Doug,

A MIF file is an alternative form of a FrameMaker file, functioning like
an INI file for a FrameMaker document. It is an ASCII text file which
contains values describing every element of a FrameMaker FM file, such
as text, formatting values of paragraphs/characters/tables, reference
pointers and links, and more. You can open it in a Text editor such as
Notepad. It is useful for troubleshooting, or transferring an FM file
for use in other applications. Many times, I converted files to MIF in
order to change link paths on a Find/Replace basis. Sometimes,
converting a weirdly behaving FM file to MIF and then back again helps
clean the file (repeat - sometimes).

HTH,
David

Hello fellow FrameUsers

I've been a technical writer for about seven years and have followed
this
list off and on during that time. I've seen references to MIF files but
I
have no understanding as to their purpose or use. If someone would care
to
enlighten me, who knows, maybe I've been missing out on a very useful
tool
or resource.

Thanks for past help.
