  • Importing mapping settings for Framemaker imports does not work,
    the mappings are not applied.
    
    To recreate:
    
     - in a module select File;Import;Framemaker...
     - select a valid Framemaker file and click ?Import...?
     - apply some mappings and save the mappings (.map) file
     - perform the import
     - now perform the same import having loading the saved mappings
    file
    
    When the mapping file is loaded a tabbing issue is immediately
    visible in the dialog. the mapping none-the-less appear to have

Temporary fix

  • Edit the map file to remove the "[tab]-> {name}" from the end of
     the LHB strings
    
    For example
    
    <LHB><1Level -> Heading Level 1>
    
    becomes
    
    <LHB><1Level>
