FrameMaker for Word: Calculate Sidehead Savings
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!
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]
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.

How many times have you had to correct random numbering "mishaps" within nested lists and autonumbered headings in Word?

Warning: once you use this feature in FrameMaker 11, there's no turning back.
