Hi Corinne, If your requirements aren't too extraordinary (e.g. open menus, hidden content, delayed capture), you can also use the common PRINT or ALT+PRINT shortcut and paste the screenshot from the clipboard into your favorite graphics software (CTRL+v). There you can do whatever you wanted

Opening book files without opening the book

I am currently working with a couple of other people who are new to framemaker. I've been using frame for a bit over two years on a near daily basis. I use the practice of always opening a frame book before editing individual files within that book. My concern is that by working in an individual

It's possible to create those kinds of errors if you delete markers in the open file, but if you have View Text Objects turned on, they're fairly visible and easy to avoid changing. If you make the markers invisible, it makes it a lot more likely that you trash something you want to preserve...

I haven't found that to be a problem in FM9 p250 - when Writer A is in Chapter1.fm and makes a cross-ref to Writer B's Chapter2.fm, Writer A gets the dialog about Chapter2.fm being edited, but you can choose View and place your x-ref anyway. When they both get saved, it seems to preserve the
