A big thank the framers who responded to my equation issues of last Friday (how to get MathType equations into FM and rendered in PDF) - in particular: Mike Wickham, Steve Rickaby, Art Campbell, and Brad Anderson. I appreciated all the advice (and admonishments), which helped me to understand the issues more clearly.
Mike Wickham's suggestion below helped me to determine that the equation files created in Math Type 5 should be saved as file type Encapsulated Postscript/TIFF (*.eps). It's the "TIFF" that made the difference. This was Mike's response to me: "When you save as EPS, look for a "preview" setting. (It might be called something else in MathType.) FrameMaker only displays the low-resolution preview that embeds in an EPS file. (It prints full resolution, of course.) Without it, you get a gray box. In Illustrator, for example, you'd set the preview to either "TIFF (8-bit color)" or "TIFF (black & white)." If it's set to none, you get the gray box." When I had imported a straight *.eps file into FM, it was not showing up or was a gray box. And this is why I mistakenly stated that FM does not support EPS. My apologies for that erroneous statement. Regards, Gabrielle Burns Lead Information Products Developer BRO Software Applications Breault Research Organization, Inc. gburns at breault.com
