Working with sample AFP files

You can use AFP Visual Environment to enhance a sample AFP file.

The sample AFP file should be representative of production AFP files.You can then run an AFP Visual Environment command to make the same enhancements to production AFP files.

To enhance a sample AFP file, first you convert any line data to Mixed Object Document Content Architecture for Presentation (MO:DCA-P) format. Then you start the user interface and open the sample AFP file. You can choose to create a new AFP Visual Environment control file or update an existing control file. If necessary, you must specify the AFP resource directories to AFP Visual Environment, and create custom font-mapping files.
