Helpful when we want them, but irritating when we know about the issues, right?

Don’t sigh anymore. FrameMaker 10 has options to turn them off!

Next time you open a book containing 10 files, with missing fonts and missing cross references. You don’t have to click 20 times!

Go to File > Preferences > Alert Strings. Show warning when:

  • clearing FrameMaker history.
  • opening a file containing unresolved cross-references.
  • opening a previous version document.
  • opening a file containing unavailable fonts.
