Hi Lin! Link checking is built in to Mif2Go for HTML conversions; it produces an error report in Frame that links to every error it finds. See the User's Guide, par. 5.1.5, "Checking for broken links in HTML or XML output". It doesn't matter that the output in this case is PDF; just run an HTML project using default settings, which takes a minute or two, and check the report. Since you don't need usable HTML output for this to work, you can just use the free unlimited demo version. Just one of the many free perks (like runfm and Wash via MIF) we've built in to Mif2Go. On the new Web site, <http://mif2go.com>, you need to register first, then after activation you can download. Be sure and put something related to Frame or Mif2Go in the bio field; that's how we sort out real signups from the frequent spammer attempts. We've had to exclude gmail and hotmail addresses for the same reason... HTH! -- Jeremy H.
