Normally, a backslash followed by another character is treated as an "escape" mechanism for the subsequent character.
So, "\Dabc" for example, gives you a double dagger before the characters "abc", etc. This is completely normal behavior from FrameMaker's perspective. If you truly want a path to contain "\Dabc", you need to enter it in the dialog window as "\\Dabc", so that the double back-slash gets converted to a single one later when that folder is accessed later. However, a better question is "do you really want a backslash in a path"? Non-Windows systems may have difficulty with this since it would not be a folder separator for those OS's. So (without knowing what you are seeking to do here), I would recommend using a single forward-slash "/" instead. If you are using this as a delimiter for a folder name, that is. In Windows systems, this should get treated as a folder delimiter ... as far as I know.

The problem occurs when I enter the path for the document in the marker window. The characters \D are replaced by a double dagger and \F are replaced by the florin symbol. I've looked at Adobe's documentation on hypertext markers and it doesn't mention this behavior. Does anyone know how I can get the marker window to leave the text exactly as typed? I'm using Frame 10 on Windows 7 Professional. Thanks. Pat Christenson Resource Coordinator Fitzgerald Marketing and Communications pchristen...@ftportfolios.com<mailto:pchristen...@ftportfolios.com>
