RE: Frame 7.0 documentation puzzles? Correction!!!


Sorry! Peter's right. BUT I can see the online manuals on my Help menu because I installed the free FM Express plug-in from MicroType. 

BTW, it's worth paying your own money for the O'Keefe & Loring book (as I did), even if you have access to the official FM manual. Theirs is that much more complete, IMO.

You should receive at least one User Guide hard copy manual with FM 7; if
your purchase is done through a multiple-user licensing agreement, you may
receive only one copy of the documentation for the many licenses. You may
need to work with your site's software licensing person, to trace the
package through the company.

The online manuals are now PDF; you can create a desktop shortcut to the
online manuals folder, or even create shortcuts to the most-used online
manuals, but, yes, sorry, you can't open these files in FM any more.
