Hi, I just assigned X: to one of my network folders, created a new file there and imported a graphics file. No problem. Everything as it should be (FrameMaker 11 on Windows 7).
When your graphics file is on the same network drive, the path should be relative. That means, X: is not mentioned in the path name. Did you check the MIF file whether your path contains any X? Did you create a local file and import a graphics file from X:? Vice versa? What happens? What happens, if you assign another drive letter to one of your folders on X: and create a FrameMaker file there? Import a graphics file from this folder? All sorts of things may happen. However, I would also tend to believe that this is not related to the drive letter X:.

I believe this has something to do with protecting against viruses. FM does not like this. For example, when an image is imported into a FM document using the X: path, the image blinks in the FM document, as if FM continually updates the definition of X: and the image path becomes momentarily unknown and then becomes known (and so the blinking where the image is displayed and then appears in gray and so on). Now I realize that some cross-references to other FM documents contain X: in the target document path. FM does not like that either. May crash because of this. Our IT guy says that the X: cannot be removed (same profile for all). My team of tech writers usually uses a shortcut (defined correctly from \\Server<file:///\\Server>) to open books/documents but someone always forgets. I now have scripts that check the path for x-refs and images imported by reference. Does anyone know if this problem exists in later versions of FM (10 or 11)? That would solve this problem once and for all.
