In Adobe FrameMaker we normally apply paragraph and character formats, and insert variables using the catalogs and the pod, respectively. This typically takes half a dozen clicks for each format. It is slow, involves using both, the keyboard and the mouse, and requires us to focus on what’s happening in the UI. Hey in all these 26 formats that my corporate template uses, where is the second level bullet?! So how does one get rid of all these nuisances? Adobe FrameMaker offers keyboard shortcuts for almost all the commands you know. And then some 🙂
Watch the Captivate demo below to know how to quickly apply paragraph and character formats, and insert variables with the help of keyboard shortcuts. The demo also shows how to design templates to increase their usability, for such usage. Turn on the volume while watching it to listen to the instructions.
