sometimes I have similar problems with file visibility in Windows Explorer of Windows 7, but not directly connected to working with FrameMaker. I have to wait a while or restart the Explorer until files show up (again) after moving them. I think, the main aspect is that your actions cause the files to be modified. Windows 7 has some new features for caching recent files - maybe this causes your trouble. You might look into this: --> http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff686200.aspx Although I never liked FrameMaker 9 very much, I do not think it is FM to be blamed. Best regards and good luck - Tino H. Haida, Berlin Eugene Ingram Jr: > The publications department where I work has experienced a persistent file deletion bug using Adobe FrameMaker 9 (version 9.0p255) for the past few months. The bug only occurs when opening FrameMaker books from the network share drive in Windows 7. This network share drive appears identical to a local drive. When copying FrameMaker projects to the local hard-drive the problem does not occur. However, it's essential to work off the network share drive so that other writers see FrameMaker locked files and do not work on those files simultaneously. > > Steps to reproduce issue follow. > > Scenario #1: > > * Open a FrameMaker book file (where the book and associated FM files are contained in a file folder) on the network share drive. > * Generate a TOC. > >> Result: Files in book randomly disappear from FrameMaker project folder. After restoring the files and running the TOC again, files randomly vanish again. I use the phrase "randomly vanish" because which files vanish is unpredictable and constantly changing every time the TOC is generated. > > Scenario #2: > > * Open a FrameMaker book file (where the book and associated FM files are contained in a file folder) on the network share drive. > * Highlight all the files in the book. > * Select View > Hide Conditional Text Indicators. > >> Result: Similar to Scenario #1. > > Scenario #3: > > * Open a FrameMaker book file (where the book and associated FM files are contained in a file folder) on the network share drive. > * Highlight all the files in the book. > * Select Format > Document > Change Bars. > * Modify any setting(s) within the Change Bars Properties dialog box. > * Click Set.
