I had the same problem this morning: Frame crashed whenever I tried to create a PDF, using various methods (save as PDF, print to PS, print to Adobe PDF printer driver instance, single Frame file or book, Frame 7.2 and Frame 7.0).
I didn't have the "character dropout" problem, but I did follow Dov's recommendation and deleted the FNTCACHE.DAT file and rebooted. Everything works like a charm now. By the way, this FNTCACHE.DAT file was 2.3 GB, is that normal? -- Yves Barbion Documentation Architect Adobe-Certified FrameMaker Instructor ____________________________________ Scripto bvba Asselsstraat 65 9031 Gent Belgium T: +32 494 12 01 89 F: +32 9 366 50 32 BTW (VAT) BE 0886.192.394 skype: yves.barbion ____________________________________
