RE: Automating migration to new Frame template?

Well, I'm just trying to save the writers some manual work. Press a button, hands-free, all that good stuff.

This is great input--part of a "do we automate" analysis is "why bother automating?"--maybe it's not worth the trouble.

Thanks! James

I'm curious as to why the MIF batch process is needed at all. The last time I changed to a new template, I just...

 Used Global Update to convert paragraphs;
 Imported one old file into a blank doc based on the new template;
 Used the Utilities > Create & Apply Formats for any new para and chara tags;
 Imported all formats from the new file into all applicable files in the book; 
 Then did some clean-up with Silicon Prairie's Paragraph Tool.

This didn't take long. Is batch processing MIF files any faster?
