Structured FrameMaker: Using variables in EDD

Similar to text insets, you can use variables in a FrameMaker EDD. In the example below (see Adobe Captivate demo), I have used a set of variables as attribute values. A paragraph style is applied based on the attribute value as part of a context level formatting rule. If you add a new attribute value to your structured template, you can use one of the pre-defined variables to add that attribute value to the context rule. Context level formatting rule is updated based on the new attribute value. Importing element definitions again updates the template.
