Can't see some pods in FrameMaker 11

Feb 4, 2013 8:44 AM

I'm suddenly unable to see some of the pods in FrameMaker 11. For example, the Variables pod. I tried View > Pods > Variables, Window > Panels > Variables, and Special > Variables, but nothing shows up. What am I missing?

    No, I mean one of those Workspaces – top right corner – authoring, review, design, etc. – maybe the one you use has gotten corrupted?

    Hi, I had the same problem with Framemaker 11. The Variables pod just disappeared and I cannot get it back.

    I tried thee instructions too, but with no help.

     

    I turned off my laptop and started Framemaker after that, but still no variables

    It would be helpful to others who may encounter this situation if you let us know what you had to do to get the variables pod to display again...

    My variables pod was there, but empty. I was going to import variables from our template, when I collapsed the book file and the variables displayed. With the book file expanded, no variables show within the pod, even when double-clicking on a variable. It's very disconcerting.

     

    I guess I'll keep the book file collapsed until generating or manipulating files within it. It's odd though. Is it a bug or a feature?
