Import by reference as PDF _is_ the general fix. :-) It's not at all cumbersome if you set up your workflow properly. You need to import the PDFs by reference. You can save a few mouse clicks if you group related Visio drawings together in a single multi-page file. When you import from a multi-page PDF, the dialog prompts you to select a page. On the next import command (Esc f i f), FM defaults to the same file, so you just press Page Down to go to the next PDF page and Enter to import it. You can replace 20 existing embedded graphics with 20 pages imported by reference from a single PDF in well under 5 minutes Assuming you have a recent full version of Acrobat, you should have the PDFMaker toolbar in Visio. Once your conversion settings are set up, you just click the Convert to PDF button to create a new PDF. Confirm overwriting the existing PDF of the same name, if necessary, and you're done. The next time you open the FM doc, it will see that the PDF time/date stamp has changed and will update the imported figures automatically. Couldn't be easier. HTH! Richard ------ Richard G.
