FrameMaker and WORD: Table Title and Pagination Options
FrameMaker is generally known for having "the best tables on the planet." Due to the many things you can do with tables, there are some pagination and formatting features that many users do not discover. This brief video reveals that: (a) Table Titles can go above or below the table, (b) that you can specify that a table start "anywhere" (e.g. below current line) or (c) the table "floats", allowing a backfill of text pagination if the table moves to the next column. The video also touches on how you control breaks with tables, or make a table "unbreakable" in pagination via table row formats. Although these are advanced features, they are very simple and logical to use. Watch the video and find out how "you can do it too!"
FrameMaker and WORD: Table Resize Column Options
FrameMaker 11's powerful tables give you a variety of ways to resize columns. You can: (a) resize columns to width of longest line, (b) make column equal to another (c) make column a certain percentage of current size or (d) even "copy/paste" a table column width from another table. And that is just a start. Watch this 6 minute demo to get a solid grounding in this simple, yet powerful feature. Adobe Product Evangelist Maxwell Hoffmann shows you how.
FrameMaker for Word: Insert Landscape Pages Next to Numbered Headings
In Microsoft Word, there are often problems associated with inserting single column layout or landscape pages within multicolumn layout, if a section break is required in the middle of a multi-level list, or next to a numbered heading. This is not the case with FrameMaker. Word requires section breaks to change page layout; FrameMaker uses straight forward master pages for page layout. Watch this brief video to see how "unbreakable multi-level numbering" in FrameMaker stays intact as individual page layout is changed, or even when a landscape page is inserted next to multi-level numbered headings.
FrameMaker for Word: Tables with Auto Text in Header Rows
Here's a really cool "Table Trick" in FrameMaker 11. You have the ability to make a Table Style "remember" a different paragraph style for each column in the first row of header rows or body rows. Why not add some automatic text (paragraph prefix) to those "remembered" paragraph styles? This technique allows you to insert a table with 2 mouse clicks, and have your header row automatically filled in with the text you desire. Let Adobe product evangelist Maxwell Hoffmann show you how simple it is to accomplish: you can do it too!

FrameMaker and Word: Tables with Automatic Artwork (Cautions)
FrameMaker 11 "remembers" which paragraph style is in each column of a table when you create or update the table style. This includes paragraph styles that have artwork form the Reference Page. Using these two features in tandem, you can easily create a two-column "CAUTION" box table that will place CAUTION artwork to the side of your text. Since the CAUTION arwork is invoked from the reference page, you can change it there once and update all instances of the CAUTION used in a new table. This allows (a) swift and easy authoring with consistent results and (b) the ability to globally update all instances of a particular segregated caution statement. With WORD, considerable effort would be required to plant consistent artwork in all instances of such a table.
