Looks like you have a lot of options already. My suggestions, in order
of ease of typesetting:
0. Be sure to setup 3 paragraph formats: "C1 - Code First", "CB - Code
Body", and "CL - Code Last". [That's my general approach to format
naming: keep the accelerator keys efficient: no
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
If your deliverable is a PDF and you embed the font in the file, there should
be absolutely no problem on any platform. If your deliverable is something
other than a PDF, it could be a whole different matter.
I liked that font when I first discovered it, but can it be seen well on

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.)

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

It looks good.
Thanks for your help

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
I am going to import a set of Word files to Frame.
I am working on setting up a template in Frame which contains styles that
look like the styles in Word (where this is feasible)
The Word template put program code in a little grey box.
