Mae culpa! I am so sorry I did not provide those details. I must not have copied them over from my message to Adobe. Thanks so much, Art, for pointing out the omission!
I am using Adobe FrameMaker 7.2b144 Microsoft Office Visio Professional 2003 (11.8207.8202) SP3 and MS Windows XP ... SP3! Sometimes I do convert Visio drawings to other formats, but there are times when the best results come from simply pasting the Visio elements directly into Frame. So I would like to retrieve that functionality. Your comments make sense because my machine recently downloaded updates and restarted. So, it looks like I should try backing out of SP3 today. I'll probably have better luck with that than with nagging MS. :) Thanks again! -- Brian ---------- From: Art Campbell <art.campb...@gmail.com> Date: Fri, Jun 20, 2008 at 11:16 AM Subject: Re: FrameMaker Internal Error -- Visio and "...lost image data" To: Brian Weis <bweis.wordsmith at gmail.com> Cc: framers at frameusers.com If you search back through the archives and/or visit the Frame user's forum on Adobe.com, you'll see that this has been a pretty common topic since Microsoft released SP3 for XP. They included some security fixes to OLE that have effectively broken it, at least as far as managing objects in Frame go. Only reported fix is backing out of SP3. Or you can convert the Visio objects to PDF, PNG, or other graphic files and import them by reference. May want to nag Microsoft some, if you think that would have an effect. ;- ) Of course, if you're not using XP and haven't installed SP3, something else is at work, but I didn't see any system or FM version details in your post. Which would be important in solving the problem if it is something else.
