Hi, I want to use hypertext commands in the header of a special FM document. They will allow me to open books, software, URLs without clicking elsewhere. I would like to organize these commands using submenus.
Now my problem. I can have only 1 submenu and it must be at the top of the menu. Under it there can be commands directly, but if there is a submenu with commands they appear and open but on click do nothing (the commands work individually if they are clicked directly on the reference page). Here is the precise situation: On my Master page I have the word Language with the hypertext command Popup menu to popup flow Language (on Reference page). Emacs! The flow Language had three Popup commands (submenus) to distinct flows - Dictionary, Grammar, and Translation. Each of these flows have commands to open documents or go to URLs. The 3 submenus all display - see image. The commands in the Dictionaries flow display and all work. For the other 2 flows the commands they contain are displayed but when I click on any one of them they do not work. I tried using a graphic to define the active area instead of the word Language, to no avail. I have searched FrameMaker user forum and knowledgebase without success. Any ideas Framers? Does anyone out there have several submenus and their commands all work? Thanks for your ideas!
