Show Paragraph Format Overrides


Problem description

When paragraphs are directly formatted in FrameMaker (without the use of formats), so-called paragraph format overrides will occur. These overrides may cause problems in the production process and make global adjustments and format updates more difficult.

When the insertion point is located in such a paragraph, FrameMaker will only indicate overrides with an asterisk that precedes the format name in the status line.

Determining which type of override it is is an extremely complicated process.
