FrameMaker 11's powerful automatic numbering is not always used to it's full potential. Most users use one paragraph to start or restart a numbered list, and another paragraph style for the subsequent numbers, like 2, 3, 4, etc. In this brief video, Adobe Product Evangelist Maxwell Hoffmann shows you how to use a simple label and a special counter in an introductory paragraph or heading, that will automatically set the first item of a following, associated list to "1". You have to see the video to fully grasp this powerful, yet simple technique. This method can save you hours of re-tagging paragraphs if you need to reorder the items in your lists.
Linking FrameMaker files as source into RoboHelp projects is easy. However, you may hit a glitch if you decide to change fonts for lists; if the CSS style was based on formatting in FrameMaker, you may need an extra step to fix the number's font when you change fonts for list items. Adobe Certified Expert, Matt Sullivan, shows the simple steps required to correct this issue in a brief video. Bookmark this one, it is a great reference!
