Hi all you wonderful Framers! I have not seen a discussion on this (it may have escaped me), but having last year jumped from FM7.2 to FM10, I was looking for a way to combine a Xref format to two elements, namely one empty holding the chapter/section (not so named) numbering and the other, in a

Great, Helen. Another way of doing it might have been to create colors under the names of the condition names: eOnly, Print1, etc. That way you would not have to remember any color names or to which condition each color applied. Cheers, Bodvar Bjorgvinsson On Fri, Apr 19, 2013 at 4:28 AM,

Hi Bill, The most usual thing here, as most have suggested, is that a corrupt graphic on or next to the problematic pages is causing this. However, as the error message mentions Encoding, I would also look at the fonts on these pages. Is there any text (or an entity for holding text) on these

Hi Dick, For free, you can read it all in the MIF file (save .fm to .mif and read the MIF file in a text editor). Takes a little more time than using any outsider tools. Also, if you have FrameScript, there are scripts for free to list this out, IIRC. Regards, Bodvar Bjorgvinsson Iceland
