Input Configurations Tab (Project Settings Window)
This window allows you to specify settings for ePublisher input formats, also known as ePublisher adapters.
The fields are defined as follows:
Preserve condition colors in PDF
Specifies whether you want to preserve any colors assigned to conditions in your Adobe FrameMaker source documents when you generate output.
Preserve condition styles in PDF
Specifies whether you want to preserve any condition styles assigned to conditions in your Adobe FrameMaker source documents when you generate output.
Version used for generation
Specifies the version of Adobe FrameMaker to use when generating output. Use this setting if you have more than one version of Adobe FrameMaker installed on the computer used to generate output and you want ePublisher to use a specific version of Adobe FrameMaker when generating output.
Preserve change bars in PDF
This allows the change bar feature in Microsoft Word to be added to the PDF output.
Preserve Index
By default, ePublisher does not use the Index generated within Microsoft Word. In cases (usually when generating PDFs) where you want to preserve the Index generated by Microsoft Word, you can enable this feature.
Preserve Table of Contents
By default, ePublisher does not use the table of contents generated within Microsoft Word. In cases (usually when generating PDFs) where you want to preserve the table of contents generated by Microsoft Word, you can enable this feature.
Preserve Table of Figures
By default, ePublisher does not use the table of figures generated within Microsoft Word. In cases (usually when generating PDFs) where you want to preserve the table of figures generated by Microsoft Word, you can enable this feature.
RD field behavior
Specifies how you want Referenced Document (RD) field code behavior used when you generate output using Microsoft Word source documents that contain RD field codes that reference other source documents. The values for this setting are defined as follows:
 
Value
Description
Indicates Book document
Processes source documents that contain RD field codes as book files. ePublisher processes all the source documents identified by RD field codes.
Ignore
Ignores all the source documents identified by RD field codes. ePublisher processes only the source documents included directly in the project.
Auto-Detect
Processes source documents that contain RD field codes based on the contents of the source document. ePublisher analyzes the contents of each source document to determine if the file should be processed as a book file, front matter, table of contents, or index. This analysis is based on the presence of RD field codes combined with the presence or absence of a TOC or INDEX field code, which indicate whether the document contains a table of contents, index, or table of figures..
All DITA topics must exist
Specifies whether or not to generate an error instead of a warning whenever a missing topic is found during the processing of a ditamap.
Combine DITA character styles
Starting with version 2014.1, ePublisher will use combined character styles to allow nested elements to be styled more precisely in the generated output. For new projects this setting will default to enabled, otherwise it will be disabled for backward compatibility.
Convert notes to tables
Enable this setting to convert DITA <note> elements into simple tables with ePublisher paragraph styles for better control of the generated output.
DITA Abbreviated Form Scope
Specifies what scope to use when controlling when an abbreviation should be used instead of the long form. The values for this setting are defined as follows:
 
Value
Description
Map
Use the long form once for the entire ditamap. All other instances after the first usage will use the abbreviated form.
Part
If you organize multiple chapters into a part, then only the first instance will use the long form within the part.
Chapter
Use the long form once per chapter.
Topic
Use the long form once per topic.This is the default configuration.
DITA Open Toolkit version
Specifies the version of the DITA Open Toolkit you want to use when generating output using DITA source documents.
Emit draft comments
Enable this setting when working with DITA and you want to emit draft comments.
Ignore print attribute
Disable this setting if you want ePublisher to process the print attribute for DITA content. In the DITA 1.3 specification, the @print attribute was deprecated and a new attribute that obeys DITA filtering rules, @deliveryTarget, was introduced.
