Adobe FrameMaker: Page Navigation
by Barb Binder
Sure you know how to get from one page to another in a FrameMaker document, but are you a Page Navigation Expert? If not, you certainly should be. As I’ve said many times, shaving seconds off your work here and there can quickly add up to minutes or even hours of production time in a FrameMaker project.
Go to Page Containing the Insertion Point is great when you scroll away from the page where you were working, and want to get back but have forgotten where you were. And jumping to a specific Line Number is nice when you are trying to guide another FrameMaker user to a specific spot in the document, to enter a correction for example. If you find those commands useful, note that you can also access them from the status bar in the lower right hand corner of your screen:
Go to Line Number is on the left, and the button on the right will take you to the page containing the insertion point.
Finally, a discussion on page navigation wouldn’t be complete without mentioning that you can follow any hyperlink in an unlocked FrameMaker document by simply holding down Control and Alt keys as you click on the link.
Now you really are a FrameMaker Page Navigation Expert. Feel free to put it on your résumé!
