FM9 patch 9.0.4

2010-07-08 Thread rebecca.l.fras...@aphis.usda.gov

Change bars in Framemaker

2007-06-15 Thread rebecca.l.fras...@aphis.usda.gov
My framehating coworker requested that I send this question in. We use automatic change bars every time we work on our files. Big ones, 10 pt thickness, on the left side of the column. When my coworker works on a file, it will add change bars in areas he hasn't touched, such as chapter titles.

Adobe Support Package for Framemaker

2007-03-29 Thread rebecca.l.fras...@aphis.usda.gov
Our IT dept has suggested we get an Adobe support package for problems with Framemaker. I personally always use this group instead and will continue to do so. Will a support package help the rest of them with their problems? And I don't know what kind of problems. We had a problem with dropped

Fillable pdf forms and Framemaker documents

2006-12-27 Thread rebecca.l.fras...@aphis.usda.gov
I was under the impression you could insert a fillable form into a Framemaker book after it had been converted to PDF. I keep trying and the fields go away. If anyone can help me, I would be grateful!!! Thanks.

Creating a Folded Booklet

2006-10-04 Thread rebecca.l.fras...@aphis.usda.gov
Is is possible to build a folded booklet in Framemaker? I have to create a 3-1/2" x 6" dictionary, and I'd rather use FM instead of Word. Thanks for any help!

border around a word?

2007-08-07 Thread rebecca.l.fras...@aphis.usda.gov
