This is a very strange thread.

The original post didn't ask for samples of manuals that could readily
be identified as Frame samples, but just some Frame-produced samples the
requester could use as models for experimenting with Frame to try to
come up with similar results.

How did that turn into an argument about whether you can tell, by
looking at a document, what tools were used to create it?
