Hi Gillian, Fred, and Art, They know about Acrobat and its capabilities, but they want to do it in the source. FM8's track changes feature has only two colors: red strikeout for deleted text and green underline for added text. Other than that, it works fine.
Adobe's ads and the FM8 user's guide are a bit misleading. They call colored text "highlighting." Well, maybe in a generic sense, but it's what most people consider highlighting. What they are looking for is a way to identify different people who make edits to the same file. Word does that well (but not much else :-) Fred Ridder's idea about using conditional text might work. We'd just have to set up some tags with different colors. But Art's idea of a set of character tags might be the easiest way to go. Very easy to return to the original color by pressing F8. Ctrl-A - F8 - Enter would clean up a whole chapter in 5 seconds. I'll let the guys in Japan know. They don't have FM8 yet. Some of them don't have FM at all. The transition from Word to FM is going to be really interesting, I think. Thanks everybody.

Diane, In Acrobat you can do that. Just make a PDF for them and they can mark that up. Or they can use the track changes feature in Frame 8.0.

Hello FrameFriends, We are switching from Word to FM (some of us are already using FM8), but my colleagues in Japan still want to be able to highlight things like they do in Word. (Old habits are hard to break, I guess.) So - I'm looking for an FM plug-in that will let you highlight text. Thanks in advance for any information you can provide.
