SAI File Management

File management tasks within the SAI.

New ScML Document

Creates a new document loaded with the ScML template. This feature relies on the template location provided under Set Preferences.

Apply ScML Template

Loads the ScML template onto the active document. This feature also provides an option to Associate Styles, so user-defined styles can be easily mapped to ScML styles.

  • Associate Styles: Two lists will appear: The left one comprises the styles found in the document; the right one is the ScML styles. To associate a document style with an ScML style, select each style from its respective list and click Associate.

    In the left list, non-ScML paragraph styles that are not defined as bold or italic will also have a bold (B) and an italic (I) listing. This is to aid in styling headers and other content that may be indicated via local rendering. For example, if a-heads have not been distinguished with a style (they’re all “Normal”) but, rather, are all bold, you can associate “Normal” (B) with “ah” from the ScML styles list. If “Normal” a-head text is only partially bold or partially italic (e.g., if a book title is mentioned in the a-head), then the bold or italic will be retained but the paragraph will be mapped as whatever style you have associated with “Normal.” After associating styles, you can then apply the correct style (ah) to that paragraph manually.

    Click Associate All with P to map all remaining unmapped paragraph styles to the ‘p’ style.

    • If you would prefer not to see or use the bold and italic style options, click the button to Remove unmapped ‘B’ and ‘I’ styles.
    • Options are also available to hide/display ScML styles found in the document, paragraph styles, and character styles. Note that only styles visible when ‘OK’ is clicked will be mapped.

    When finished, click OK. The document styles will be recomposed as their associated ScML styles.

    Styles in the document pane will be indicated as P (paragraph style) or C (character style). You will only be allowed to map a style to another style of the same type.

  • Load Association: Use the drop-down menu to select from previously saved associations. Click this button to load the relevant mapping into the current document. This is useful when working on multiple book chapters that were authored using similar style sets.
  • Save Association: Save an association with a memorable name for use in other documents.
  • Delete Association: Use the drop-down menu to select from previously saved associations. Click this button to remove an association from the list when it is no longer needed.

Batch Print

Allows printing of one or more documents with custom settings applied. The following parts of a document can be printed, individually or together: main text, endnotes/footnotes, author queries, internal queries, and typesetter notes. In addition, content can be printed with changes tracked (revision marks) and style can be printed (all or a selected subset of ScML). If styles are chosen to print, they will appear in the output as XML style tags (e.g., <paft>) around each relevant paragraph. Page numbers can also be added, if desired.


  • Select an Operation: Provides options for page numbering and/or printing.
    • Number File(s) Only: Select this option to apply page numbers to the file(s) but not print. Also specify what number the page numbering should start on under Starting Page Number.
    • Number and Print File(s): Select this option to apply page numbers to the file(s) and print. Also specify what number the page numbering should start on under Starting Page Number.
    • Print File(s) Only: Select this option if you wish to simply print the file(s) without page numbers.
  • Current Printer: If the printer specified in the white box is not the desired printer, select a different printer by clicking Change Printer.
  • Elements to Print: Select which elements of the document(s) to print.
    • Text: Prints the main text.
    • No Tags: Prints the text with no paragraph style tags.
    • All Tags: Prints the text with all paragraph style tags.
    • Selected Tags: Prints the text with only specified paragraph style tags. Select which tags to include in the print by clicking Select Tags.
    • Notes: Prints the endnotes and footnotes.
    • Revision Marks: Prints any Track Changes marks.
    • Author Queries: Prints all author queries.
    • Internal Queries: Prints all internal queries.
    • Typesetter Notes: Prints all typesetter notes.
  • File Selection Summary: Shows the file selection information (determined under the File Selection tab).

File Selection

  • File Scope: Select what documents will be printed and/or page numbered: the active document or multiple documents.
  • Choose Files: Active when Selected Files is designated; opens Explorer so that files can be selected for printing.
  • Move Up/Down: Active when a document in the Selected Files box is selected; allows the printing order to be set. Only one document can be moved at a time. Click Run to start the printing.

Split Document

Splits the document at Word section breaks into one file per section. A number is appended to the end of each file name to indicate the order of the output files. The new documents are saved into the same folder where the source file is located.

To output one file per chapter, run the “Insert Chapter Breaks” tool located under the Convert Notes menu before running this tool.
