Chapter 13. Typical FrameMaker Headaches > Working with As Is Checkboxes

Working with As Is Checkboxes

FrameMaker’s As Is setting is a powerful feature that can be tricky. As Is can appear in the Paragraph, Character, and Table Designers, or other dialog boxes. The most common use of the As Is feature is in character formats. As Is allows you to determine what properties will be changed and what properties will not be changed as a result of applying a character format to text. This is why you can create one character tag, Italic, for example, apply it to text of any font family and size, and retain both the font family and size of text while changing only the angle. In this case, the font family and size are set to As Is and only the Angle property is specifically defined as italic.

You might have run into the As Is feature while viewing Paragraph Designer properties after selecting more than one paragraph in a document whose properties are different from each other. For example, suppose that you select two paragraphs whose Default Font properties are different. If you look in the Paragraph Designer > Default Font, the Family pop-up menu shows As Is.
