Creating Standards to Support Single-Sourcing
To define your FrameMaker standards, create a FrameMaker file with all the elements you need in it, including formats, markers, conditions, variables, tables, and master pages. You can use this file to import and update your standards. For example, you can use this file to update variables and conditions across your FrameMaker source files. You can also use this file as a source document in your Stationery design project. To create a template file, start with one of the default templates provided with FrameMaker that most closely matches the format you want. Then, customize the default file to meet your specific needs. The following sections describe various template areas and considerations, and how to effectively design your FrameMaker template file to support single-sourcing with ePublisher.
