Maintenance customers only:

APIS IQ Software offers several ways to save a bookmark within an fme file. A Command Line Bookmark is a special bookmark that can be saved as a template in the Windows Registry. It can be used to open third party programs (i.e. not the IQ Software) and display objects saved in the bookmark. The bookmark template can be saved in the Registry Editor (Windows key –> ‘regedit’). To run the bookmark from the IQ Software, the template must already be saved in the Registry before starting the IQ program. For exact instructions with several examples click here.
