I learned a lot today, but too late.
This morning I did a MIF wash of all the files in a book, saving them to a temp location. I then converted the files back (manually) and copied them back into the original location. Now all of my cross-references are broken (as were the links to my imported graphics, but I've fixed those manually).
I'm looking for a way to update the directory for all of these cross-references without fixing each one manually. Is there a way to do this?
For example, FrameMaker is trying to resolve "..\progref\<filename>" from "\\someserver\techpubs\thisbook\progref".
If I could tell it to change ".. "to "\\someserver\techpubs\thisbook", all would be well!
(Before you suggest it, I have already gone in and set "Suppress Automatic Updating of All Cross-References" (again, too late), and I have discovered the Package feature, which I'll use for moving documentation sets in the future.)
A couple of approaches that I've used are:
Using option 1, I was able to recover and verify that all links now work. You saved me a lot of time!
re: Using option 1, I was able to recover and verify that all links now work.
Glad to hear it. I might add for people who need the tip in the future that you might need to create one or more directories so the path works, and the magic is that when you re-save, FM re-writes all the paths relative (or possibly absolute) to the final saved-in dir.
