Specifying Alternate Location for Tag Templates Directory
You can specify an alternate or additional tag templates directory via a document type's DCF file. This is useful when working with a set of document types that share the same document types, for example DITA.
To specify a tag template directory location in the .dcf file:
1. Open Arbortext Architect, and choose File > Open.
2. Locate the directory in which the document type whose .dcf file you want to modify is saved, and click Select.
3. Once the document type is loaded, choose Edit > DCF. If the document type has a .dcf file, it displays in the Arbortext ArchitectDCF Editor window. If there is no .dcf file associated with this document type, Arbortext Architect automatically creates one.
4. Locate the Options element in the DCF Editor. If the file doesn't include an Options element, add one.
Open the Document Type Viewer (Tools > Document Type Viewer) to view the element hierarchy for the .dcf file. This will help you determine the valid location for the Options element.
5. Open the Modify Attributes dialog box for the Options element..
6. Specify the path to the tag template directory as the value of the tagTemplatesDirectory attribute.
7. Click OK.
8. Choose File > Save to save the changes you have made to the .dcf file.
Once this attribute is set, Arbortext Editor will not consult the default tagtemplates directory in the document types directory when creating a list of available tag templates.
