I have not used Maker, but if you open the CDS feature to edit
(Edit->Selected Features in Editor) Artemis provides a codon_start (values
1,2 or 3) which can be used to define the frame the CDS appears in.

When you select File->Save As->GFF format there is an option in the save
dialog to flatten the gene model. Try unselecting that.
