BookVars is a FrameMaker plugin developed for FrameMaker 5.5 and above, and can be used with both structured and unstructured files. The BookVars commands let you define a set of variable definitions that are associated with a book file, then update all files in the book with those definitions. You can also define multiple variable definition groups and easily switch between those groups (handy for creating different versions of the same documents, or for use with multiple languages). The BookVars file is just a simple INI file that is created in the same folder as the book file. This file is named <bookname>-BookVars.INI and can be edited with any text editor. You can also use the BookVars file to delete specific variable definitions from documents. For information about the format of a BookVars file and how to create one, see the BookVars File topic.
