But Word is not limited to 10 recent documents. Or maybe I need to qualify that by saying that Word 2007 (and presumably later) is not limited to 10; I seem to recall that Word 2003 was configurable but had an upper limit (which could have been 10...). In any event, open the Word Options properties window (using the button at the bottom of the nameless menu in Word 2007), and go to the Advanced page. About half-way down, you'll find an item that lets you set the number of recent documents to some pretty unreasonable values (I've currently got it set to 30).
And another useful Word feature is the ability to "pin" documents to the recent list so that they will not drop off the bottom of the list if you open a whole bunch of uncustomary files.

When docs are named something strange like r108.003.24.4537.fm, keeping track of them in the Open menu with 200 or 300 documents can be a real hassle. But when you have the ten you worked on in the recent list, it is much easier to guess which you need.

This means that is you have book files that correspond to the various packages you are working with and only open the content files from those book files, Frame will remember the last 5 packages you worked with.

You *will* have to convince FrameMaker that you really do want to add non-document files to that top-level books, but it should work fine. At least I know it works fine in FM8. (And I believe that FM9 added support for nested book files as an actual feature.)
