5.10.4 Ensuring link targets are present in RTF
If the target of a link from a FrameMaker-generated
list (such as TOC, LOF, or LOT) is not referenced from any other point
in your document, the ObjectID for that target might not be present in
Word output. This is because the default is to retain only referenced
IDs (see §4.4 Identifying files and
objects). Mif2Go cannot tell from a file itself whether
any ObjectIDs are being referenced from other files.
This is a problem only for converted lists; targets of links from converted indexes are always present in RTF output.
To ensure that converted-list link targets are
present, you have a couple of options:
a format property.
The following method is deprecated:
a "level" number.
Include all ObjectIDs
To include all ObjectIDs in RTF output:
Including all ObjectIDs can increase the size
of each output file, by providing a Word bookmark for every item. However,
this setting does guarantee that links can be completed. See §5.9.1 Including ObjectIDs
for Word links and cross references.
Assign a format property
To assign an ObjectID-creating format property
to each referenced paragraph format (for example):
; KeepID retains the Frame ObjectID, so hyperlinks
; files (TOC, LO*, IO*) work in Word;
not needed for IX files.
These settings cause Mif2Go to retain paragraph ObjectIDs for
the formats listed. (The same is true for the deprecated [WordStyles]Contents
Sometimes character formats can interfere with
paragraph ObjectIDs. If any target paragraphs have character formats
applied, you might have to use the first method instead: Include
Assign a "level" number
This method is
deprecated; use one of the others instead. To assign an
ObjectID-creating "level" number to referenced paragraph formats (for
; style = 0 (the default), or 1 to create link
The integer after the equals sign can be any integer
greater than zero; the actual value does not matter. Assigning a non-zero
integer causes Mif2Go to retain paragraph ObjectIDs for
the formats listed.
