Subject: FrameMaker 10 Interface/Accessibility questions

I suspect I'm out of luck on these, but it doesn't hurt to ask:

Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit

1.       When I am reconciling index entries, I keep all the individual book 
files open in separate undocked windows, which keeps them from opening in the 
primary workspace as I edit a zillion index markers. With 10-20 windows open, 
it becomes difficult to know which window is the currently active chapter 
(sometimes I need to open that window a bit larger to check context of a 
marker) because there is ZERO color difference between active and inactive 
windows. I have not found any way to make the active file window stand out from 
all the others. This appears to be a Framemaker issue rather than Windows, as 
all Aero effects are disabled on windows generated within FrameMaker

2.       I need the i-frame text position indicator (cursor) within the 
document (not the hovering cursor that moves as you move your mouse) to be more 
prominent on the screen. I frequently lose track of where I am, and have to 
either hit up and down arrows to see where the text indicator is moving. 
Ideally there would be a way to set the color, thickness, and blink frequency 
for it, for no other reason than aiding accessibility.

Thanks in advance.
