FrameMaker and Word: Style Catalogs; globally update paras, text, tables, even graphics
About This Episode
Word's style catalogs don't obviously segregate text styles from paragraph styles. FrameMaker 11 provides simple, logical catalogs for paragraphs, character styles, table styles and even graphic object styles. In FrameMaker 11, not only can you globally update headings, lists and emphasized text, you can even change all instances of named tables, labeled anchored frames or graphic objects! This allows you a level of formatting control and document consistency amongst multiple authors you could have only dreamed of with Word. Warning: once you use these tools, there is no turning back.
