I've been asked to create and configure a template for a new document and I don't know where to start. I'm navigating through the DOCTYPES directory for some guidance.
I tried to take some of the training online but my request must have been lost in the shuffle. Anyway, training or not, I need to do this and this file appears to be necessary for my new dtd but I don't know why.
A DCF file is a Doctype Configuration File. It is a config file for an individual "doctype" within the doctypes folder in Arbortext custom folders. It specifiies things like tags for bolds, italic, and grapics. It specifies a table model. You can also configure what shows in the New Dialog in Editor for that doctype.
There are a host of options that can be configured in the dsf file and they are very useful. You can edit them directly in Arbortext Editor or in a text editor of your choice if you're careful. If you browse through the documenation on PTC support site, there is a Document Types Guide that defines the many options in a dcf pretty well.
Hope that helps!
I'm not sure what version of Arbortext you are working with, but here is a link to the latest DCF guide from PTC support.
This is exactly the sort of guide that I've been looking for. Thank you!! I'm using Arbortext 5.3 but we also have 6 but have not implemented it yet. I'll go through your posted URL to see if there are other documents that will benefit me.
