Object Style Designer

Have you commonly encountered scenarios where you have multiple images and you wanted to apply some common settings across all of them? Earlier you would have modified each one individually. Object Style Designer(OSD) in FrameMaker 11 solves it well by doing it all in one go!

Just like paragraph and character styles, FrameMaker allows you to create an Object Style with various properties using OSD.

In previous versions, users would apply the graphic properties individually on objects from the graphic toolbars. OSD stores these styles that can be applied in single step from the “O” catalog over the objects.

OSD is completely different from the other designers in look-n-feel (don’t know why it was implemented this way!). These inconsistencies in different features across FrameMaker is a major nuisance. Adobe team should give some thinking to make it better.
