Hi, I fully agree with Mike. I use FrameMaker since version 3, and I use many of the shortcuts. I really prefer the new GUI to the old one.
Regarding making text unconditional in FrameMaker 12: It's difficult. When you want to _change_ the condition state you want to set it to On or Off. However, if you have a few conditions and started to change something, and then you notice that you should not change one of the conditions, then you you should be able to set it to "As Is". However, this "As Is" state is really confusing. I tested FrameMaker 12 in my virtual machine, and when I clicked on the On/As Is/Off check box, the check box got hidden (my virtual machine's fault), and I did not notice that it changed to "As Is" instead of "Off". I did not understand why nothing happened when I clicked "Apply" ... Generally I think that the check boxes are better than the radio buttons in FrameMaker 11.

I'm happy with them. And the new interface, in my opinion, is a big improvement over the old FM 7 interface. I like it so much better. And you can customize your workspaces. You may want to check out this video for an overview of using the new interface (as of FM 9). I found it very helpful in making the switch way back then: http://tv.adobe.com/watch/tips-and-tricks-for-technical-communicators-to-maximize-productivity/getting-started-with-the-new-framemaker-9-user-interface/ You may also want to check out message #35 in the following thread, for screen captures and descriptions of an example custom workspace I use. It fits everything on one screen and works really well for me: http://forums.adobe.com/message/4039348 Mike Wickham On 3/29/2014 6:08 PM, Zimmerman, Gary wrote: I swear it's like the Adobe FrameMaker developers do absolutely NO usability testing, get absolutely NO feedback from existing customers, focus groups, or anything else before they foist on us a crappy, untested GUI that their offshore developers implemented in some kind of cultural vacuum. ________________________________ This e-mail contains privileged and confidential information intended for the use of the addressees named above.
