The FrameMaker 8 keyboard shortcut issue is particularly frustrating. It's not just F9; it's all of the ctrl/F[0-9] shortcuts (element operations, conditional text, variables, character and paragraph formats). Using these shortcuts can dramatically improve a writer's productivity using FrameMaker, and minimize reliance on the mouse.
In FM8, the shortcuts "time out", at an apparently random interval. Often the shortcut time-out is almost immediate. These keyboard shortcuts are nearly unusable in FM8. I would also be interested in hearing whether anybody does _not_ experience this problem with FrameMaker 8, or if there is a work-around. -Alan Diane Gaskill wrote: > Hi Greg, > > Yes, it was free. :-) But they did not fix everything.
