Hello Kristy,

I would check that there are no other EDD rules imposing particular formats on the selected element.

To review the element formatting, select FrameMaker menu item: StructureTools > Show Element Context... ; FrameMaker 11 will display the "Show Element Context" pane, against which you can select each of the parent elements in the Element Hierarchy, and review the Format Rules that are being applied.

Sadly, I find the "Show Element Context" dialog to be rather useless, as the Format Rules section of the dialog is a mere 222 pixels wide [regardless of the size of the pane dock] which truncates any text that you would normally see in full glory in the EDD file, and the mouse-over text of each rule is just as useless, being truncated with a suffix of '...'. I hope that Adobe people will consider making the panes resizeable.

Hi, fellow Framers –

I am working on cleaning up our EDD for our manuals, Frame 11. We have 3 types of alerts (note, caution, warning) that pretty much follow the same rules, so are set up the same as much as possible. I have the caution and warning doing exactly what I need them to do with Autonumber Format as “Caution:” or “Warning:” and the Character Format as “Bold Underline.” Since I am trying to match (where possible) our Arbortext DTD and styles, I need the “Note:” to be just Bold.

However, the bold is not showing up. I can change it to everything else, including Bold DoubleUnderline or Blue, and it displays as prescribed. Just not plain bold. Spacing all works, nesting/indenting works fine. What can I be missing?

Also, if you are good at table format structuring and are willing to answer questions, I am having trouble with those. Right now those are still just done in my template through table designer with only the very basic set up in the EDD.
