Project Format Overrides : Creating Project Format Overrides : Information about Overriding files : Procedure
These steps may be taken with any of the files you need to modify inside the Formats directory. This procedure assumes that ePublisher Designer has been installed in the default directory, and that your ePublisher Designer projects are located in the “Documents” folder. If the user has installed ePublisher Designer somewhere else, or stores projects somewhere else, remember to substitute those locations when following the procedure.
Note: This is the manual way of doing an override, but you can always use the ePublisher Designer Advanced Menu (specially if you are overriding the Shared folder).
1. In Windows, open your project folder. Create a new folder named "Formats".
2. Open this new Formats directory.
3. Duplicate the folder hierarchy of the file you wish to modify.
See Figure 2 for the folder hierarchy necessary to modify the pages.xsl file in WebWorks Reverb.
Substitute the correct folder and file name inside the Formats directory.

4. Navigate to the file you wish to modify in the ePublisher Designer installation directory.
5. Select and copy the file(s) you wish to override.
6. Navigate back to the Formats folder in the Projects directory created in steps 1-3.
7. Paste the file you copied from the installation directory into the folder created in step 3.
8. Modify files as needed.
After you have made the modifications you wish to make to the file in your project directory, save it, and the next time you click Generate in your ePublisher Designer project, this file will automatically override the default file and the changes you made will be incorporated into the output.
Note: When you save the ePublisher Designer project as Stationery, the project format overrides you have created will be saved with your Stationery. This stationery can then be used to create future projects.
