I was unemployed for a while a few years ago and through the generosity of Omni Systems, I received a copy of MIF2Go. After the response below, "wash as MIF" caught my attention I Googled it. This appears to be a function of MIF2Go, I am probably stating what everyone already knows :-) Anyway, I do NOT have the "wash as MIF" option in the file menu of Frame. How do I get it? Rick

Before resorting to what Dov Isaacs calls "reinstallsheimer's disease", I'd try a quick "wash as MIF" operation on the offending file. It seems much more likely to me that something has become corrupt in the one document file that Rick is having problems with rather than FrameMaker itself having become corrupted. -Fred Ridder > From: dspreadb at yahoo.com > To: rmelanson at spirecorp.com; richard.combs at Polycom.com; framers at lists.frameusers.com > Subject: RE: Import by Reference Question/Bug ? > Date: Tue, 18 Aug 2009 11:22:38 -0500 > > Rick, > On your first email, I opened a graphic and made some edits.
