DITA-FMx offers some features that make new file creation simple and easy. Entering the title for the new topic in the New File dialog box automatically creates the file name based on a format that you have defined using special building blocks. You can also create new files using “element templates” which pre-populate the topic with boilerplate content that you have set up. Prolog metadata in new files can automatically be set with the author’s name and creation date, and each time you update a file, the revision date metadata can be automatically set.
This video introduces these and other features for creating new DITA files with DITA-FMx.
