Yesterday (Wednesday) morning, FM 11.0 crashed while it was opening his files. His process was to open the book file, then open each chapter file one-at-a-time. There are six chapters in the book. FM 11 crashed while opening the fifth chapter. We then tried another tact, that is to open one chapter, scroll through it, then open a second chapter and scroll through it. It then crashed while scrolling through the second chapter. We kept at it before I called the Adobe rep.
Of COURSE things work faster when all are on the same drive -- I just happen to mention it here. But the problem that did NOT occur last week DID occur first thing Wednesday a.m. here. He couldn't even work on any files because FM 11 kept crashing. And now it doesn't. THAT'S what I meant by the "go figure" comment. -- Ken ________________________________ From: "Combs, Richard" <richard.co...@polycom.com> To: Ken Poshedly <poshedly at bellsouth.net>; "framers at lists.frameusers.com" <framers at lists.frameusers.com> Cc: "techwr-l at techwr-l.com" <techwr-l at techwr-l.com> Sent: Thu, February 14, 2013 4:39:30 PM Subject: RE: "FrameMaker has detected a problem and must quit" Really?!

You really find it surprising that it takes longer to read/write files across the network than on your local hard drive? As several of us have tried to point out, it's local vs. remote that's making the difference. Your coworker would be seeing the same increased reliability and speed if he were storing his work on a second hard drive in his PC. Richard G.
