I have used a shortcut, on previous versions of FrameMaker, that shrinkwrapped an inserted graphic and automatically applied a thin, black border to the image, in one step. This was a huge time saver, and eliminated tons of infernal mouse clicking. During a FrameMaker absence, I lost the shortcut. I've torn the Internet apart and read more shortcut cheatsheets and bloggy links than I can ever count, to no avail. Using Esc,m,p comes close, as this shrinkwraps the frame to the image and places it in the upper-left corner of the container (in my use, a single-row table for figures). But I still cannot find the shortcut that also applies what I think was a 1-point border, so you don't have to use the graphics tools to do it. Did they eliminate this feature? :*-( Best. Shortcut. Ever.
A student just asked me about the automatic border shortcut the other day—she described it the same way you did so I'm sure it existed/exists, but it was news to me. I'll go grab my old 5.5 shortcut guide—maybe it's in there.
In the meantime, I got away with teaching her shrink-wrap (Esc m p) and using an Object Style to assign the border. She was happy, and the beauty of object styles is that you can assign a 1 pt border to a bazzion frames, and then realize it should be 1.5 pts. You can update the style and update all the frames. Just sayin'.
How about Esc 0 p ? (that's a zero not the letter O)
It's the shortcut for assign first pen pattern (black), but you'd still have to shrink-wrap.
HOORAY! Yes, the Esc,0,p works, and I don't mind applying the second shortcut to shrinkwrap, for the short term. THANK YOU! I am in the process of building our doc templates and will eventually add the feature to the Object Catalog, but for now, this helps. (P.S. I am "that student." :-) and your teaching is stellar.)
Thanks so much for your diligence and expertise.
LOL! Roxane! You are so funny. I'm just going to keep calling you Lou!
I don't see any shortcut that does both at once in my tattered shortcut guide circa 1995. I hope someone will remember and shares it with us.
I did have a thought that might be relevant though, Lou... back in the old days I used to purchase FrameMaker add-ons from MicroType (FrameMaker, Acrobat, Captivate Training Courses & Seminars: Live online, on-site or self-paced) ) which added toolbars, shortcuts and menus to FrameMaker. Sometimes I would get confused about what was actually a Fm feature, and what was added in by MicroType (i.e., Scaling from the context menu, which somehow still doesn't exist in Fm 2015). I wonder if this combo was part of the add-on?
