Hi everyone!

 

What solution have people come up with to replace FrameMaker's deprecated freeze pagination command? I have a client who needs point pages and I don't know what to suggest. Currently, she is modifying page numbers manually in Acrobat.

 

Are there any solutions out there that you have found? Scripting?

 

Or, if you used to use them and now do something else, what did you come up with?

 

Thanks in advance, 

~Barb

The problem with my solution was that you had to follow the steps closely in order to make things work. I had a few clients buy it and use it, but it became somewhat of a support nightmare so I abandoned it. I did have one client that was meticulous with her document set, which was quite large, so I kept a FrameScript version of it going for her until she recently retired...
