I've frequently seen MIF files offered as a way to solve various formatting problems in Frame, some of which I've experienced. But is there such a thing as a MIF training course? Do you need to be a software developer to make sense of them? Of course I've used MIFs as a transfer file, and I've saved as MIF to iron out apparently corrupted files. So I tried Grant's-and-Peter's method on a chapter file where I too wish to sort out the para tag usage. What I get is a 400-page (!!) 9.6 MB MIF file that takes 5 minutes to open. Admittedly, we use a lot of tags, about 200+. Is this size MIF reasonable? It's not very manageable! I recently convinced the corporate hardware keepers to increase the RAM on my Sun, which is why I can now open the MIF at all. The attempt used to just crash Frame. I found the tag definition section, but I can't see how plowing through several hundred pages of that is any faster than clicking through the chapter files manually and marking off the tags on a checklist. What am I missing? Can anyone elaborate? Is this a technique better suited to repetitive use than a one-off?
