You could save the template(s) as MIF and search for the offending font. It's probably on some Reference page or tucked on a Master Page or some-such. Change the missing font name to the name of an available font (or just use the MIF to investigate where it's occurring, and use FrameMaker on its

Check the master and reference pages. The fonts pod can help with fon replacement, but I think you have to be in the specific page context. If your docs are single sided, be sure to choose double-sided so you can see the default master page as it probably contains these items in the header or

I second the idea of making sure you send the crash logs to Adobe. I use FM10 and FM11 and, while both are not crash free, I don't run into crashes that often. Craig ___ You are currently subscribed to framers as arch...@mail-archive.com. Send list

Easy as pie - use conditional text in your FM docs for the US/UK parts - use RH to import your FM content for help builds or get TCS to link your FM source to a RH project. Continue to use FM for making good-looking PDFs. Lots of resources for doing this on the Adobe Forums TCS blog pages and
