.book File Extension

Developer: Adobe Systems
File type: FrameMaker Book File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .book. Files with the file extension .book can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .book files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .book file?

Files saved in the BOOK format are digital books or ebooks developed using the Adobe FrameMaker 10 software. These BOOK files are also called FrameMaker book files, but are generally classified as page layout files. A user can create a digital book using the Adobe FrameMaker 10 software, and the content of this digital book can be entered by the user with formatting elements and other page layout attributes, most of which is stored in the BOOK file associated to the digital book development project saved by the user. This is so the Adobe FrameMaker 10 application can reference the data stored in the .book file currently being viewed by the user, and this reference data may include other FrameMaker documents saved in the FM format. Adobe Systems also developed the BOOK format so users of the Adobe FrameMaker 10 software can easily combine different FrameMaker documents into a large project that can be saved in a file with the .book extension. The Adobe FrameMaker 10 software can be installed in compatible Microsoft Windows-based systems to implement support for creating, opening and editing these BOOK and FM files.

how to open a .book file?

Launch a .book file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .book file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .book files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .book file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .book file will open the correct application.

Adobe FrameMaker 10

First launched in January of 2011, Adobe FrameMaker 10 is a version of the original FrameMaker, which is a document processor software used exclusively for authoring and publishing of documents with a variety of contents, including both structured and unstructured, and XML or DITA. This program is also called as FrameMaker 10 Application Pack for S1000D, because the major tasks or functions of authoring, publishing or even reviewing contents that are XML based are on S1000D standard, and definitely 4.0 document supported. With an enhanced, friendly-user interface, this program is easy to manage for the creation and publication of dataset. There are also intuitive tools, for a maximum use, including the use of table catalog, scripting, drag and drop of texts, spelling checker, content management system, automatic formatting, and templates. Publishing contents is more flexible as it works to different channels like Adobe Air, Adobe FlashHelp, PDF, HTML, Oracle Help, and WebHelp.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .book files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .book. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
