Delete Empty Textlines


Problem description

If you click in a document using the text tool without typing text, graphic objects will, however, arise which transport font information and can lead to messages about unavailable fonts.

These empty text lines are (also with displayed control characters) not visible; only when all objects on a page are marked, for example will these be indicated.

There is no option to globally delete empty text lines in FrameMaker.

Function description

The script deletes all empty (graphic) text lines in the current document or all documents of the current book.


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


The script works with structured and unstructured documents.
