Alison...

He's referring to the Console window, the contents of which are written to the file, consfile.txt. On FM9 this file is at ..


    %appdata%\Adobe\FrameMaker\9\consfile.txt

Note that the content of this file is wiped out each time you restart FM, so if you want to see if any messages were written there, be sure to do it before restarting FM after a crash.

Cheers,

There is no console.txt file on my system, but there are lots of FrameLog... text files from the last couple of days.

The Internal Error number sequences repeat over and over but there are 4 different versions (attached) out of 27 files. Does anyone know if a list exists that explains what the codes mean?

I took the files home last night and ran 4 tests. 3 completed successfully, but I had one distiller failure. However, I was able to successfully build that PDF using Save as PDF. So it seems like it might be my files.

The failure came after I changed the Conditional settings and ran the book, so I have to wonder if there is Condition issue somewhere. The only Frame crashes I ever get occur when I open the Condition pod (or tab, or whatever it's called). They don't happen all the time, but I believe this is a known issue with Frame 9. (we're supposed to be moving to Frame 12 soon...).

I think I may dump a few files from the book and try building that way. See if I get the same complaint.

I may also resort to reinstalling. Sigh!

Does the FrameMaker log file (console.txt) give any messages?

    Actually, now that I look more closely at the log file contents,
    it says:

    Stack:

    -dict-

    /d

    Any chance that-dict-could refer to a problem with the dictionary
    file? Although why, or if, this would cause a problem, I don't know.

    Wim:

    The log file just states the following. And as the program seems
    to crash on Chapter 1 or 2, I don't think it's an image as I
    haven't made any image changes in those chapters since I
    successfully created Review copies of the Book back in September.

    Hi Alison,

    this often relates to either a font issue or an image (or both).
    Can you check in the logfile what is just before the error
    message? Does the FM console give any messages (missing fonts...)?
