Hi Randall, Believe it or not, I don't actually know. To get the patch, I clicked Help > Updater in FM8 and it did the whole thing for me. During the update, it required that I close FM but that is all I had to do.
Hope this helps.

It solves the problem. But there is a better way. Install the 8.0.1 patch that Adobe released last week. It fixes a long list of bugs, including that one.

I verified this with Adobe Tech Support. The failure to distill a book to PDF is a known issue with FM 8, which occurs regardless of whether the book is created in Structured or Unstructured FM. It is recommended that everyone use this work-around, or distill each file in the book individually, until Adobe releases a patch. -- Valerie Lipow vallipow at gmail.com On 10/30/07, Art Campbell <art.campbell at gmail.com> wrote: > > Try turning Tagged PDF ON in your settings, and make sure that all > files are open on your desktop. > > Also, SaveAs may not be the best way to generate it.
