I am creating a document with a lot of images in it, and I have been putting them in anchored frames set to "Below Current Line". Is there a way to adjust the spacing / gap between the paragraph above and the anchored frame? I know that I can make the anchored frame oversized compared to the image, but it would be nice to be able to have a consistent amount of spacing between the paragraph and the image.
Nope. There's no way to adjust the space above and below for an anchored frame. What you can do is put the anchor in a separate paragraph that has its own tag (A Anchor is what I call mine) and adjust the space above and below for that.
Thanks. I kind of figured that that was the case, but was hopeful there might be something else. Maybe Adobe can add a feature like this in the future.
Thanks. Heading there now.
Another approach is to put the anchored frames inside tables.
My reasons are:
I heard that tables should not be used for anchored frames for the export to HTML5. Generally this works for me. However, I noticed that several paragraphs in a table title are not supported in HTML. Therefore all paragraphs are concatenated.
However, this issue comes up when you use regular tables or tables with anchored frames. You will need a solution anyway. See here:
Hi Winfried Reng,
I have used tables to anchor images in the past, but it didn't flow right for this manual.
As to your mention of "Keep with Next" not always working; in FM2019 it is still a little finicky sometimes, but I have found that changing the Start from "Anywhere" to "Top of Column" usually fixes the issue when overlapping a column or page.
Yes. That's correct. But that's an additional manual step.
I would want to rely on that FrameMaker really Keeps with Next, when I had activated this option.
