Hi,

I'm new to submitting questions/issues to this list but, hopefully, this is
the way to start.  (If it's not, I know somebody will let me know.)
My questions is this: Is there a way to globally update markers in a
FrameMaker document?  I use FM 6.0.

Thanks,
Ed Lightle

If you have software that can open an old Microsoft
.WDB file (circa 2000), would you please contact me
off-list?  We no longer have the software on any of
our PCs, and there's some document history information
that we want to retain.  Even a text-dump would
suffice.

Thanks,

Message-ID: <p06020412bfa904410fc3@[192.168.0.4]>
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"

Sarah O'Keefe and Sheila Loring's excellent FrameMaker 7 'complete
reference' book gives a method for setting up bleed tabs (thumbtabs) that
requires manual deletion of unnecessary tabs (i.e. all but the current
chapter) in production edit. Within structured FrameMaker, is there a way of
automating this? 

What is needed is a means of rendering objects visible/invisible depending
on their chapter number. Perhaps some way of making conditional tags
sensitive to their context in the book...?

Another approach I've tried is to include a rotated B flow flush to the page
edge and insert the bleed tabs as conditionalised anchored frames. This
allows tabs to be turned on and off with conditions,  but I don't like these
objects being on body pages, and it doesn't get round the issue of making
them sensitive to chapter number.

Failing that, I guess it could be done using the feature for mapping master
pages to paragraphs, but I cannot see it working out very elegantly, as one
would have to hack some sort of 'hidden' mapping between chapter number and
paragraph tags.

Any ideas, anyone?

Dear Framers:

Frame 7.1, Windows XP Pro

I am tweaking my first EDD (using the Structured Application
Developer's Guide) to get the levels and spacing right with list items
(LI) in ordered lists (OL) and unordered lists (UL) and various nested
combinations thereof, including depending on whether the list is
compact or non-compact.  I am very pleased with what I have figured
out so far, it's working well, except for one thing:  If I have an OL
nested in a LI in an OL, the LI that follows the nested OL picks up
that OL's numbering, thus:

6.  Item a
7.  Item b

     a.  item A
     b.  item B
     c.  item C

4.  Item c
5.  ...

It doesn't happen with unordered lists.  My level rules seem fine, and
they work if they are not interrupted by a nested OL.  I don't know
where else to look; can you point me to places I could investigate? 
Thanks so much.  This list is invaluable.  Sorry I can't provide
answers yet, but I'm learning a lot.

I know that MS has a list of incompatible 32-bit applications, but the
list is by no means complete.

And, by happenstance, Adobe just released their FM tech notes document
for the month today. One of the documents is "Troubleshooting
Installation Problems." No mention of 64 being a special case.

Thank you for your kind replies.  As I said, this is my first EDD and
there's a lot I don't know so please bear with me.  I set up the
numbering in the EDD (I want to minimize the available elements, and
instead have the properties governed by where they appear):

If level is 1:
...
If context is: {first}
   Numbering properties
      Autonumber format: <n=1>.\t
Else
   Numbering properties
      Autonumber format: <n+>.\t

Else, if level is: 2
   If context is: ul
      Numbering properties
         Autonumber format: \b\t
Else
   If context is: {first}
      Numbering properties
         Autonumber format: <a=1>.\t
Else
   Numbering properties
      Autonumber format: <a+>.\t

There's more to it, of course.  There is no opportunity in the EDD
won't let me put in a letter with a colon, n: or a:.  Hope this helps.

I'm doing it the EDD way so that no matter where a LI occurs, it will
be formatted correctly depending on where it is: numbered, bulleted,
first, middle, table (haven't figured that one out yet, had to create
a new element and para format), etc.

You can include the number or letter followed by a colon, you simply
type the desired text into the EDD as content of the "Autonumber Format"
element.

However, I believe that you really want instead of designating these
items as different numbering series (which is what the A: or N: do) you
should include an EmptyCounter building block (will display as < > )
before your existing counter.  One empty counter should be used for each
level of nesting, so a second-level list (first nested list)  has one, a
third level list has two, etc.

For example:

If level is 1:
    ...
  If context is: {first}
    Numbering properties
       Autonumber format: <n=1>.\t
  Else
    Numbering properties
       Autonumber format: <n+>.\t

 Else, if level is: 2
    If context is: ul
       Numbering properties
          Autonumber format: \b\t
    Else
       If context is: {first}
          Numbering properties
             Autonumber format: < ><a=1>.\t
    Else
       Numbering properties
          Autonumber format: < ><a+>.\t
