Set Document Window Position (up to FM8)


Problem description

When laying out or correcting documents of a book, the size, position, zoom factor, etc. of the document windows are frequently adapted.

Some people, however, find these different display settings distracting when the book is simply paged through. Moreover, the book window can often only be 'found' again via the window menu when there are many documents open.

Up to version 8, FrameMaker offers no option to unify the window sizes and position of all book components. Only since version 9 can the document windows be grouped in the same working area and the book window docked next to it in its own working area.

Function description

The script uniformly adapts the position and size of the current book window and all document windows of this book using the settings specified by the user.


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


The script works with structured and unstructured documents.

We recommend opening all book documents before running this script.
