Report: Referenced Graphics/Insets


Problem description

FrameMaker provides the option to create a reference list of imported graphics or text insets (list or index).

This reference list lists all imported (respectively referenced) insets. However, there is no option to determine whether and which graphic or text insets actually exist in the file system or not.

Note: Since FM9 this is possible by opening all documents and selecting ‘All opened documents’ in the pod ‘Insets’.

Function description

The script checks all referenced files (graphics and text insets) for their presence in the file system.

By default, the current document or all documents in the current book will be searched. Optionally, all books or all documents can be searched in a selected ‘start folder’, optionally also including subfolders.

When the script is started, the path of the current document or book is always the current start folder.

The number of (un)available insets will be displayed in a dialog:

The FrameMaker console lists detailed information about all referenced insets that are not present in the file system.
