A student in my free Intro to FrameMaker 2019 course noticed that the View > Toolbars > Object Properties menu item brings up an interesting toolbar, rather than the Object Properties pod.
Here’s a snap of the toolbar that displays using Fm 126.96.36.1991:
Even more interesting, the toolbar that comes up has a button (circled in red above) which purports to bring up the elusive Object Properties pod. (shown below)
Unfortunately, this button actually brings up the Object Style Designer!
As a side-note, there’s no actual menu item in the View menu to bring up the Object Properties pod. However, here are three other easy ways to bring up this pod:
- the Graphics > Object Properties menu item
- the Window > Pods > Object Properties item
- right-click on the object for which you’d like to view properties and select Object Properties from the resulting context menu
Here’s how you can help
Visit https://tracker.adobe.com/#/view/FRMAKER-7285 to vote for the Adobe tracker item I created to get this fixed. Trust me, it only takes a few votes to get this issue some additional attention.
Fortunately, since these are fairly easy things to fix, I expect I’ll be rewriting this post soon, when the next FrameMaker 2019 update comes out.
