AutoFM - FrameMaker Plugin
AutoFM lets you automate the assembly, pagination, production, and printing
(via PDF) of FM and XML files in FrameMaker.
AutoFM scripts are XML files that specify the FrameMaker (and other) documents to open
and the actions to perform on those files.
When an AutoFM script is passed to the FrameMaker executable at the command line
by a batch file or other scripting language (Perl, Ant, etc.), the instructions in
that script are performed. This lets you include FrameMaker-based processing along
with other utilities and command line processing to perform document conversions
An AutoFM script can open FrameMaker books and documents as well as XML files,
then save them to other
FrameMaker formats or export them to any format supported by your version of
FrameMaker. It can also import files of any supported format and apply a FrameMaker
file as a template to the imported file. This lets you use AutoFM as a tool
for performing bulk file format conversions.
AutoFM scripts can also print the
selected document or book to PDF (or any registered
printer), and specify all of the printer properties available in the Print dialog.
You can perform automation on the selected files within FrameMaker using
FDK client plugins, ExtendScript, or FrameScript.
Because AutoFM scripts are just simple XML files, you can use batch or scripting
languages to generate the AutoFM scripts from lists of files or based on existing
If you're looking for automation of DITA files, you'll want to purchase FMx-Auto, which
unlocks the API in DITA-FMx and allows AutoFM to drive the DITA map to FM book generation
process. FMx-Auto information.
