Re: [Framers] Numbering in an outline with numbers and small letters

2017-06-28 Thread Lin Sims
In addition to Rick's videos, try running a search for FrameMaker
autonumbering PDFs written by Dan Emory or Lester Smalley. Both provided
excellent overviews and examples of setting up autonumbering from simple to
pretty danged complex. They are out of date (chapter and section numbers
came out years after they were written), but they're still good
foundational documents.

Re: [Framers] Numbering in an outline with numbers and small letters

2017-06-28 Thread Rick Quatro
Hi David,

The letter-colon combination is called a series label. But in this case you 
don't want to have a different series label for each format. When more than one 
format has numbering that is related, they should have the same series label. 
See my videos for details.

Rick

Try changing where you have F: to a different letter; F for the first one, G 
for the secong, etc. Each numbering value should have it's own unique 
character. There is a name for that character but it escapes me right now.

Re: [Framers] Numbering in an outline with numbers and small letters

2017-06-28 Thread Rick Quatro
Hi Tom,

Try something like this:

FigureLegend:
F:< >< ><n+>< =0>

FigureLegend_alpha:
F:< >< >< ><a+>

Without seeing the rest of the numbering, I am not sure if you need the
first two place holders (< >) in each one.

For a good understanding of FrameMaker autonumbers, you should watch my 20
minute video:

http://frameautomation.com/framemaker-autonumber-primer/

Then, watch this follow up video, which is about 16 minutes:

http://frameautomation.com/advanced-autonumber-concepts/

In just over a half-an-hour, you will be an autonumber expert!

This one has me stumped, and I have to believe that there is a pretty simple
solution that I'm overlooking.

I have a figure legend that has both numbered and lettered entries. Level
1 items are  numerals and Level 2 items are small letters. This works fine,
as long as the level 2 items are the last items in the ordered list. 
However, if the level 2 items happen to appear in the middle somewhere, such
as 1, 2, followed by a, b, and c, and then back to level 1 at 3, the
ordering doesn't pick back at 3. Instead, I get 6, as in 1, 2, a, b, c
(under 2), and 6.

What do I need to do to have that 3rd level 1 item number continue from the
last level 1 tag?

For reference, here is what I have for tag coding.

FigureLegend covers all level 1 numbers, as well as all that follow: F:< 
>< ><n+>.\t


FigureLegend_alpha covers the first level 2 item, indented slightly under
the level 1 item: F:< >< ><a+1>.\sn\t



FIgurelegend_alpa+ covers all level 2 items that follow the item tagged

[Framers] Numbering in an outline with numbers and small letters

2017-06-28 Thread tom . beiswenger
This one has me stumped, and I have to believe that there is a pretty 
simple solution that I'm overlooking.

I have a figure legend that has both numbered and lettered entries. Level 
1 items are  numerals and Level 2 items are small letters. This works 
fine, as long as the level 2 items are the last items in the ordered list. 
However, if the level 2 items happen to appear in the middle somewhere, 
such as 1, 2, followed by a, b, and c, and then back to level 1 at 3, the 
ordering doesn't pick back at 3. Instead, I get 6, as in 1, 2, a, b, c 
(under 2), and 6.

What do I need to do to have that 3rd level 1 item number continue from 
the last level 1 tag?

For reference, here is what I have for tag coding.

FigureLegend covers all level 1 numbers, as well as all that follow: F:< 
>< >.\t


FigureLegend_alpha covers the first level 2 item, indented slightly under 
the level 1 item: F:< >< >.\sn\t



FIgurelegend_alpa+ covers all level 2 items that follow the item tagged 
with the FigureLegend_alpha tag: F:< >< >.\sn\t

Hi Terry,

Two questions about Enhance, since you have experience with it: 

1. Can one assign any paratags to any outline level? (Not bound to Heading1,
etc.)

2. Can one assign more than one paratag to a given outline level? For
example, can one assign H3 and H3 Close to the same outline level?

Thank you kindly,
Elchanan

Yes! Enhance gives you an outline view of your FrameMaker document. It's
wonderful for reorganizing large documents. In fact, I'd recommend the

Re: Outline

2009-01-28 Thread quills
I would categorize this a perceived gains, capabilities, and costs. 
One very big gain and capability that structured documents give you 
is the ability to require only certain structures to fit after other 
structures.

I can't comment on the capability of Enhance to require a  specific 
structure must exist following any other element, or that they may be 
optional, or that they are forbidden. XML will do that under 
FrameMaker, as well as allow you to collapse the structure as you 
describe.

Again, it is about perceived gains, capabilities, and costs. If the 
costs outweigh the gains and capabilities, then you go another route.

A structured document, preferable saved to XML and opened directly from

Re: Outline

2009-01-28 Thread Peter Gold
Here's a method that nobody's mentioned yet. It's not complete or
perfect, but it may be useful:

* Create a TOC that extracts all the heading paragraph formats that
you want in an outline. Be sure to check Make Hypertext Links. The TOC
can be for a single document or a book.

* Modify the *TOC paragraph formats to indent the way you want.

* Format the TOC page to a narrow column, and a height that's readable
when zoomed to full-height on your screen.

* Set the zoom to Fit Page to Text Frame.

* Arrange your screen with the narrow outline frame next to the
document page frame.

* Use Frame's Ctrl+Alt+Click on a heading in the TOC to move the
insertion point to that heading, so you can edit at that location.

* Regenerate the TOC

NOTES:

- To make the links in the TOC active with a single click, instead of
with Ctrl+Alt+Click: tap Escape, tap Shift+F, tap k. The same sequence
restores editabiity.

- To reuse the outline TOC, save it to a new name. This is handy if
you've moved stuff and then need to restore the original order.

- Save the real TOC with a new name, and save a copy of the narrow
outline TOC to a new name. When you want to generate the real TOC,
close the outline TOC and delete or rename it, then open the real TOC,
save it to the correct name, and generate.

I can answer those for you. 

1. Yes. In the Select Outline Formats dialog, you can select any pgf
format and move it to the Outline Formats list. The order of the formats
in that list (which you can reorder) determines the outline levels of
those pgf formats. You're limited to ten levels (which is more than
enough for any sanely organized manual, IMHO). 

2. Yes. In the same dialog box, you can select additional pgf formats
and assign them to an outline level by clicking Set Secondary Level. For
instance, after setting up your primary outline levels with H3 in the
third position, you'd select H3 Close, click Set Secondary Level, select
3, and click OK. 

AFAIK, there's no limit to the number of pgf formats that can be
assigned to the same secondary outline level, so if you have additional
pgf formats that are third-level headings, you can set their secondary
level to 3 as well.

The secondary level pgfs act just like the primary outline level pgfs,
except that when you promote a secondary level pgf, it becomes the
corresponding primary level pgf, so you have to promote it twice to
actually move it up a level in the hierarchy. 

HTH!

Someone (or a company) was playing with an idea that would assign different
levels of a doc to a conditional text setting or series of settings, so you
could hide or reveal the different levels, outline style. Script driven, I
think. Possibly Framescript guru Rick Quatro... (Rick, was that you?), but I
wasn't interested enough to follow up. But if you haven't already hit
Google, it may reveal who it was and whether it got beyond the idea/concept
stage.

RE: Outline

2009-01-27 Thread Etzel, Gary
FrameMaker already does have an outline view, but you need to be using
structured FrameMaker to get it. In unstructured FrameMaker, there is
absolutely no difference between a Heading1 and a Heading2, or a
Heading2 and a Note. You may have it all organized in your mind, but
FrameMaker knows nothing about that. It's all just a bunch of different
paragraph formats with different fonts and colors. To turn that into an
outline, you need to define the relationships between one paragraph and
other, in a way that FrameMaker can understand. That's basically what
structured FrameMaker is all about. Once you do that, and you've spent
some time working in FrameMaker's Structure View window, you'll never
want to go back.

Hope that helps,

Gary

Look for Enhance for FrameMaker by Sandybrook Software. You can create 
an outline, promote/demote, cut and paste, drag sections, etc. and it 
all works with the paragraph styles you have currently designed and the 
virtual nesting of those heading style formats. Unfortunately, at this

Exactly! Gary has hit it on the head. What you are referring to 
doing, Hedley, is operating in a structured environment. Outlining is 
an early method used to provide structure to data. SGML and XML are 
later methods to do that.

FrameMaker in Structured mode does it quite well.

Re: Outline

2009-01-27 Thread Hedley Finger

Scott, Gary:

 What you are referring to
 doing, Hedley, is operating in a structured environment.

You have misrepresented what I actually said.

I have used the DITA XML schema and the DITA-FMx plug-in for FrameMaker 
to develop structured documentation.  But it is certainly a far from 
trivial exercise to set up the structapp.fm file with all the formatting 
rules to get your preferred look and feel.  You would only take on this 
level of setting-up overhead if you could amortise the time/cost over a 
significant number of titles.

I do not think Donald was looking to get into structured documentation 
just yet.  He probably has a virtual structure where, in his mind and in 
his files, Heading 1 /is/ at a higher level than Heading 2.  For those 
who want some of the benefits of structure in unstructured documents 
without the hassle, I highly recommend Enhance for FrameMaker from 
Sandybrook Software.  You can configure it so that Heading 1 is indeed 
higher than Heading 2, so that when you collapse the Heading 1 block, 
any contained  Heading 2 subblocks are suppressed but revealed when 
Heading 1 is expanded again.

Enhance works pretty much like the structured view in Word and you can 
perform all the same operations in Enhance that you can in Word, 
including outlining when you are developing the structure initially.

So for Donald, Enhance is the way to go.

A structured document, preferable saved to XML and opened directly from 
XML (*.fm files are not used at all) has many advantages: you can use 
all the XML tools on the saved files but work in a friendly WYSIWYG 
environment.

Regards,
Hedley

2009-01-27 Thread Art Campbell
Someone (or a company) was playing with an idea that would assign different
levels of a doc to a conditional text setting or series of settings, so you
could hide or reveal the different levels, outline style. Script driven, I
think. Possibly Framescript guru Rick Quatro... (Rick, was that you?), but I
wasn't interested enough to follow up. But if you haven't already hit
Google, it may reveal who it was and whether it got beyond the idea/concept
stage.

Generating an outline from a written & formatted document?

2007-06-27 Thread Art Campbell
A fairly quick and easy way to do this is to generate a TOC from the book file.
Then open and Save As one of the existing FM outline templates. Edit
the new file, changing the names of the paragraph tags to correspond
to the tag names used in the TOC.
Import the formats to the TOC, and edit out any tags that you don't
want to use.

If you want to, you can also just copy-and-paste the TOC info into an
empty outline template and do a series of Global Updates from the
Paragraph Designer to convert the XYZ_TOC tag to a Heading1

Automate Outline Object

2006-05-18 Thread Donald M Rinderknecht
In this project I am opening an XML file using an application with XSLT 
and r/w rules.

Is it possible to specify a border around a graphic object in the EDD, 
or would this be a read/write rule?
Or is it just not possible?

I've been snooping around the Structured Dev Guide but haven't found 
anything yet.

Thanks,
Don.

Don,
   Neither a EDD nor r/w rules can set this property. A simple FDK client 
could do so as part of the process of opening the XML document, or 
FrameScript could after the document is opened.

Automate Outline Object

2006-05-16 Thread Donald M Rinderknecht

All,

Is there a way to automate putting an outline on a graphic object. 
(Other than using FrameScript which I don't have.)
I can do this manually by selecting the object then the Tools Palette 
but I've got about 1200 graphic objects to modify.


If not, I'll look at modifying the actual graphic to put a border on them.

Thanks,
Don.

Hi Don,

FrameScript would certainly pay for itself with this job alone. If you 
decide to try it, here is the code to add a 1 point border to all of the 
imported graphics on body pages in the document.


If ActiveDoc = 0
 MsgBox 'There is no active document.';
 LeaveSub;
Else
 Run ProcessDoc oDoc(ActiveDoc);
EndIf

Sub ProcessDoc
//
Set oGraphic = oDoc.FirstGraphicInDoc;
Loop While(oGraphic)
 // See if the graphic is an imported graphic.
 If oGraphic.ObjectName = 'Inset'
   // See if the graphic is on a body page.
   If oGraphic.Page.ObjectName = 'BodyPage'
 Set oGraphic.Pen = FillBlack;
 Set oGraphic.BorderWidth = 1pt;
   EndIf
 EndIf
 Set oGraphic = oGraphic.NextGraphicInDoc;
EndLoop
//
EndSub

Without FrameScript, you could save your documents as MIF and use a text 
editor to add the border. See the online MIF Reference for the syntax 
details.
