with any of the newer base files.

Keep in mind, when using the legacy Formats folders, that any new Format that is introduced in the newer version will not be available.
