In FM 6, yup, a lot of disadvantages; somewhat fewer in later versions. See http://www.microtype.com/FM_bugs.html for the full story. If you install Setprint from Sundorne http://www.sundorne.com/FrameMaker/Freeware/setPrint.htm you can set up Distiller (or Adobe PDF or whatever your version of it is called) as the default printer within FM, while leaving your regular h/w printer as the default in other applications. Then you can simply print your FM docs to PDF. -- Stuart Rogers Technical Communicator Phoenix Geophysics Limited Toronto, ON, Canada +1 (416) 491-7340 x 325 srogers phoenix-geophysics com "The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness."
