    I am trying to add a footer and a background image that I can type over on the Title page. However, when I navigate to Master pages, it does not include the Title page and only allows me to add a footer and the background image to the following page. How can I set this up for the Title page of the document? I have already tried Format > Page Layout > New Master Page. It creates a border on the Title page but when I go to Master Pages, the Title page is still not included and I cannot add the footer or background image.

    Good morning,


    Has anyone figured out how to subscript a letter without using a character tag?


    I've been able to superscript numbers without character tags by using ANSI codes, but I cannot find ANSI codes that would allow me to subscript letters.


    Thank you,

  • 05/02/18--00:54: TOC in a Volume page
  • Hi All


    I have a book with 20 chapters or so, and I have to add volume pages to group some of them to divide the book in 3 or 4 sections with 5 chapters per section (more or less).


    In each volume page I want to add some kind of TOC listing only the chapters in the volume and theirs titles, but with a standalone TOC it shows all the chapters and titles in the whole book, and with a miniTOC it shows only the volume page contents.


    Is there a proper way to do this task other than using one standalone TOCs per volume and playing with the chapter styles to show only certain chapters information?


    Thanks a lot for your time

  • 05/02/18--12:43: Hidden Table Properies
  • Hi All,


    I have probably asked this question before, but the issue has come up again. When you insert a table in FrameMaker, there are "default" paragraph formats for each column in Header, Body, and Footer rows in the table. In the MIF TblCatalog, they look like this:


    ...<TblCatalog <TblFormat   <TblTag `Format A'>  <TblColumn    <TblColumnNum 0>   <TblColumnWidth  1.0">   <TblColumnH     <PgfTag `CB_CellHeading'>   > # end of TblColumnH   <TblColumnBody     <PgfTag `CB_CellBody'>   > # end of TblColumnBody


    You can see them in the <PgfTag entries in this snippet. Are these properties exposed anywhere in the FDK? I don't think they are, but if not, I wonder why? It sure would be handy to be able to change them programmatically. Thanks in advance.

    We recendly upgraded from FM 11 to FM2017 and I'm getting extremely frustrated with anchored frames. In FM11 we used Anchored Frames to insert images into our documents. There is no consistent size with the images - some have their DPI set to 120, some to 200, some to 800. In FM2017, the DPI seems to be attached to the Anchored Frame, which results in all of our images being resized to fit the default anchored frame size. This was never an issue in FM11 - how do we stop FM2017 from enforcing this horrible function. This is causing us to manually resize close to 500 images in just one document alone. There must be a way to stop this from happening every time we update the styles.

    Every time I click on a Text insert in a document, the paragraph style for alI the text in the insert is changed to the first paragraph style used in the insert, e.g. if the first line of text has a Header-style, all the text in the insert is changed to that style.

  • How to textframe alignment changing from top to bottom in framemaker using extendscript?

    Please can someone help, I am having problems inserting a cross reference.

    I am using Structred Framemaker version 10.

    I have gone to the element that I want to use for the cross reference and selected Assign ID to element. I know it does assign an element as I did this twice and it prompted me that one was already assigned and did I want to replace it.

    Then, when I click the text that I want to use to refer to this section and select the Special menu – Cross reference, the ID is not displayed in Element data list in the Dita Cross-Reference dialog: What am I doing wrong?

    While working with my settings file for an HTML5 output, I wanted to make a few basic changes to the template layout (font/header color). I output to test the changes, and nothing changed.


    I went back in, made the changes again, and then opened these settings to see if they "took," and the options displayed the default settings.


    Any ideas for what is blocking my modifications from saving?

    Thank you.

    I have a chapter in my FrameMaker file that ends on page 21. When I save my book as PDF, the last page for this chapter ends on page 20 and page 21 is a blank page. As far as I can tell, the pagination is set to single sided, and the option to delete empty pages is selected.


    Would this be an issue with the FrameMaker file or book, or the PDF settings?

  • 05/07/18--06:50: Tables with big cells
  • Hi there. Sorry my poor English


    I have some tables with very big rows. It seems Framemaker cuts the table when there is no room in the current page and preserves entire rows. Due to this feature some pages renders almost empty (it shows some rows and the big one is in the next page).


    Is there any chance to fix this?


    Thanks a lot for your time.

    How do I preview FrameMaker thumbnails in Windows Explorer? We have a lot of text insets and need to preview them before we import them. Alt+P didn't work. Is there a setting somewhere? I can see Word, Excel and PDF previews, but not FrameMaker.

    How to display top and bottom view in individual page using textframe with zoom for framemaker using extendscript ?

    All of a sudden, my system (Win 7, 64 bit, Build 1709) is now unable to create a postscript file using the Print to File option with the Adobe Printer selected. Although I  have not changed any Adobe PDF printer settings since the cows came home, the message that I am receiving is the long forgotten and improperly worded issue about relying on system fonts and not using document fonts:


    When you create a PS file, you must rely on system fonts and use document fonts. Please go to printer properties, "Adobe PDF Settings" page and turn OFF the option "Rely on system fonts only; do not use document fonts."


    I went and checked and in BOTH places where this option should be TURNED ON is indeed turned on. (Adobe PDF Printing Preferences and Adobe PDF Printer Properties > Advanced > Printing Default.)


    I have had this option checked in both places on multiple systems (Win 7, Win 10) for both FM 10 and 13 and now, all of a sudden, this single Windows 10 system on which the function has been working for over a year has jst  cr*pped out for no apparent reason.


    I can still Save as PDF and I can print to a PDF but as we all know, being able to print to a PS file and then distill it is much more advantageous for certain FM books/files. Any/all thoughts are sincerely appreciated.
