FrameMaker and WORD: Time-saving Cross Reference Tricks
FrameMaker and WORD: Time-saving Cross Reference Tricks
Cross references (xrefs) are a hallmark of long, complex FrameMaker techcom documents. Unfortunately, not all FM users have discovered the handy, optional "pods" that can appear at the bottom of your workspace. The Cross Reference pod is extremely useful for display previously hidden meta-data associated with your xrefs. For instance, you can view all xrefs in all open documents, of filter your view to only display external xrefs, or unresolved (broken) xrefs. This brief video takes you through a complete tour of the tools at your disposal in the indispensable cross reference pod.

FrameMaker and WORD: Table Title and Pagination Options
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: Anchored Frames in Outer Margins
FrameMaker and WORD: Anchored Frames in Outer Margins
FrameMaker 11 has many options for controlling placement of anchored frames. This brief video examines just one popular option: placing graphics in the outer page margin of two sided page layouts. Not only are the steps simple, you can preserve all of your values in a Graphic Object Style and tag other anchored frames to behave the same way. Once you have done this, you can simply update the definition for an anchored frame object style and have all frames of the same name globally update in an identical fashion. This can be a HUGE timesaver, especially in language translation projects.

FrameMaker and WORD: Change View Options for all files in Book
FrameMaker 11's powerful book feature can also be used to do something quite simple. In this case, visual document display housekeeping.

This can be disconcerting for whomever does final edits on the book level. Watch this very brief video to see how easy it is to select all book content and set view options to be the same for all chapters or documents.

FrameMaker and WORD: Convert Graphics via Smart Paste
FrameMaker and WORD: Convert Graphics via Smart Paste
You can easily import a Word document into unstructured FrameMaker format by simply opening the Word file in FrameMaker. One shortcoming is that the graphics embedded in Word will come over as embedded graphics in FrameMaker; this makes your files larger and you cannot edit the graphics. The Smart Paste command in structured FrameMaker may be used to swiftly convert selected Word graphics into referenced graphics. In this brief video, Adobe Product Evangelist, Maxwell Hoffmann (@maxwellhoffmann) shows you the simple steps to accomplish this. You are actually just using a temporary DITA Topic files as a placeholder to allow the file conversion to take place via smart paste. Try it; it's easy!

FrameMaker and WORD: Find Specific Text Format Overrides
FrameMaker and WORD: Find Specific Text Format Overrides
FrameMaker 11's powerful FIND command also lets you narrow down your search to just a few font/format ovverrides. In this brief video, Adobe Product Evangelist @maxwellhoffmann shows you how to use the FIND/Character Format option to search for 3 things, like bold/italic/small caps. The secret is in putting all of your FIND character format choices to "As Is" or "neutral." Then, you can select the 2 or 3 things that you know are distinctive about the text you seek. Once we find the overriden format, we swiftly apply the character tag Default Para Font (to remove all overrides) and then apply the "Emphasis" tag, to enable global font updates. Try this, it is easy to do.

FrameMaker for Word: Insert Landscape Pages Next to Numbered Headings
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: Landscape pages in Portrait documents [in depth]
FrameMaker for Word: Landscape pages in Portrait documents [in depth]
Adobe Certified Trainer Barb Binder takes you through the simple steps of creating and using landscape pages mixed in a portrait oriented document. Unlike Microsoft Word, FrameMaker uses master pages, not section breaks. This eliminates a host of problems experienced by Word users when section breaks are adjacent to complex numbered headings or lists. You can either allow pagination to go through the FrameMaker landscape page, or around the landscape page.

Kenneth Risdon: Adobe FrameMaker Saves the Day
Kenneth Risdon: Adobe FrameMaker Saves the Day
In this STC/Adobe interview, Risdon describes a 1,000 page project that had 50 different scientists contributing and was a year overdue. The conversion to FrameMaker "saved" the project by providing sturdy document structure and many features not found in competitive products. Microsoft Word was rejected because the 1,000 page content cause major problems with swapping order and updating massive cross references and index entries.
