Producing Output Based on Stationery : Working with Source Documents : Adding Source Documents to Projects
 
Adding Source Documents to Projects
You can add source documents to your project when you create a project. You can also add source documents to your project after you create a project. When you add source documents to your project, ePublisher automatically adds the source documents to your project and creates a top-level group in Document Manager that contains your source document. For more information about top-level groups, see “Understanding Source Documents Groups”.
To add a source document to your project
1. On the Project menu, click Add Document.
2. Browse to the folder that contains the source document you want to add to your project.
3. Select the source document you want to add to your project, and then click Open.
4. If you configured ePublisher to scan source documents when you add source documents to projects, ePublisher adds the source documents to Document Manager and scans the source documents. For more information about scanning source documents and setting scanning options, see “Scanning Source Documents” and “Setting Scanning Options”.
5. If you did not configure ePublisher to scan source documents when you add source documents to projects, ePublisher adds the source documents to Document Manager but does not scan your documents. After ePublisher adds your source documents to Document Manager, scan your source documents. For more information about scanning source documents and setting scanning options, see “Scanning Source Documents” and “Setting Scanning Options”.
6. If you are adding a FrameMaker book file to your project, ePublisher adds the FrameMaker book file (.bk or .book files) and the source documents the FrameMaker book file contains (.fm files) to your project. Consider the following points when you add a FrameMaker book file to your project:
*When you add a FrameMaker book to your project, by default ePublisher creates a group for the FrameMaker book in Document Manager, and any FrameMaker source documents contained within the FrameMaker book are always contained within the group in your project.
*When you make changes to a FrameMaker book, such as adding or removing source documents from a FrameMaker book file, when you scan the FrameMaker book, ePublisher updates the project with the changes you made to the FrameMaker book file. If you add or remove FrameMaker source documents in a FrameMaker book, ensure you scan the FrameMaker book before you generate output. For more information about scanning source documents and setting scanning options, see “Scanning Source Documents” and “Setting Scanning Options”.
*If your FrameMaker book contains front matter files, table of contents files, or index files, consider the following points:
*If you are generating output for a target that uses any output format other than PDF, by default ePublisher generates output for source document front matter files included in a book, but does not generate output using the table of contents files and index files included in the FrameMaker book. ePublisher instead uses the headings and index entries in the source documents to generate a table of contents and an index for your online output.
*If you are generating output for a target that uses PDF as the output format, by default ePublisher generates the PDF using the front matter, index, and table of contents files included in the FrameMaker book.
*The Stationery designer may modify these default file processing settings when designing Stationery. If you have target setting modification permissions, you can also customize these settings as needed. For more information about target setting customization permissions and customizing file processing settings, see “Customizing Target Settings” and “Specifying File Processing Behavior for Front Matter, Index, and Table of Contents Files”. If you do not have target setting customization permissions, instead of adding an Adobe FrameMaker .book file that contains front matter, table of contents, and index files, you can instead add the individual Adobe FrameMaker chapter .fm files, and then use the individual chapter files to generate output.
After you add source documents to your ePublisher project, ePublisher displays your source documents in Document Manager. You can organize your source documents in Document Manager and perform the following tasks:
*Open and edit source documents from within Document Manager. For more information, see “Opening Source Documents from Document Manager”.
*Relink source documents. For more information, see “Relinking Source Documents”
*Remove source documents from your project. For more information, see “Removing Source Documents from Projects”.
*Create an organizational structure for your online output using groups. For more information, see “Understanding Source Documents Groups” and “Organizing Source Documents Using Groups”.
*Rearrange the source document order in Document Manager. For more information, see “Rearranging Source Documents in Groups”.
