If you create a variable for your chapter number and re-use the same file for
every chapter, I think you will produce your desired result. Good luck!

Hi folks,

I have a query regarding Framamaker templates?

In word, we can simply create a template (.dot)
containing all the sytles/format we need and attach
the template to a .doc file. Is this possible in

In Framemaker each file (.fm) is treated as a chapter
and lots of such chapters constitutes a book. If I
want all these chapters to follow the same
formats/styles, how do I do that? For example, suppose
I want all my heading 1's to be Bold and italised, how
do I ensure that this format is followed in all the
chapters. As of now, as soon as I go on to chapter 2,
I need to customize the Heading 1 all over again.

Any suggestions?
