Hi all,

I just started a new job and, after being in tech-writing jobs that used
MS Word, I'm finally at a job that uses FrameMaker. So I guess it's
about time I learned it. :-)

I've been working through the user guide and have done some tutorials
and am slowly but surely figuring this out. One thing I can't seem to
find, though: How do I make an "arrow" character for steps? (Ex.: Click
New-->File, etc.) In Word, I would just type two hyphens and a "greater
than" symbol and it would automatically turn into a nice arrow. Is there
a function similar to this in FrameMaker? I can't seem to find anything
(yet, at least). I would rather use an arrow than switch to using a
slash or a >.

Thanks in advance.
