Convert Character Formatting to Tags


Problem description

Direct formatting of text (e.g.bold setting) without the use of character formats may lead to problems during the production process.

FrameMaker provides the option to apply automatically generated character formats to these manual formattings (File > Utilities > Create & Apply Formats). However, the assigned names are not very meaningful (CharFmt, CharFmt1, CharFmt2, ...).

Function description

The script replaces direct formatting with the corresponding named character formats (e.g.‘Superscript’) and includes them in the character format catalog.
