Tammy, I've found Win10 to be the most reliable and trouble-free version of Windows. I currently use it for all development work and that includes FrameMaker 10, 11, 12 2015 and 2017. So far no probe to report. Functionality seems perfect with everything doing what it should. When I have to

Yes, and if the .book files aren't in the same directory, when a customer downloads the PDFs, all the inter-document links break. That's another reason I started using one big PDF for the whole doc set. On Tue, Jan 9, 2018 at 7:04 AM, David Creamer wrote: > In

I usually just keep the latest version installed, but periodically need to install an older version for online training. I have not had any major problems with older versions that I can remember. Windows 10, generally, is not a big deal, once you get over the start menu changes. Even that is not

Hi Tammy, I guess you don't need too e too afraid of these issues. When you do a system upgrade, especially when it's a bigger jump, the best practice is usually to do a test on a separate instance. Generally speaking, this is just best practice in IT. Like most people, you will probably not

Ok Stefan, These aren't trivial issues obviously and don't make me feel secure in my decision at all.  I have had 3 responses saying that running Windows 10 w/ older versions of Framemaker had not been an issue. Does anyone else on this list have experience either way? Thank you. Tammy Sent

BTW, one other major thing for Windows 10: I run on a Microsoft Surface Book with dual monitors. That alone is worth getting FM2017 as it allows dialogs (and the software) to correctly size on the displays I use. That means that when I move things from my 3000/2000 resolution tablet to a 1280 or
