Given the amount of noise on this list about how the interface to FM is inadequate, I would think there would be a raft of end-users out there willing to sign on for this. Craig BTW: I am quite happy to be working in FM12. It's not perfect, but better than any of the previous versions I've used

A PDF file of a Visio diagram is more or less just a bunch of PostScript instructions telling the computer to draw some lines and shapes. That's a good efficient easily-portable non-lossy way to represent a vector diagram. Nothing odd about it! David On Monday, October 27, 2014 3:29 PM,

Hi Alison, If you’re really sure that the FM files have not been changed, nor have the (PDF) images referenced, then it must be something in your system. Did you (or someone else) change a local printer or a network printer? Or did you remove, or update VISIO installation or MSoffice? Or

I think FrameMaker's docs are the least bad of all the authoring tools I've used or evaluated. Their biggest weakness is often complete lack of coverage of higher-level tasks. E.g. there are no templates in the usual sense, so how do you work around that? The sample files they've provided not
