and since they're not on-screen, they won't appear in print preview either. Everything else works fine - valid SGML no errors.
I have graphic tags and sheet tags, and they have attributes filled in. Graphic entities are defined and the pictures themselves are located in the proper directory. ACL switch graphicdisplay is ON.
But I can't get the graphics to appear on the screen. I can't get the Insert Graphic File dialog box to appear. If I try to add a new graphic or sheet tag, it tells me graphics are not allowed by the DTD. That's preposterous - I'm right next to an existing graphics tag. There are 160 other graphics spread throughout the file.
There has to be some small switch or something? Can someone shed some light on this? FOSI displays everything else correctly on screen (generated text, indentions) how could it do all that and just NOT DISPLAY GRAPHICS?
Arbortext 5.2 / Windows 7 / CMM doctype (ATA industry standard)
It sounds like the graphic elements need to be declared as such in the .dcf file, which is in the doctype directory. Find the Specials tag, insert a <Graphic> tag for each element that is supposed to be a graphic, and fill in the relevant attributes. It will look something like this in ASCII:
<Graphic element="graphic" filename="name"/>
Suzanne is probably has answered your question.
See Arbortext Editor's Help topics that describe the .dcf file
Graphic elements and their attributes are defined in the document type. However, before graphics can be inserted and manipulated in a document, the graphic elements and their attributes must be configured in the document type configuration file (.dcf file). Review your document type to determine the graphic elements and their attributes since not all graphic settings in the .dcf file are valid for all graphic elements.
Note also that if the document type has an associated .style file, then any graphics elements must be styled in Arbortext Styler before the graphics will appear in the Arbortext Editor window. See the Arbortext Styler Help for more information on styling elements.
Arbortext Styler imports information from a document type’s .dcf file when you create a new StylerSheet for the document type. However, once a StylerSheet is associated with a document type, any changed settings in that stylesheet override the original settings in the document type’s .dcf file.
To enable graphics support for a document type:
Please note though that Arbortext Editor 5.2 is not supported on Windows 7.
It is not until version 5.4 that Windows 7 is supported.
