True... although Recosoft has recently released a product to convert PDF into an editable *InDesign* document, so I guess they must have thought there was a commercial need. <http://www.recosoft.com/company/press/news01092007.htm> Same company does lots of other PDF->somethingelse converters, but sadly not for FrameMaker... unsurprisingly. However, you might be able to use one of their converters as a stepping stone, but I don't know whether it would give any advantage over a save to RTF from Acrobat. -- Steve
