I can't change marker text (such as an index entry) by using the Find/Change dialog box. If FrameMaker finds the marker text I specify, and if I type different text in the Change text box and click Change, FrameMaker replaces the marker--not the marker text--with the text in the Change text box.
To change marker text, i use the Special > Marker command
I have loads of marker spread over several documents. It is not practical to change each and every marker text manually.
Basically i have marker with marker text in the format "gotolink xyz.pdf:abc". I would like to replace the marker text to "gotolink xyz.fm:abc".
The marker text varies for different markers but the bottom line is replacing pdf to fm.
Damodar,<br /><br />The fastest way would be to do the search & replace in the MIF files<br />using a text editor (such as UltraEdit or TextPad) or a regular<br />expression tool such as grep or Funduc's Search&Replace. <br /><br />You would look for the statement:<br /><br /> <MText `gotolink xyz.pdf:abc'><br /><br />and replace appropriately.<br /><br />To batch convert all of the files in a book to MIF, you could use the<br />trial version of mif2go available from Omni Systems at<br />http://www.omsys.com
