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.
Our www.douwriteright.com calculator enables you to see savings calculated for FrameMaker advantages over Word. In this video, we "zero out" all categories in the calculator and just enter reasonable values for sideheads on several large projects. We explore how sideheads are commonly created via Tables in Word, and the problems that method leads to. Then we do work with the exact same document content and formatting in FrameMaker to demonstrate how "fool proof" sideheads are, even with numbered headings. As you can see, the savings with sideheads in FrameMaker over Word are considerable. Try it for yourself!
