Group Plug-in Menus


Problem description

Many FrameMaker plugins create their own menu directly in the FrameMaker menu bar. This can make the menu bar very unclear.

[i]-frame Group Plugin Menus

Function description

The script moves the plugin menus into their own ‘Plug-ins’ menu.

FrameScript Group Plugin Menus

The menu command functions as a switch. The current status is indicated by a checkmark in front of the command.

[i]-frame Group Plugin Menus

You can specify which menus are to be displayed directly in the menu bar and which are to be displayed in the Plug-ins menu using the ‘Plug-ins > Configure’ menu item.

To top


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


The script works with structured and unstructured documents.

The ‘Group Plugin Menus’ command is available in the ‘View’ menu in addition to the ‘[i]-frame > Base Pack’ menu.

FrameScript must be initialized as client type ‘TakeControl’ (instead of ‘Standard’) in the maker.ini file:
fsl=TakeControl,FrameScript,C:\Programme\ElmSoft\..., all

With a regular FrameScript installation (from FS 4.1), the FS Setup program will automatically assign ‘TakeControl’ to the maker.ini entry.
