Hmmmm, I started on Frame 3 and read the manuals cover to cover before I
even looked at the program. I thought the manuals that came with the
package then were excellent; I haven't found the need to consult the
Frame 4 manuals much so I won't defend them, but I can only wonder what
could have happened in their pubs department that the new manuals could
deserve such disparaging comments.

Anyway, if you want a 3rd party book to get you up to speed on Frame, you
might look for a book called "Structured Publishing from the Desktop: Frame
Technology's FrameMaker" by Michael Fraase, copyright 1992, published by
Business One Irwin, Homewood, IL 60430. ISBN 1-55623-616-6. It seems like
a good starting point. The focus is primarily on Frame for Mac, but the
approach should work on any version of Frame.
