FM-14.0.2.425: modified Welcome screen does not display

In the Welcome screen I have just modified 1 line to get the "Restore Last Session" with a more prominent button.

I changed line 37 from ... class="button tertiary"... to ...class="button"...

But FM-14 insists to use the original version - although the modified version is named welcome.html and the original one is named welcome-ori.html.

Neither Windows restart, nor clearing Temporary Internet Files helped. The file displays as expected in FireFox or IE 11.

Where the heck does FM get the orginal file from? (I have never heard of an FM-temp folder)

In the initial version (14.0.0.361) I did not have this problem, but don't remind whether it existed in 14.0.1.406.

Hi Klaus,

had you seen that a customized Welcome Screen has to be in appdata (since Update 1).

Cheers,

I have now reverted to 14.0.0.361: The modified welcome page is used!

Upated to 14.0.1.406: Modified welcome page not used. The welcome page obviously is not read from

To clarify, the file used by Fm 14.0.1 and higher is %appdata%\Adobe\FrameMaker\14\resources\welcomeScreen\

Stefan, can you please confirm this?

I was able to edit this file and successfully customize my Welcome Screen.

**As with any customizations, you should make backup copies of the original files, just in case.

-Matt

Here's what I did by commenting out a few lines in the HTML file, and modifying the styles.css in that same directory

Yes, confirmed. Starting with Update 1 for FrameMaker (2017 release) the welcome screen is located in %appdata%.
