Lost Document/Book Pod

Lost the column with the book and associated files listed (33.png was what it looked like before; 22.png is what I get today). So, when I open a book, I don't see the list of sub-files/chapters. How do I get this back?

I reached out to Adobe Support. I had a corrupt file. They fixed it with a shared screen and I'm all good to go now. Thanks for your input!

Maybe I'm missing something, but these don't appear to be screenshots of the same thing. 33.png is a screenshot of an opened book file, while 22.png is a screenshot of the Welcome screen without an opened book file.

 

What happens when you open the book file again?

Ah, I think I am missing something. You have already opened the book, right? 

 

At a guess, the pod showing your book got undocked from the main window. Try shrinking (but not minimizing) the main window for Frame and see if the one for the book is lurking in the background. If it is, you can drag the book window into the main window and move it to the left side of the main window until you see a blue bar. Once you do, the pod is docked again.

Yes. Normally, when I open a book the book pod is docked to the left. Now when I open a book, the pod doesn't appear. I already tried to see if it was lurking in the background, and it is not. I've used Framemaker for 9 years and never had this happen before.

Hi Lin,

 

Thanks for the tip to shrink the FrameMaker window to get to the undocked book window. I did not know this.

However, I find it extremely difficult to dock the book window. Maybe I did not find the correct position, but I can do this only, when there is already another book open.

When I open a book, it is always docked. I did not find an option that new books are not docked.

 

Best regards

Hi,

 

What is in your Window menu in Composite Documents?

There are the open books listed.

What happens, when you click on your book?

 

Best regards

In the "Open Files" pod, I see my current book is open. When I perform Window/Composite Documents - Composite Documents is grayed out.

Hi,

 

And what happens, when you click on your book file in the Open Files pod?

In your screenshot 33.png your book does not have the book extension. Is there any reason?

What's your exact FrameMaker version? The current version 15.0.4.751.

 

Best regards

Current version is 15.0.4.751. When I click on the book file in the Open Files pod, nothing happens. I can click the check box, but nothing happens. I just received an Internal Error 15044 and FM shut down.
