Pleading ignorance, but what exactly is "FrameTech component tagging'? Is this a third-party product. Are you using FM in strucutured or unstructed mode?
Frame Technologies is the original developer of FrameMaker (pre-Adobe purchase). They developed a Frame plug-in called FrameTech.
The tags allow you to "mark" different documentation maps for a variety of product lines. Using the tags we can generate similar information products for multiple product lines using a single-sourced document.
How does this tagging work? How do these tags appear in MIF? Are these different from Conditional tags?
You can always download the try-out version to see if this plug-in continues to work.
