Chapter 7. Combining Documents into Books

Chapter 7. Combining Documents into Books

Organizing and maintaining long documents is a necessary part of the documentation process. In the same way that chapters make up a book, smaller document files can make up one larger document. Small document files typically consist of chapters or sections, front matter such as title page and preface, table of contents, appendixes, and an index. FrameMaker’s book features provide the capability required to combine the various files that make up a book. Regardless of how many files you want to include in a book, you’ll appreciate being able to work in a single document window while viewing or making changes to the overall organization of the document files that make up the book.

FrameMaker’s book features bring many productive tools to the table, such as the ability to produce a single table of contents or index based on the smaller set of documents files, as well as applying a variety of settings to some or all of the document files in the book at one time.

In this chapter, you discover the benefits of building book files in FrameMaker through examples such as creating a new book file, working with a variety of commands across some or all the files included in the book, understanding how numbering works, and updating numbering, cross-references, text insets, or generated files with up-to-date information.
