I'm new to FrameMaker and wanted how best to keep a graphic element in a side-head together with text in the body (eg. creating a warning graphic/note).
The main way to do that is to leave Page Layout » Room for Side Heads in Column Layout (which is a document-wide setting), then set the Paragraph Designer » Pagination properties as desired for elements to be in SH or not.
There are other ways to mimic it, but which to use would depend on output workflow, esp. to HTML.
Showing us your specific layout is helpful, but generally speaking I'd say you have two avenues:
1.) Anchor in a side-head paragraph
2.) Anchor outside column
Either way will work. Pick the one that you think is easiest. Then you can save the frame settings as objects as an object style to streamline your workflow moving forward.
Thanks! I will give your suggestions a try and let you know how it works out.
Sounds good, Patricia. I'll be curious to hear which option you select. I'd probably go with the second one, but either one should be good for your FrameMaker layout and PDF export.
I just realized I mentioned Object Styles but didn't provide any reference. Here is an how-to blog post that I wrote up for a past Advanced FrameMaker student that should be helpful, if you decide to implement them.
