Frames and Balloons

The following task explains the methodology for managing V5 frame and balloon standards for V4 to V5 migration. You will learn:
  • how the migration of frames and balloons is carried out,
  • and what you need to pre-define concerning the V5 standard parameters before starting the migration process.

Migration mechanism

You can define several sizes for a given type of frame in V4, for the moment, it is only possible to define one size per type of frame in V5. During the migration, this pre-defined size will be used.


In V4, frames are defined in the DRWSTD function, under Annotations > Description > Visual TN > Framing.

In V5, frame and balloon sizes are defined in the Standards Editor, under Standard > name_of_standard > Frames
