2008-06-04-03T19:25Z I'm not so sure it's a problem with Acrobat. I think it might be with FrameMaker. Or, more-precisely, with the name of the .fm file.
I remember learning (from Shlomo Perets, I think) that sometimes, FrameMaker fails - without complaint - to produce a satisfactory .ps file. I've encountered this problem a few times. After trying every other solution, I shortened the name of the .fm file to not more than _eight_letters_. Then, FrameMaker was happy and performed as otherwise expected. I seem to recall that the problem occurs extremely-infrequently and stems from the deepest, oldest, UNIX code in FrameMaker. Shlomo and Dov, can you confirm or refute? If so, please do.

I get a message that Distiller can't open the *.tps file. If I move the Frame file to my C: drive and shorten the name, then I can build a PDF. Does anyone know the path limitations of Acrobat?
