Hey, Ken: I know that you know that I empathize deeply with the utter frustration you must feel.
One suggestion, and I know a number of very helpful ones have been proffered here recently... Is your C drive getting a bit -- crowded? And/or the destination drive of your .ps file? As I think about my nightmare, nothing had changed in terms of my Frame doc, fonts, software versions, etc. However, my C drive was very full. My theory about what might have triggered the initial Internal Error is that FM could not find room to store the .ps file. Now, why it decided to overwrite itself on disk when that happened, well, that is between Adobe and its developers. But -- maybe you should try to make sure there is a huge amount of extra space on your C drive and on the destination drive of the .ps before you try to generate the .ps file. Anyway, here's hoping for more reliable PDF-ing for us all. -- Emily At 09:41 AM 1/16/2008, Ken Stitzel wrote: >THANK YOU to the longsuffering Emily for raising the topic and to >everyone who responded to her plea with helpful suggestions.
