    generated file combining LOF and LOR

    FieryPantone Level 3

      Sorry if this is something I should have been able to work out for myself – it would be really handy to generate a document that shows me figure captions (a LOF including :figcap styles) and a list of graphics (a LOR including imported graphics)

      The aim is to have a single list I can hand over to people who need to know which file (or files) is referenced for each illustration. I've managed to make one with copy/paste, a text editor and a spreadsheet, but was wondering whether there might be a niftier solution.

          You could generate a LOP that is built from just the paragraphs used in the LOF and LOR .


          It turns that this actually works, with a couple of caveats:

          1. Frame doesn't list the generated paragraph types, from generated files, in the LOP setup dialog. You need to add the generated para names (such as Heading1TOC or Level1IX) to the Para Catalog of a non-generated file.
          2. You probably have to run Update Book twice to capture in the LOP any changes to the other generated files.

            Intriguing! first time I run it, though, it does more or less what I'd expect and lists all the information in page order: so, the captions crop up one after the other while FM is scanning the book, followed by all the filenames retrieved from the LOF. Hope I've missed something :-}
