Chapter 13. Typical FrameMaker Headaches > Understanding Format Overrides

Understanding Format Overrides

FrameMaker uses predefined formats for Paragraph, Character, and Table Designers, as well as page layouts. If you make a change to paragraph, character, or table formats, and use the Apply To button rather than the Update All button, you end up with a format override. Making changes to paragraph text using the formatting bar also causes this result. In the same way, if you change the column layout of a body page without first changing its corresponding master page layout, you end up with a format override for that body page. Format overrides are common and occur as a result of a change you made to a particular selection that no longer matches the predefined format.

Paragraph and character format overrides are indicated by an asterisk (*) in the status bar. Table and page layout overrides have no indicators. If you include format overrides in documents, each time you make a change to the predefined format, the Format Override window appears, as shown in Figure 13.3.
