John, This is a known issue, actually you have two issues. One - Save As PDF has never really worked reliably.
Two - delete fntcache.dat, check in windows\system2 and i386 folders. Delete both, if you have two, and then reboot. There is a fix from Microsoft that is supposed to fix this issue. Yu should also be able to increase your virtual memory to prevent it from happening again. -----Original Message----- From: framers-boun...@lists.frameusers.com [mailto:framers-bounces at lists.frameusers.com] On Behalf Of John Roesler Sent: Thursday, January 29, 2009 4:21 PM To: framers at lists.frameusers.com Subject: Disappearing text using Save As to PDF All, Jessica Nealon made this post in 2006: "When I use Save As to PDF my books, whole chunks of text disappear in the PDF file. It appears to be totally random. For instance, one table will have several blank rows blank followed by competed rows." http://lists.frameusers.com/pipermail/framers/2006-October/004916.html I am also using Frame 7.2, and I wonder if anyone else knows about this problem and about any bugfixes. My experience is that FrameMaker apparently puts the text in table cells behind the table when saving as a PDF. When the table has shading, this makes the text disappear entirely. Printing straight to the printer works fine. I have not found anything helpful on the Internet in general, which strikes me as strange. Also, I'm sure this is unrelated to the previous problem, but it does exacerbate the situation: Printing to my Acrobat PDF "printer" fails for an unspecified reason and printing to a PostScript file produces this cryptic error, which means I have absolutely no way of making a pdf out of my document.
