2006-05-08 Thread Spreadbury, David
I have been watching this thread with not a little interest. This sounds like the West Street Consulting plug-in "InsetPlus" would be the tool of choice. Wouldn't hurt to take a look at it. http://www.weststreetconsulting.com/WSC_PurchaseDownloads.htm And the price is right, free.

Importing Graphics from Word

2006-05-10 Thread Spreadbury, David
You should be able to select the graphic in Word and copy it to the clipboard. Then paste it into a graphics tool, i.e., Photoshop. Then you can save it as whatever format you prefer and import this, by reference, into Frame. -Original Message- From:

Dual Monitors for Structured Frame

2006-05-12 Thread Spreadbury, David
This is solely a Windows issue. We are running dual 19" flat screens and would fight anyone trying to take one of them. If you can get flat screens you will be much happier. We used to have 19" behemoths. They took up about 3 sq ft of desk space. The flat screens give you all of that back. The

PDF (Color to B/W?)

2006-05-31 Thread Spreadbury, David
If you are using the Adobe PDF print driver, under the Properties tab should be a selection for B/W or Color. If you aren't using the Adobe PDF driver, check the Properties options of the driver you are using. There should be a similar option. -Original Message- From:

Steve, I wouldn't have taken the MIF route to change the fonts. I would have gone through the Paragraph Designer and changed the Paragraph Tags so that they all called Arial instead of Helvetica. Then I would import the Paragraph Tags from the edited chapter to all of the other chapters. This

Frame-to-PDF-to-Frame

Wouldn't it be wonderful if it could be done with a "... click here, there, and everywhere..." I won't say it can't be done, because it can, but not with a couple of clicks. Acrobat can SaveAs RTF, Frame can import Word; saving your PDF as RTF, opening this in Word and saving it, gives you a way

Can User Variable value be changed at book level?

Radha, It is early and I am not fully awake, yet, but I see a couple of ways to resolve this issue. 1. Create a set of variables, one for the part of the number that doesn't change, then separate ones for those portions that are unique per guide. Such as; as the base number. Etc. In the

Getting the Euro Symbol in Frame

2006-09-08 Thread Spreadbury, David
You must have a font that supports the Alt+0128 when you enter the Alt code. I just tried it with Helvetica Neue and it works just fine. In your tab file, find the first instance and make the change manually. Then copy what you manually did to the clipboard and globally search for the wrong
