FrameScript 6 App Library

The following scripts are free. They are part of the new FrameScript App Library. This is an ongoing collection of free scripts that can be used by current FrameScript 6 customers. These are complete scripts. They require no programming. FrameScript is not just for script writers anymore!

The following scripts require FrameScript 6 with build number greater than or equal to 60 to run.

ArchiveFM

ArchiveFm is a FrameScript 6 script that starts with a FrameMaker document or book, locates all the external reference files and saves them (including the starting document or book) to a standard zip file. You can use this to create a complete backup of your document or book. This will make it easier to copy a book or complete document to another computer.

In addition to saving an entire set of files, you can specify a date and save only those files whose modification date is before or after that specified date. This allows you to make a partial backup, just saving the files that have changed. You can use this, for example, to save each day’s changes at the end of the work day, by saving it to a different zip file each day. This would also provide you with a way to keep old versions around without remembering which files you have updated.

The ArchiveFm window is a dialog box that allows you to specify the selection options. The starting document or book will appear in the window caption. Here is a sample start using the Classic Poems book.

For more information, see the ArchiveFm.pdf document.

RefMagic

RefMagic is a FrameScript 6 script that displays a list of references for the current document or book. The references include graphic insets (images), cross-references, variables, markers and text insets. RefMagic also displays a list of variable format names that can be used to insert variables into the specified document. Also, if you have images imported by copy, RefMagic will let you convert it to a by reference image. And finally, RefMagic can be used to navigate the document, because you can jump directly to the location in the document of any of the references, by selecting the reference, then pressing the “Go To” button.

The RefMagic window is a modeless window, so you can continue to work in your document while the window is on the screen. Below is an example of the RefMagic window, using a document containing the text of the Jabberwocky poem by Lewis Carroll.

For more information, see the RefMagic.pdf document.

TidyImport

TidyImport is a FrameScript 6 app that imports selected formats from a template document into one or more target documents while removing the formats in the target document(s) that are not in the source document. This allows you to tidy up your documents by removing unwanted formats (those that are not in the template document). It uses the currently active FrameMaker document or book (selected documents only), as the target document(s) and lets you choose the source document (template) as well as which formats to copy. The TidyImport window is a dialog box that allows you to specify the selection options. The starting document or book will appear in the window caption. Here is a sample using the Classic Poems book.

For more information, see the TidyImport.pdf document.
