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: Shrinkwrap for "autosized" anchored frames
This video shows how to combine two commands (a) keyboard shortcut "ESC m p" to automatically shrinkwrap your anchored frame around the size of graphic contents and (b) Object Style Designer to create a "named frame" that has the vertical baseline adjustment you desire. This is ideal for projects in which you have a lot of small screen captures for "key caps" on the baseline of your text. In this very brief video, Product Evangelist, Maxwell Hoffmann (@maxwellhoffmann) shows you how.
