I've not actually done it recently, but the FM print window has a drop-down
list called Print Book As. I believe if you select Separate Print Job for
Each Document, you will get what you want. It would probably be best to
place the resulting .ps files in a watched folder, so Distiller will
automatically distill each one.

Subject: Frame-to-PDF mini-docs

Using Frame 7.0, AcrobatPro 7.0, Mif2Go. I have books consisting of 
chapters that contain several thousand individual documents. Each doc 
begins consistently with a paratag for the doc title so it is easy to 
define where a new doc starts. I've been asked to output individual 
PDFs of each document. I'll probably need to do this once every 
couple of years. The hard way would be to take the whole-book PDF and 
manually extract each document to an individual file. Is there an easier
