He might be referring to the ability to create AppleScript macros on the Mac.
Not everyone knows AppleScript and not everyone has a Mac.
Regarding slow saves, my machine is a 66 mHz PowerPC that takes a long time
to save 80- to 90-page docs with lots of graphics even when all I do is
change a word or two. I want an incremental save capability, although given
FM's reliability factor, I am sure it would have disastrous consequences.

I am using Frame 5.0. I have looked for such a feature
and documentation of such a feature. Where should I be
looking to find this miracle? :)

Not everyone is as lucky as you are...
My opinions are mine, and not my employer's.
