Hi Everyone, I have a cover page image in a word document. I have created the user manual in Framemaker. Now, I have to insert the cover page image from word document to the .book file, so that the manual can get completed. How to do that? Please help
I have attached the structure for your reference. Basically, before TOC, I need to have a cover page. How to do that?
Create your cover.fm topic, add it to the book & position it above the TOC.
Did Jeff answer your question, or are you asking how to get the cover image from Word into the new FrameMaker cover page chapter?
Yes, Barb that's what I am a trying to achieve. Actually, I got the entire development files (.book etc.) from the tech writer. However, since I am still trying to find out the way to edit the existing files with the latest content, I am unable to add the cover page.
In other words, the guy has kept the cover page image in a word document. Now, I am not able to understand that how actually he merged the cover page image from the word document in the existing .book file and generate it as a complete PDF along with cover page and content. Please help
If you want to move away from the writer's workflow, then if you are working in a later version of Word you can get hold of the graphic by right-clicking on the .docx file and choosing to extract the archive. (docx files are like zip files).
You can then get hold of the images used, and then insert them into your new Frame file for the cover page either as a reference or copied graphic.
