Status bar controls

The FrameMaker status bar provides all the navigational controls, pagination information, and zoom controls.

Navigational controls on the status bar


A. First page B. Previous C. Go to page number D. Next E. Last page F. Go to line number G. Go to insertion point H. Zoom controls

Zoom in and out

To magnify or decrease magnification, text, and objects, click the + (Increase Zoom) or - (Decrease Zoom) buttons on the status bar. FrameMaker zooms in or out on the area of the page containing the insertion point or selection. If the document doesn’t contain an insertion point or a selection, FrameMaker zooms in on the center of the page.

To display text and objects at a particular magnification, select a percentage from the Zoom pop-up menu.

To display the entire page in the current window, select Fit Page In Window from the Zoom pop-up menu.

To fit the page or text frame to the window, select Fit Window To Page or Fit Window To Text Frame from the Zoom pop-up menu. If the view options are set to display facing pages, the window is resized to accommodate two pages side by side.

To change the available zoom settings, click Set from the Zoom pop-up menu, select the percentage you want to change and enter the new percentage. Enter any percentage from 25% to 1600%. Click Set. To return to the default percentages, click Get Defaults.

To make 100% zoom match the page size, select File > Preferences > General. For Monitor Size, specify the diagonal size of your monitor, and then click OK. If screen-to-paper fidelity is not critical, leave Monitor Size set to Default, which ensures cross-application compatibility.

note:   You can customize the default zoom settings. For information, see the online manual Custom­izing FrameMaker on the Adobe website

Turn pages and set scrolling

You can navigate through a document window using controls in the status bar.

You can also define how FrameMaker displays pages when you scroll up and down, left and right, or two pages at a time.

If the document you are paging through is part of an open book, FrameMaker sometimes displays an alert message prompting you to choose to open the next or previous document in the book. For example, if you click Previous Page on the first page of a document, clicking Yes in the alert message box opens the previous document in the book. The last page of that document appears.

1)Make the appropriate document window or book window active. If a book window is active, select the documents you want to affect.

2)Choose View > Options.

3)Choose one of the following options from the Page Scrolling pop-up menu:

To display pages from top to bottom (for example, page 2 below page 1), choose Vertical.

To display pages from left to right (for example, page 2 to the right of page 1), choose Horizontal.

To display pages two at a time, side by side, choose Facing Pages.

To display as many pages as will fit in the window from left to right, choose Variable.

4)Click Set.

Go to another page

Do one of the following:

To go to the next page, click the Next Page button.

To go to the previous page, click the Previous Page button.

To go to the first page in the document, click the First Page button.

To go to the last page in the document, click the Last Page button.

To go to a specific page, click in the Page Number area and specify the page number you want to display.

To go to a specific line number, click in the Line Number area and specify the line number you want to display.

To go to the page containing the insertion point, click the Insertion Point button.

To move quickly through the pages, scroll vertically.

tip:   In case of structured documents, click or select in the Structure View to display the corre­sponding page in the document window. This is often the quickest way to go to the page you want.
