Because you are posting this question to frameusers, I assume you are using Framemaker as your authoring tool. ? You can do this in several ways: If the graphics don't require additional editting, in Frame you can open the Graphics tools, select the anchored frame, select the Pen Pattern in the Graphics icons and set it to whatever color you like. You can set the line width from the Graphics tools as well. ? If there is some additional work to be done to the graphics in Illustrator, Photoshop, or Corel, you can create a rectangle, larger than you graphic, and then position the graphic within the rectangle.

I have some line drawings of our product to include in a small hardware guide. I want to outline the illustrations in a heavier line, but I don't know how to do it in a simple, efficient, competent way. Are there any tech illustrators here who are willing to let me in on their secret? I have access to Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, and Corel Paintshop Pro.
