Can I customise the FrameMaker home/launch page?

Running (Structured) FrameMaker 2022.

Our organisation has defined a structured application which is the first entry in structapps.fm. Unfortunately when a user launches FrameMaker they see a home page which offers a high level menu (Open, Restore, Connect, Browse), a list of recent items, and a tableau of Create a New Document options. The first seven options relate to DITA 1.3, and a user has to click on the eighth ("Other XML") and pick our application from the list of possibilities offered there.

I would like to customise this part of the home page so that the options for our structured application appear first, but I haven't been able to discover how to do this. If there's a section for it in maker.ini I couldn't see it.

Is there a way to promote our application to the front page? I don't want to supplant DITA in the rest of the world - just in  our organisation 😉

Cheers

Hi,

 

Yes. You can customize the welcome screen. It's described briefly in the online help. There is an HTML page which you have to adapt.
