Structure Snippets - FrameMaker Plugin
Structure Snippets is a plugin developed for FrameMaker 7.0 and above, and
was designed to be used with structured documents. This plugin lets you save
"snippets" of structured content that can be inserted easily as needed. One
common use of a structure snippet is as a template for frequently used content.
Snippets can be stored in a "Local" folder as well as in a "Remote" location
on a shared server. This lets people define snippets that are only available
for their personal use in addition to having the ability to provide snippets
that can be used by a group of writers. Snippets can be inserted by selecting
the entry name from a dialog box, or they can be inserted by issuing the
specified shortcut keystrokes or selecting the name from the context
(right-click or popup) menu.
Snippets can also be added to documents through a snippet script. A snippet
script can add multiple snippets to a document by matching on element and attribute
names. A snippet script can be run interactively on a document or book, or it
can be run programmatically through a "CallClient" API from ExtendScript, FrameScript,
of an FDK client. Using this feature, DITA-FMx can make use of Structure Snippets to
perform "book-build" formatting in the DITA Map to Book processing.
