I saw this question in light different from replies so far. I rely on FrameMaker itself for 2D drawings. Is this possibly overlooked? I am unaware of better graphics tools for many purposes. I followed the thread hoping to see remarks on progress with the FrameMaker tools in newer versions. v5.5.6 is good enough for what I do as a construction contractor, I think. But, I try to understand what I might be missing without upgrades. Among other tasks, I draw objects onto photos, often from Snagit capture of satellite images, Google Maps, or city databases. I like having drawings live within my FrameMaker documents (bids, contracts and more).
I don't find comparable tools in InDesign or any other Adobe software. Do we have anything to discuss about evolution of the FrameMaker graphics tool-set? I am a loyal List follower, but very rarely post. I hope this comes up ok.
