Align Side Heads

AlignSideHeads.fsi

Problem description

In documents with side head columns and mirrored page layouts, the alignment of the side head paragraphs is usually also mirrored.

FrameScript Align Side Heads

The unstructured FrameMaker does not offer an option to adjust the alignment of the side head paragraphs depending on the page alignment (left/right).

Function description

The script will correct the alignment of the side head paragraphs depending on the page alignment (left/right).

You can change either only the alignment of the side head paragraphs (as
paragraph format override) or assign the corresponding left-right paragraph
formats.

  • ‘Align only specified formats’ option is enabled:
    The alignment cannot be specified; only the specified paragraph formats will be assigned. If none of the specified formats exists in the paragraph catalog of the document, no changes will be made.
  • ‘Align only specified formats’ option is disabled:
    The specified paragraph formats will be assigned. If none of the specified formats exists in the paragraph catalog, the specified alignment will be assigned (as paragraph format override).

    Note: The specified alignment will also be assigned when a deviating alignment is specified in an existing paragraph format.

Requirements

  • FrameMaker 6.0 to 8.0
  • FrameScript/ElmScript 4.1 or higher

Notes

The script works with structured and unstructured documents.

However, the script only changes the paragraph alignment or the paragraph format; elements or attributes will not be changed.

Note: The ‘Execute automatically when saving documents’ option is disabled in the current version.
