FrameMaker 12: map page layout to first paragraph style
Show: FrameMaker 12 Features
FrameMaker 12 (and earlier versions) allow you to easily map master page layouts to specific paragraph styles. This is particularly useful if you have content like large tech diagrams that required landscape orientation. Watch this brief video to discover examples in new FM12 templates which show you how to have a landscape layout automatically "float" through paginations, pinned to a specific paragraph style.
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 for WORD: "Dictionary" Page Header/Footers
Running Headers and Footers are easy to create in FrameMaker 11. YOu simply insert system variables on the master page to display the first instance of a paragraph style. With a simple modification to the definition of a H/F system variable, you can also have your master page display the LAST instance of a paragraph style. Combining these two types of variables empowers you to swiftly create "dictionary" headers, which show the FIRST and LAST instance of text from a paragraph style at the top of your page. Adobe Product Evangelist Maxwell Hoffmann (@maxwellhoffmann) shows you how!
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.
