Find and replace anchored frame properties

Mar 21, 2013 4:09 PM

Using FrameMaker 11, is there a way to use Find/Change to find each anchored frame and apply a 1pt black Pen Pattern to each frame?

    First create the appropriate style for the Anchored Frame using the new Object Styles option in FM11. Then use the Find > Anchored Frames and manually apply the style. You can use the keyboard shortcut "esc g e" to quickly bring up the Object Style Catalog to then apply your pre-defined style to the anchored frame.


    Unfortunately, you can't do a Copy Special to pick up the Object Style so that you can use the By Pasting option in the Change/Find.

    When you import your graphic, FM auomatically sticks it in an A-frame as before. The anchored Frame is automatically selected after the import. However, if you have the Anchored Frame panel open, the first line of the new A-frame panel has the Object Style option. Simply click on this and select the pre-defined style and then click the "Edit Frame" button to apply this. Three-extra clicks.
