    How do I create relative links in a Framemaker document that is output to PDF, which links to an Excel file? My client is asking for a link in the PDF to an Excel file that will reside somewhere on their directory. I want a relative path that will allow for the destination Excel file to be moved, so that the hyperlink to it will not break. An absolute link is too risky.

    Hi everyone,

     

    I have master pages for my table of contents, and there is a right master page and a left master page. In the master page (aside from fancy headers/footers) there is just a text frame located on the page where the table of contents should be located.

     

    Now - when I generate the table of contents, I get the TOC information, but it looks like it is creating a text frame lying on top of the text frame from the master page?? (There are definitely two text frames on top of each other.) This appears to be why my TOC master page mapping is not working.

     

    Doesn't the TOC master page need the text frame to know where the text should go?? I am clearly doing something wrong here. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    Hi,

     

    I was trying to run a script to extract all Paragraphs in a fm file with a specific tag name and I could see that I did not extract texts for many paragraphs.

     

    However when I saved the fm file as a mif file, and on running my script hereafter I was able to extract all paragraphs including paragraphs that were hidden.

     

    Please let me know why is there such a difference between running on a FM file and a MIF File.

    Secondly, If i were to update the MIF files with new paragraphs (and text ), could I save it as an FM file and use it interchangably.

     

    Thanks,

    Sebin

        while (pgf.ObjectValid()){

     

            if (pgf.Name == 'Specific_Par_Name')

            {  

                 count += 1;

                 var test = pgf.GetText(Constants.FTI_String );

    I have tried almost everything to resolve this issue, which is preventing me from doing anything other than editing files using Framemaker 2015. When I attempt to generate a PDF from a book, I get the same message in a pop up. The document(s) contain linked Powerpoint and imported tiff images. On opening, I see the popup unavailable fonts message for any document I have created.

     

    I have installed/reinstalled/removed/installed the offending font at least 4 times, but have not been able to resolve this issue.

     

    Could this problem be related to my use of Arial fonts in the linked Powerpoint slides?

     

    It has been YEARS since I used Framemaker, so; I will call me a novice with a deadline on Friday! Please help.

     

    Thanks, in advance...

    Hi.

     

    FM2015 occasionally crashes while I save .fm file as .rtf (About 5 or 6 time in 10).

     

    When it finishes the conversion, the rtf file size goes well over 800MB, even though the .fm size is about 1.64MB.

     

    Question 1)

    Is there any know bag fix about FM2015 crashing while saving as rtf?

         * I found a topic with same problem with FM12 but not FM2015...

     

    Question 2)

    Is there any way around to make the rtf file size smaller?

    If it was Office word, there is a registry key to add to avoid rtf becoming massive.

     

    Thank you for your help in advance!!

  • 02/15/17--04:44: JPEG and FM 2015
  • Importing Jpegs into FM does not work. They show broken or ragged or not at all. No problems with Tifs resulting in very heavy documents. Any solution?

    I found yet THREE more other features you all have removed---as a FrameMaker user of 20+ years---I am not happy. I rely on FrameMaker's fast and quick features to do my job. I run several different departments for different companies (all of which I have had them purchase FrameMaker each time, thousands of dollars)----now you are removing features have helped make my job so fast, making us have to do more clicks than necessary, etc.

     

    I would like someone to contact me, as this is a serious issue here---I am considering returning the product for each company and moving to MadCap Flare---you cannot just remove all of our features? Another list of features we need PUT BACK PLEASE:

     

    • I constantly use Variables, and having the Edit Variable window stay up the whole time (until I choose to close it) enables us to quickly go through each one & change them fast---now I can't? You make it so I have to constantly double-click for each one now? Hassle. Bring back the ability for us to keep it open?

     

    • Page Break window = This used to be able to be "docked" into the little pod that we can keep open---now I cannot do this? I use this a lot and do not want to go to the menu for something that I can do in 1 click.
    • Graphics toolbar = I used to be able to put this into my main top toolbar----now I cannot do that, it only allows me to put
      it on the sides. Why in the world would they even think about removing this feature? I don't have room on the sides for this---it must remain in my top toolbar.

     

    You need to check with us users before just removing super important word processing features? Someone needs to contact me ASAP---I am scared to think of what else you have removed? I don't even see how this new version is any better at all, so far, it seems us users have lost.

    Hi,

     

    Based on a specific paragraph tag, I would like to add an existing variable (Name and Fmt) as part of the paragraph's text. I am able to add strings as part of paragraph texts at the moment.

     

    I was looking up extend scripts to do this, however I am quite not sure how to add a variable. I could only find instances of updating variable values and so on.

     

    Any help would be appreciated.

     

    Giving a brief overview of my intention: (For example; Variable = "Part Number: 0x404"

     

                                var newpgf = doc.NewSeriesObject(Constants.FO_Pgf, pgf);

                                var attribute= doc.GetNamedObject(Constants.FO_VarFmt, "Variable");

               

                                var textLoc = new TextLoc();

                                textLoc.obj = newpgf;

                                textLoc.offset = -1;

     

     

                             

                                                                   doc.AddText(textLoc, "( ");

                                                                             

    Something like this:                            -> doc.AddText(textLoc, attribute.Fmt);       // Not Sure how to do this, possibly link the variable text range to this Text Location?

                                                                   doc.AddText(textLoc, " )");               

     

    Expected Paragraph:

                                                 <Previous Para>

              new Para:                    (Part Number: 0x404 )

     

     

     

    Thanks,

    I'm currently working for a client in developing and improving their documentation. The project requires an authoring tool that allows you to format documents, organize graphics, and generate HTML5 output. The client wants the final draft as a responsive HTML5 page.

     

    I started working on that project using Adobe FrameMaker 2017 a few days ago. I formatted some of the documents and inserted lots of diagrams.

     

    As part of the project, I need to link all the diagram parts to external documents (Word, Excel, etc.). The client wants the external documents to open in a new window after clicking the link instead of just downloading them. In my experience, if you click the link to a PPT, Word, etc. it will automatically be downloaded.  I tried using Hotspot to add multiple links to the diagram, but it didn't give me an option to link to external documents. I may be wrong, but I think hotspot only worked for links within the source document or within a page of a website. To test the other links, I've generated a responsive HTML5 page.

     

    While reviewing the HTML5 page, I noticed that some of the links are not working (especially the diagram links).  I checked my FM files again and tested the links, and found out that all the links are working properly. Therefore I conclude that this problem arises every time I generate the HTML 5.

     

    Here are my questions:

     

    • Is it possible to link an image to external documents and open the link in a new window? If yes, what are the steps?
    • Why do some links didn't work after generating responsive HTML5?
    • Does generating a responsive HTML5 remove or retain the links?
    • Is it possible to maintain the quality of the image after generating a responsive HTML5?

     

    Thanks,

    Bonjour,

    Nous souhaiterions  acheter une licence Framemaker mais nous sommes sur un réseau isolé.

    Je sais qu'il y a une procédure pour claquer la licence la première fois mais comment faire si on veut transférer la licence sur une nouvelle machine (traitement obsolescence par exemple) ?

    Est-ce possible sans repayer une licence ?

    Merci d'avance

    I am using a trial version of FrameMaker 2017. It appears that WebHelp, which I was using for context-sensitive help in FrameMaker 2015 did not make the cut. I want to create the same context-sensitive Help project using FrameMaker 2017's Responsive HTML5 Help publisher but can't find the Header file (.h). I want to use the same mapping as I did in the 2015 version.

    Thanks for your help!

  • 03/15/17--20:53: delete paragraph format
  • It must have been changed in Framemaker 2017, but I don't see the option to delete a paragraph format where it used to be in FM 12. Where is delete paragraph format now located? Thanks.

    Hi,

    We currently moved to FM 2015 and have our User Guide there. But we need to save the book in FM 11 version to make use of the plug-in that is compatible only with FM versions prior to FM12. How can I save my FM 2015 book in version 11 without any major issues (e.g., bunch of unresolved cross-references)? I will appreciate any feedback!

     

    Thanks,

    Oksana

    Hi,

     

    I noticed that after one traversal of all paragraphs as given by function 1, framemaker gets stuck and maybe due to that I am unable to execute the while loop in the second function. ($.writeln("CHECK2"); doesn;t get executed)

     

    Please let me know if I am missing out on closing some dangling variables etc. I have attached the code as well.

     

    Thanks,

    My books contain multiple documents/chapters. Each one has variables in the footer for Issue and Amend . All variables start out with the values Issue = 1, Amend = 0. If a chapter gets updated, only the variables in that document/chapter get updated to reflect the new values, i.e. Chapters 1-2 might but Issue 1, Amend 0; Chapter 3 = Issue 1 Amend 1, Chapter 4 = Issue 1 Amend 2, Chapter 5 = Issue 1 Amend 0, and so forth. I want to compile an abbreviated List of Effective Pages that pulls in:

     

    Chapter 1 Issue 1 Amend 0

    Chapter 2 Issue 1 Amend 0

    Chapter 3 Issue 1 Amend 1

    Chapter 4 Issue 1 Amend 2

    Chapter 5 Issue 1 Amend 0

    Chapter 6 Issue 1 Amend 2

    Chapter 7 Issue 1 Amend 0

     

    If I start from the LOEP document and look in the Variables pod, I can select the different documents from the drop-down list, can see and select the variables with their different values from each file, but when I click Insert, FM inserts the selected variable into the cursor position in the source file, not the LOEP file! I've even tried copying the variable inserted in the source document footer and pasting into the LEOP file (which also has an Issue and Amend variable), but when I update, the pasted variables take on the value of the LEOP file, not the source.

     

    Where am I going wrong or is this not possible with FrameMaker? Am I going to have to fall back on cross-refs and paragraph tags, like you do with total book page count?
