I did not even know of the "personal" maker.ini, but it is there sure
enough. HOWEVER, I would not recommend putting these things in there,
the reason being:
1. ~\Documents and Settings\ ~~~ da da da \maker.ini showed with
today's stamp, implying that it is regenerated each time you boot.
2. The "personal" maker.ini file only shows portions of the main file
and seems to handle locations of folders and such.
3. Everyone has recommended doing the changes on the main maker.ini.

QUESTION: Did you remember to restart (close and start again)
FrameMaker after doing the changes? The maker.ini changes will not
affect the already running FM, as this is only a file it reads at
startup.

HTH,
