"The TimeSavers/VisLinks function can automatically draw a border around
FrameMaker links."

Is there a way to modify these settings without the TimeSavers/VisLinks
function? Markers, Xref definitions?

FrameMaker does not provide any control over link properties.
Link properties can be modified in Acrobat (Link Properties, Appearance; Link Type should be set to "Visible Rectangle", and then Line Style to "Underline"; color of the non-printing underline can be set as well. Even if scripts/plug-ins are used in Acrobat to automate these settings, this will have to be repeated when the PDF is recreated.
