Hi Jim,

I am not able to reproduce the issue. What workspace are you using? Can you 
send me the frame file and steps which you are performing?

Regards,
Megha

Hi, Megha,

FWIW and to add what may be a slightly new wrinkle to #2: I'm using FM 9
in TCS 2, with the latest patch, and XP SP 2, and I find that when I
toggle in and out of the UI that I do not come back to the spot in the
chapter where I was working. Instead, I land at the end of the chapter
and have to find my way back. Any suggestions?

Jim

Hi Oran,

Regarding your points, 

1. I cannot get the Paragraph Formatting tool bar Tab icons to work. On
earlier versions I could drag them onto the ruler to add new tabs. While
I can move existing tabs on the ruler, I cannot seem to add new with the
icons. The tab icons seem inoperative, as I cannot make to do anything
through dragging, double-click, etc. I do see the "New Tab Stop" text in
the paragraph designer flicker when I click an icon, but nothing else
happens . 


<Megha> To add a tab stop, click a tab stop symbol from Paragraph Format
toolbar and click the desired position below the top ruler. Refer to
FrameMaker 9 user guide , page 43.


2. If I use the "Screen Mode" icon to select? "Full Screen Mode" the
menus correctly disappear. So far the only way I have found to get back
out of that mode is to close and reopen the file using keyboard
shortcuts. (Ctrl-W) I cannot find a keyboard shortcut or key to get back
out, and menu is gone of course. What is interesting is that re-opening
the file gives you the menus back, but "Screen Mode" remains in "Full
Screen Mode" (checkmark) even though it is not. 

<Megha> To change the screen mode :
-> Right click on the grey area outside document window, then choose
Toggle Screen Mode from the context menu.
->You can use the following keyboard shortcuts :
    Esc S M s for standard screen mode.  
    Esc S M u for full screen with user interface.
    Esc SM f for full screen.
    Esc SM t to toggle screen mode.


Regards,
Megha

I am using TCS2 with Frame 9 with the patch on XP SP3. 

For me the new user interface seems a little confusing and inconsistent
in how it works, but I am figuring out most of it by experimentation and
trial & error. The Help file is mostly worthless. Seems they forgot to
update it for the new interface and icons in many cases. 



Two UI items however, escape me.

With respect to "Recent Items" on the splash screen and "File>History" I
find expected behavior both before and after installing the patch. Seems
to work OK for me.

Right-click, then choose Toggle Screen Mode from the context menu.

wincmds.cfg lists these shortcuts:
    Esc S M s for standard screen mode.
    Esc S M u for full screen with user interface.
    Esc SM f for full screen.
    Esc SM t to toggle screen mode.
However, none of these shortucts works for me-- only the right-click and
Toggle Screen Mode.

You may want to check out the video at this link: 
http://my.adobe.acrobat.com/p17912987/. It explains a lot about the user
interface.
