Welcome! This list is pretty useful with some VERY knowledgeable
folks participating!

Now, to get to your question. This may or may not be a factor with
your situation, but I will sometimes have the problem of my Control key
not working at all. I'm not totally sure what causes this, but I'm
thinking it has something to do with the use of certain graphics file
types. The only thing I've found to fix this is to quit and restart
Frame. If none of your other Control key combinations are working, that
may be the case with you, as well. Or even if some of them are working
but others aren't, maybe. Again, I have no idea of what's causing this
or just how many things are affected, so I'm taking a shot in the dark,

Good luck!

Hello Framers! It's my first post to the list! I've been gleaning useful
knowledge from you all for awhile; thanks!

I am stymied on a "simple" problem. Keyboard shortcuts save me lots of
time, like CTRL-D for the Character Designer dialog. For some reason,
however, I cannot use the preset CTRL-M to bring up the Paragraph
Designer dialog. I wonder if my FrameMaker app has CTRL-M set to some
other function, and yet when I hit CTRL-M repeatedly (in frustration),
(seemingly) nothing happens. Where can I adjust my keyboard shortcuts?
In FrameMaker somewhere? Anywhere? Agh!

Cheers, Fellow Framers,
