|Summary||0006679: RFE: Different margin guides on L and R pages in new document settings|
|Description||Currently, when you create a new Double Sided document, the margin settings are mirrored on L and R default pages. However, you may need to have an asymmetrical layout, for example, the automatic text frame has a large LH margin and small RH margin on both L and R pages.|
|Steps To Reproduce||I was able to successfully have asymmetric top and bottom margins on facing double-sided pages, but not inside/outside (left/right) margins.|
|Additional Information||When you create a new document in FrameMaker, the initial margin settings simply govern the placing of (in Scribus terminology) a main automatic text frame and subsidiary background text frames for running heads and feet on the default L and R master pages.|
The template designer typically then edits the L and R master pages to adjust the sizes and positionings of the text frames and various other objects and the initial margin settings have no further relevance.
FM maintains a linked list of document pages and another linked list of master pages. The doc pages are just copies of masters (i.e. no layers involved), although when you update masters, FM warns you if there is an override on a doco page so you can choose to replace, retain it partially, or retain it fully.
In other words, you modify master and doc pages in the same manner. (Note: FM is fully styled: pages, xref formats, paras, chars, tables, etc.)
This issue seems to relate to issues 0004606, 0000195, 0002793 (perhaps export the master pages linked list?), 0002646 (seems to support my idea of master pages as separate objects to doc pages).
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|I think this would be a nice addition to facing pages settings.|
