This document provides information on the following enhancements and issues resolved in the latest FrameMaker update 12.0.3:
Most issues listed below are relevant to both FrameMaker and FrameMaker XMLAuthor. Issues relevant to only FrameMaker are labeled Fm Only.
In the Structure View, a collapsed node should automatically expand when a user drags an element and hovers over the node and holds the cursor for a short time. In this case, only one level of node expansion takes place. User has the option to hover over one of the expanded child nodes, if required.
A visual indication is provided to the user when performing an element drop in the Structure View:
- Drop cannot be made: No arrow will be shown since the user is not allowed to drop the element at the current location.
- Drop is Invalid: Both the arrow and box is to be shown with dotted red lines.
- Drop Valid: No change to current behavior.
A user can expand or collapse all child elements or attributes of an element, including nested elements, in the Structure View.
Press Shift+Click to expand or collapse all sibling elements.
Press Alt+Click to expand or collapse all child elements.
Press Shift+Click to expand or collapse all sibling attributes.
Press Alt+Click to expand or collapse all child attributes.
A user can expand the element hierarchy in the Structure View to the current selected element in the document by using the Ctrl+Shift+L shortcut.
Also, a user can now navigate the element hierarchy in the Structure View while working in the document. Each time the user selects an element in the document, the Structure View is expanded to the corresponding element in the hierarchy. To enable this functionality go the Preferences dialog (Edit > Preferences > Interface tab > Structure View group) and check the option Auto-expand Corresponding to Cursor Location in Document Window.
A user is able to easily navigate in the table cells using arrow keys
Right key: Traverse the cell right-to-left. On reaching the last cell in a row, the cursor moves to the next row.
Left key: Traverse a cell left-to-right. On reaching the first cell in the row, the cursor moves to the previous row.
Down key: Traverse the cell top-to-bottom. On reaching the last line in a cell, the cursor moves to the next column.
Up key: Traverse the cell bottom-to-top-t. On reaching the first line in a cell, the cursor moves to the previous column.

The following FDK API extracts a single graphic or all the graphics in a document that are imported by copy to a specified folder. The graphics in the document are then set to import by reference.
F_ApiExternalize(F_ObjHandleT docId, F_ObjHandleT objId, String destFolder)
Set objId = 0 to extract all graphics in a document that are imported by copy.
