Is there a chance that we will ever see a (Last Line) Right Indent in FrameMaker?
Not having this is extremly unpractical - especially in TOC's,, Indexes and other generated lists as they need to be edited manually with every update to look nice.
InDesign got this feature since a couple of years and it would be great to this this also in FrameMaker in one of the next releases.
I had to look up what a last line right indent is. I found Barb's description:
This solution is not a last line right indent, but you get almost the same effect. In the TOC go to one of the heading paragraphs. In the paragraph designer go to the Advanced tab. There set minimum word spacing to 200 and maximum to 125 and Update Style. And of course set up your TOC so that you have right aligned tabs before the page numbers.
Then update your book. All lines before the one with the page number will break before the right edge of the text frame. Only the page number of the last line will be aligned at the right edge.
Does this help?
Thank you. Indeed this workaround helps - but anyway it would be very a useful feature.
Voted! This is a real "nice-to-have".
Hey Winfried: I tried your workaround with a client, but now the tab isn't working. What am I doing wrong? See 1.5 below:
Ok smart people... I think the answer to my last question to Winfried is two tabs on the reference page before <$pagenum>. It doesn't hurt the short lines, but makes the long wrapping lines work. This is for a super long doc, so no room for error. Anyone see a problem with this solution, until we get a last line right indent in FrameMaker?
