As an FYI: Some hyperlinks in FrameMaker documents do not seem to output with PDF generators like Nitro PDF and a few others that I have tested so far. Most are good in general though (of course, I am not sure why Nitro choked on your document!).
Anyway, so far, my tests show only Adobe Acrobat doing the “right thing” for the links, but I am planning on working with a company who makes a PDF writer – they have expressed interest to add this support. So, if you have links in your document, stick with Adobe Acrobat for now ... Z P.S. Some LaTeX editors can create PDF with links. I particularly like TeXstudio (from http://texstudio.sourceforge.net/). All my new specs are now created as LaTeX files instead of FrameMaker, and this editor is generating excellent PDF output for them.

Missing Adobe PDF printer driver Thanks for this kind response, Tino. I did not have Acrobat/Distiller on my system, so I had to install something. I did try using Nitro PDF Pro 8, for which I have a full license, but it choked when I tried to print the whole book using its PDF printer driver. I suppose I could have tried others, but when I received Art’s suggestion, I just went with that, and it has worked out fine.

Missing Adobe PDF printer driver Hi, the main question is if you still have Acrobat and Distiller installed on your computer or not. I also have this problem: FM does not recognize the Distiller, but it nevertheless does in fact produce a ps-file, a ".tps"-file (which would normally handed over automatically to Distiller). I then just take this file and drag it on to the Distiller and have my PDF. But if Acrobat has really vanished completely, you could use the FM 8 distiller plugin which is part of the FM installation DVD (maybe via the "repair" option, I am not sure). Or: You could install any other PDF printer like Tiny PDF, PDF24 or whatever you like... Just check the Internet for something suitable. Best regards - Tino H. Haida VLM TechSubs: Aack! I’m at the end of this project, and I went to Save As PDF. Frame 8 (Win 7 x64) reports that it cannot find the Adobe PDF printer driver. I know what happened … I had someone “helping me”, and that person “accidentally cleaned it up”. Needless to say, that person is no longer helping me! :) Meanwhile … how can I get this driver back. Do I download a complete Frame 8 installation and install over the one I have? (I do have the S/N, of course.) Or is there another, more direct solution? Thanks! Elchanan
