FMbuildTB - building Tool Bars for FrameMaker

This utility can build tool bars for FrameMaker on the base of existing tool bars. These may also be ETB tool bars.

The utility can not work for FM versions below 14, because the structure of work spaces, tool bars and icon files was not stable in those times.


Attention: Windows Defender may react to this installation with a virus warning. This is a false positive. You may check this with an upload to Virustotal
Please consult the complete documentation for instructions how to avoid intervention by Windows Defender. This most useful feature has the quirk to quarantine most compiled AHK scripts.
