Not quite correct. It is true that each page of a multi-page PDF must be imported separately, but the original file does not have to be broken into single-page PDF files to do this. If you tell FrameMaker to import a PDF that has multiple pages, you are presented with a dialog that displays a miniature of the selected page of the PDF and provides you with both a number box and a slider bar for you to use to select the particular page you want to import. And I have to believe that one can programmatically step through the pages in an arbitray multi-page PDF via FrameScript or the FDK (although I have never looked into this in the slightest). -Fred Ridder
