Hi Emily

How frustrating!

I can't remember if you've tried this, but if not: can you PDF a completely new 
blank file? If not, I'd say either your Adobe PDF printer is stuffed, or FM is. 
Seeing as you can PDF okay from Word, my money's on FM. :-(

You should be okay with uninstalling FM then reinstalling it without touching 

By the way, do you have multiple versions of Acrobat installed? Even if it's 
just the reader and a full version? If so, it might pay to uninstall them all 
and re-install just the full version. Most people's systems seem to work okay 
with multiple versions, but not everyone's.  

Cheers, Rebecca

I deleted this file from the Windows/system32 directory, downed the laptop, and 
then rebooted.

When I ran FM, and tried to print to Adobe PDF, I got the same Internal Error 
message, which occurred at 0% complete.  

So, I started deleting chapters from the beginning of the book and then saved 
the book file.  And each time, I tried to print to pdf.  Each time I got the 
same Internal Error message.

Then I tried to create a new document using a FM template (the Book chapter.fm 
template).  When I tried to print to pdf, I got the same Internal Error message.

Guess the next step is to try the export to .mif, but given the number of 
chapters in the book, that is going to take a long time.  I'll try to export a 
single file to .mif first and see if that works.

Are Frameusers all sick of hearing about my lack of progress?  Perhaps I should 
just respond to suggesters?  Don't all answer at once, but if I don't receive a 
compelling case for keeping y'all updated on the gritty details, I'll start to 
just respond to the few who made suggestions.
