[Framers] Page X of Y, redux, except not quite

2018-05-10 Thread Lin Sims
So here I am at the new job, and we're setting up FM templates. My coworker, who has established the house styles/layouts, had set up the old Word template with X of Y numbering, EXCEPT - Page numbering for the body of the document, which is to say after all the front matter, (X) starts at

In FrameMaker, is there any way to create a block of code you can select by double- or triple-clicking? That seems far more useful to me than the appearance. If the box doesn't indicate that I'd just skip it. I certainly wouldn't wrap the code in a table since that can make extra work when

Another modern monospaced font that has become fairly popular as an alternative to variations on clunky old Courier is Consolas, which has been distributed with Windows OS since the days of Windows Vista. It has good differentiation of the various easily mistaken character pairs (1 and

My setup doesn't have any one-cell or one-page restrictions, and enables easy copy/paste of the code from the generated PDF. (I read the other replies, and actually am unclear as to whether a solution has already been provided. Sorry if this is redundant info.) I've used a combo of

The delights of formatting ... You can make a gray box by making a table format, with specific ruling and shading properties. Then insert a table with 1 cell, 1 row. The only down-side to this is that FrameMaker will only allow a cell to be 1 page long. You may also want to specify the table

Hello CarolineAs far as I know, there is no way to create such a paragraph format directly in Frame. The alternative in Frame is to put the text in a one-cell table. You can define the background colour for a table cell, and borders as desired, and save it as a reusable table format.You can
