How to Repeat Actions in FrameMaker


Wouldn’t it be great if there was an F5 button in FrameMaker like the Redo action in MS Word? Yes, I prefer Word to Frame but we’ll get back to that later.

So, if there a way to repeat actions in frame? Kinda.

Here’s how it works.

Let’s say you change some text to bold and want to do the same on the same page. Instead of manually do it – or hitting F5 if such as thing existed – you can

  1. Press Esc.
  2. Press C
  3. Press C again.

That’s it. After a while you get used to it and can redo lots of text superfast.

Actually, there are three different Redos in frame.
  • Esc c c = repeat last font-related (i.e. character tag) command
  • Esc e e = repeat last element command
  • Esc j j = repeat last paragraph related command
Know any other framemaker tips?
