Re: Character Format in Frame
dear Frame Users:================================================
using a german FrameMaker release i don't know whether i will get
the specific terms correct. Anyway, here it goes:
When underlining raised characters (raised: as done for instance
with exponential numbers) how do i avoid the underlining of being
raised as well?
The only way to do this is by inserting an equation in an anchored frame.
For example, if you want to raise X to the nth power, in the sentense
"To raise X to the nth power do the following: ^^."
Where ^^ indicates where you insert the equation anchored frame.
Note that, when you open the equation palette, you can choose
small, medium, or large characters to match as closely as possible,
the font size being used in the rest of the sentence. When the
equation anchored frame is produced, Replace the initial question mark
with "X", then insert the superscript operator, and replace the
question mark in that operator with the value you want. Finally,
type ESC mp. This shrink-wraps the anchored frame to the size of
the equation, and the Anchoring Position is set to At Insertion Point.
