When you say integrated PDF review, do you mean that when someone makes
a comment on a PDF when in review, you can import those changes and
comments into the Frame file, instead of having to copy and paste them
and then edit your text?

 Acrobat 9 is in all 3.
 Captivate is in TC and eLearning.
 Flash in eLearning and CS4.
 PhotoShop is in eLearning and CS4.
 Dreamweaver is in eLearning and CS4.
 The unique s/w in TC is FM and RoboHelp which I need for clients.
 In eLearning: Presenter and Soundbooth.
 In CS4: InDesign, Illustrator, and Fireworks.

Actually, Photoshop and Presenter are also in TC.

I'm bummed out if it's true that the standalone version of FM9 doesn't
share the integrated PDF review capability of TCS. I would really like
that feature, but FM is the only product I need from that suite, since I
have
CS4
Design Premium. There's no way I'm going to pay $1299 to upgrade and
then be forced into the more expensive upgrade path for future versions,
too.

FM 9 p230 - 3 Level Indexing Error

2009-03-25 Thread Jeff Coatsworth
Hi All,
 
I had previously discovered this bug on the initial TCS 2.0 version of
FM 9 (and reported it to Adobe), and thought I should test it again on
the latest patch version that just came out.
 
Bad news is - it's still broken. Here's the details on the error:
 
I created an Index marker with Marker Text in the format main
heading:sub heading:sub sub heading (e.g. Australia:Animals:Koalas) in
one of my FM docs. This doc belongs to a book, that in turn belongs to 1
master book of books. When you run Update Book on this master book to
create a MasterIX, it will create an error.
 
After I submitted my FM project files to Adobe Support, they were able
to reproduce the crash. It's got something to do with the nested nature
of the book of books because a normal 3 level deep index entry is
created fine when just doing it in a book with one document in it.
 
Just thought I should let others know what the progress of this issue
is.

Hi Hedley,

Since I don't have any experience with prior versions of FM, I can't
comment on the (a) bigger question, but in using FM9, they're (b) not
resizable - I find on one of my monitors running at 1280x1024, the fonts
are really small in the Marker Text entry screens.

I'm on FM 9 p230 in the TCS 2. I just get the Welcome screen once when I

I've just recently loaded TCS 2 and gotten a good look at FM9.  I really
like the new interface, even though it is different.  I especially like
the ability to customize it and save workspace versions.  However, I've
found the Welcome Screen to be *really* annoying.  Usually, welcome
screens disappear once an app is running, but this thing remains.  I
realize it offers some shortcuts (and a lot of Adobe marketing links),
but I can get those from my menus, just like any other Adobe
application.  I wonder why Adobe did this with Framemaker, when none of
their other applications behave this way.  Does anyone else dislike the
welcome screen?

RE: Graphics Fundamentals

2009-04-03 Thread Jeff Coatsworth
Hi Diane,

If the Word docs are in the new docx format, then you can extract the
graphics right out of them. The docx format is basically a zipped xml
file. If you rename the file with the extension .zip, you can use
Windows to extract the component files for you. I read about this one in
some tech writing blog, but I can't remember which one to give you the
link to this tip (sorry).

Hi Jeremy,

We are converting some word docs to FM.  The graphics files are embedded
in word and we have no idea what the original tool was to create the
graphics.
When we import the word doc into FM, the MS2007 filter in FM does a good
job.  It creates frames and places the same embedded graphics in the
frames.
Does FM know at this point what the original graphics file format is and
will Mif2Go extract the graphics to the original file format?  Or am I
wishing for too much.

Thanks lots,
Diane

You can always get embedded graphics out of Frame and into files of
their *original* type with Mif2Go; the free demo version will do that
for you:
  http://www.omsys.com/dcl/download.htm

Detailed instructions are in the User's Guide, par. 29.2.3, Exporting
and converting embedded graphics.  The graphics will not have their
original names, because Frame discarded those on import.  (Word does
better; it keeps them. ;-) But they *will* be in the original format,
most likely EPS in your case, and the process is very fast and
automatic; you can do a full book at once.

fall under 2.0, I'm compiling a list of popular tech writing blogs that I'll be 
listing in my chapter's (NYMetro) next newsletter.

So...my question is, what are the leading tech writing blogs that I should 
mention in the newsletter. The one's that I have at this point are Tom 
Johnson's I'dRatherBeWriting, Anne Gentles juswriteclick (who happens to be our 
speaker), Scott Abel's Content Wranger, the Solitary Scrivener, and Lindsey's 
beyondwords.

Any others that you-guys like to hang out on?  Please...no links to blog 
lists...I can Google with the best of them. I want to know which one's YOU 
think are the good ones.

If this error continues please call Technical Support (which so far

Hello everybody,

I just tried evaluating the Adobe Technical Communication Suite 2 and
found that RoboHelp 8 in particular did not produce consistent results.
I managed to corrupt every project I created only by continuously making
changes in the style mappings from FM to RH and then regenerating.
Sometimes the TOC would not generate at all. Has anyone been using RH8
and has anyone been able to get good results? If so what are you doing
right? Yes I watched the tutorial Adobe produced on FM9 and RH8, which
helped improve my results but it doesn't change the fact that RH8 seems
unstable.

Best,

Hi,
I'd like to join this email about making a list of figures in alpha
order. 
 
I followed the directions below and all I got was a blank FMKR page.
Then I went to just make a list of figures as a stand alone file, not
part of the book file.
That worked great, I got the list.  
1. Now, how do I alphabatize them.  
2. Isn't there a simple sort feature like Word?  Seems like then I could
make the sorted list as a template and work thru the entire book. 
3.  Is their an easier way to work within the complete book file to get
a full list of figures at one time? 
4.  Also, make a list of tables. 
 
I want to use this same technique to make a list of the titles from my
TOC, and arrange them  either by WI number or alpha to create a quick
hyperlink file for users easy reference. 
 
Using FM7.0, Adobe Distiller 5.0, Vista Enterprise.

RE: List of vs Index of

2009-05-20 Thread Jeff Coatsworth
Sorry, my confusion - I was thinking there was an Index of Figures entry option 
( there's not); however I checked my copy of the help file in FM9  it says 
that you can rearrange entries on a list. Maybe that will help you sort the 
figures. Here's the text:
 

Rearrange information in list entries
 
You can specify the order in which the parts of a list entry appear. 
For example, you can specify that the page number appear first, followed by the 
paragraph text.
 
Choose View  Reference Pages, and display the reference page that 
contains the special text flow for the table of contents or list.
Rearrange the building blocks. For example, to put the page number 
first, followed by the paragraph text, rearrange the building blocks: 
$pagenum $paratext.

So, obviously, I'm missing a step after using Index Of .   I did some

Regarding the endianess, I had a problem some 13 years ago with some 
UNIX software that was supposed to work on Linux. It did not. I sent a 
query to an Icelandic guy on the Basic Linux Training list I 
subscribed to and he came up with a solution. Then he expained to me 
that there was a difference between Linux an UNIX that one used big 
endian and the other little endian in the same code of software.

In current computer systems, there are two kinds of endianess, called
LSB (Least Significant Byte) first and MSB (Most Significant Byte)
first.
For any given system, what determines this is not the operating system
(Linux, Windows, etc.), it's the processor (CPU).  All Intel CPUs are
LSB first; others, like Sun SPARC and Motorola 68K, are MSB first.  So
Linux on a Sun SPARC would be MSB first, but on an Intel box it would be
LSB first.

Technically, the difference is indeed *byte* order, not *bit* order
(which is constant).  Suppose you have a hex number 0xABCD.  The most
significant byte is 0xAB; the least significant byte is 0xCD.
Now imagine that you store this number in memory at address 0.  ;-)  You
will get:

Location  SPARC  Intel
  0xAB   0xCD
0001  0xCD   0xAB

Well-designed programs where portability matters will work with *either*
CPU.  They do this by not caring what the storage order in memory is,
and always accessing multibyte numbers through a set of functions that
work regardless of byte order.
For example, Mif2Go was originally developed on a Sun SPARC system, then
ported to Windows very easily because it followed those design rules.

There's actually a third flavor, but it was used only on the DEC PDP-11.
Since the last of those is probably in the Smithsonian, you won't see it
in current software.  It is the same as Intel for two-byte numbers
(shorts) but switches the byte pairs for 4-byte numbers (longs).  So the
number 0x12345678 is 0x34, 0x12, 0x78, 0x56.

Endianness also affects Unicode, in the UTF-16 and UTF-32 encodings of
it, but *not* in UTF-8.
It is the reason for the UTF-16 BOM (Byte Order Mark), U+FEFF,  In
UTF-16 Big-endian (MSB first), the bytes are 0xFE 0xFF.  In UTF-16
Little-endian (LSB first), they are 0xFF 0xFE.  UTF-32 adds two zero
bytes, before it for Big and after for Little. 

The Unicode BOM may also be used as an encoding
signature, but I digress...   ;-)  Good thing
it's Friday, eh?

RE: Can Word identify graphic file names?

2009-06-30 Thread Jeff Coatsworth
I think there's a trick you can use if the Word doc is one of the new
Office 2007 docx formats. The docx document is a collection of files all
in xml. I think if you treat it as a zipped file you can get it to
extract itself into all of its components in sub-folders (graphics
included). Have a google around to find the trick - I ran across it on
some Tech Writing blog somewhere this spring.

Subject: Can Word identify graphic file names?

I've been given a CD with over 1500 graphic files of all formats on it.
These graphics are used in a MSWord-formatted manual that I need to
convert to FrameMaker. Unlike FrameMaker, which can easily generate a
list of external files used and will also display the filename of each
referenced graphic, to my knowledge there is no way to determine the
filename of any graphic used in a Word doc.

I can easily generate a thumbnail catalog of the graphic files on the CD
using Photoshop so that I can visually locate each photo in the manual.
But geez I so seriously do not want to have to do that. Does anyone know
a workaround in Word that will help me identify all of these graphic
files? A macro? I am not a Word guru so all help is appreciated.

SetPrint plug-in FM 9 within the TCS 2.0

2009-08-18 Thread Jeff Coatsworth
Hello Fellow Framers,
 
I thought Ian's instructions over at
http://www.sundorne.com/FrameMaker/Freeware/setPrint.htm were pretty
straightforward, but when I tried to follow them, my copy of FM9 (with
the TCS 2.0) isn't setting the default to Adobe PDF as it should.
 
I downloaded the SetPrint.dll into C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe
Technical Communication Suite 2\Adobe FrameMaker 9\plugins, and created
a SetPrint.ini with the Printer=Adobe PDF line, but nothing seems to
have happened when I restart FM - my default printer inside FM is still
my network HP printer.
 
Anybody have any experience with SetPrint in FM 9? Does having the TCS
make any difference?

 I use the import by reference function as a kind of alerting system.
My
 Engineering group has a bunch of directories filled with schematic and

 mechanical drawings they convert to jpg or png or pdf. I then import
by
 reference from these directories into my Frame file to create a
drawing
 book. If Engineering is changing a drawing, it is taken out of its 
 original directory and placed into a pending directory waiting for the

 DCO and the new drawing to become available. When Engineering moves
the
 file, this breaks the import by reference link thus alerting me that
my
 drawing book needs to be updated.
 
 Its at this point I run into my problem of not being able to get by
the
 Missing File window. I have also run into the scenario you state below

 where multiple files have been moved for updating. I get an  updated 
 drawing placed back into its original directory, Frame recognizes the 
 new drawing and moves on to the next missing file and sticks, its as
if
 the Ignore and Skip functions just don't work.

OK, I see now. 

If multiple missing files are all in the same new location, say
../pending_graphics, then in the FM Missing Files dialog, you only need
to identify the new path once for the first missing file. FM will look
in that same location for the other missing ones, rather than bothering
you again. 

Of course, with your workflow, you'll have to point FM back to the
original location once the changed files are DCOed. A PITA, for sure... 

Personally, I think the workflow leaves a lot to be desired. If a
graphics directory is the repository for files imported into FM by
reference, then those files should never be removed, only replaced by
newer versions with the same name. 

A different alerting system can surely be devised. For instance, if
there is a file xyz_123.png in the ../graphics directory, the appearance
of a file with the same name in the ../pending_graphics directory should
be enough of an alert without the former being removed. If the engineers
can't/won't leave the former where it is pending DCO of the latter, then
perhaps you should use a different directory as the source for the
graphics. Copy all the files in ../graphics to your /docsource_graphics
directory. A script could do that. A script could also look at
../pending_graphics periodically to alert you to upcoming changes.

Hi Michael,

I do it all the time with the Tech Comm. Suite 2.0 - however if you
don't have that product I think you can import FM docs and books into
RH8. There are some tricks to it  I would second Art's suggestion of
checking out the Frame Integration topics on the Adobe Forum - I get the
notifications sent each day from that one, the general FM one  the RH
ones.

I did try linking FM to RH at first, but I was finding that because of
my doc structure (I have a master book of books) that RH wasn't liking
it too much. Importing works much better, but still has it's quirks on
the book of books concept.

Could you tell me how to get it from Adobe? I am in India. I visited

These are readily available from Adobe. I got one and gave it to my  
client in case I get hit by a truck. Since they don't have Frame 9  
anywhere in the office (it comes in with me and my laptop), they'd be  
in a jam if they needed to get something done quickly and I was  
incapacitated. With the trial CD, they can run it and get something  
done while going through the process to order a copy.

I thought it was a nice gesture to be able to make. The client  
appreciates it. It's well worth having one of these around!

Sorry if this is already covered. I didn't quite nail search terms to find the 
answer.  Glad to follow URL's if available.

I understand pdf insertions and deletions can be tracked back to FM9, somewhat 
as Word has a Review accept/reject capability.

Anyone FM9 users utilizing this? How well does it work?

Can the trackback drill all the way through books to documents and then their 
text insets?

RE: Unable to apply custom DPI

Subject: Unable to apply custom DPI

Hi All,

 

I'm using Frame 9 (9.0p237) in TCS2 on Windows 7 and I'm running into a strange 
problem I've never encountered in previous versions of Frame.
After I insert a graphic (a .png), I normally change the DPI (through the 
Object Properties dialog box) to Custom dpi: 120. For some reason, Frame is now 
ignoring my change and automatically selecting 150 dpi.
Nothing I do will make it apply the custom DPI setting. Has anyone else 
experienced this? Is it a Frame 9 bug and is there a workaround? 

 

I'm also finding that when Frame inserts a new graphic it stretches it 
lengthwise, making it totally distorted - Frame 8 never did this. Is there some 
import setting that I'm missing that perhaps was already set in Frame 8 and 
that I need to set in Frame 9? Strangely enough, I just took another 
screenshot, pasted it in, and it looks perfect. Any thoughts?

 

TIA

I find when I get the not a valid FM file message, I can just hit OK  it 
still scans it  pulls it in. It doesn't seem to need to be open in FM at the 
same time as trying to import it (tried that already). Do you get the OK button?

The import error message may have something to do with resources (I try to 
close down as much stuff as I can when using RH - it seems to be a real memory 
pig) or it may have something to do with the source FM file. I make sure that 
any books are updated  there are no issues over in FM before trying to pull 
anything into RH.

What happens if you save the FM file as MIF and suck that into RH? I've never 
tried it, but I wonder if it would work. Just my 2 cents worth ;)

Subject: Standalone FM 9 (all patched) and RH 8.02 - (xposted to three lists)

All,

 

I do NOT have TCS2, but I am posting to several lists in hopes of findng an 
answer. I have standalone FM 9 (all patched) and standalone RH 8.0.2 installed 
on a 64 bit Win7 system. Whenever I open RH and request to import a FM file, I 
get one of the following two messages:

 

1.) Import error  - failed to complete import. the import function grinds and 
grinds and then times out with this error  message.

2.) the x.fm is NOT a FM file. Make sure that it is open and is a FM file.
Uh, yea, it is and it is open, otherwise, I wouldn't be trying to import it.

 

I am frustrated, stymied, panicked - you  name it.  I am on the hook for OLH 
for a client and I am at a complete loss. I can't get anywhere with RH.

 

Where do I start, what do I do?

 

Thanks!

RE: Anchored Frame Problem

2010-02-08 Thread Jeff Coatsworth
Hi Lea,

It's when you use the Anchoring Position: At Insertion Point option - that 
causes a new Distance above Baseline field to appear.

You don't need to do structured FM to use the FM to RH help generation. I'd 
recommend that you check out RJ Jacquez's blog 
(http://blogs.adobe.com/rjacquez/) for some good demos of how stuff flows from 
FM to RH.

Subject: Anchored Frame Problem

Hi Framers,

 

I'm hoping you can help me with a small problem. I'm using Frame 9 on Windows 
7, but I've had this problem with previous versions of Frame as well, so it's 
not new. When using anchored frames, I am unable to fix the distance of the 
frame from the surrounding text. The online Help indicates that the Anchored 
Frame dialog box has a Distance above Baseline option, but I see no such option 
in that dialog box. Not sure why Adobe says that such an option exists when it 
clearly doesn't. Does anyone know where this option may really be hiding.

 

I did have a thought that the option may be available only when using 
structured Frame, but that doesn't seem to make sense to me. I have not yet 
made the transition to structured Frame - no time to transition the old files I 
inherited. But while I'm on the subject, we bought TechCommSuite 2 and I'm 
going to use RoboHelp to create Help files we never had for our product - 
should I transition my files to structured Frame if I'm going to link my files 
to RoboHelp?

 

TIA!

If you are using a paragraph tag specific to the anchored frame (that is, 
you're not attaching the anchor with the previous paragraph), you can decrease 
the space above and below the frame by adjusting the space above/below and the 
font size (even though there's no font) in the Paragraph Designer.

RE: FrameMaker 7.2 Compatiblity with Acrobat 9

Subject: FrameMaker 7.2 Compatiblity with Acrobat 9

Sorry for the re-question, but I simply can't find the old thread.
 
I remember someone recently asking about producing PDFs using Acrobat 9, but 
they were still using FrameMaker 7.2. I think the answer was that Acrobat 9 
doesn't support FrameMaker 7.2, but that FM 7.2 might be able to produce PDFs 
anyway, just not through Save As. Can someone please refresh my memory?
 
I'm currently using FM 7.2 on Windows XP and Acrobat 6.0 Pro. I'm thinking we 
have to upgrade Acrobat to 9 Pro because I have to do online reviews that way. 
We are using FinalDraft, but now that the company has forced us to use IE8, the 
reviewers are experiencing problems with FinalDraft. Looks like it's time to 
move on.
 
Incidentally, if anyone has any other suggestions for doing online reviews of 
FrameMaker documents that doesn't involve every reviewer having a copy of 
FrameMaker, please let me know. We're okay buying the software to produce an 
online-reviewable document, but don't want to have to pay for the software for 
the reviewers.
 
Most of them are structured documents, so I could export to XML, if that's any 
help.

RE: Shortcut Control keys - Part deux

2010-02-23 Thread Jeff Coatsworth
Usually you can configure screen capture program shortcut keys so that they 
don't interfere with another program. I don't use SnagIt, but my freebie MWSnap 
supports reconfigured shortcuts. SnagIt's pretty highly regarded, so I would 
think it would support it too.

Thanks to all for your previous comments about my problems with shortcut keys 
not working in FrameMaker. The problem was Snagit. As long as I don't have 
Snagit open, FrameMaker hums along nicely. (As nicely as FM9 CAN hum along...) 
However... I still need to capture screens. Has anyone who has had this problem 
used another capture utility that doesn't interfere with FM? I have the free 
version of ScreenHunter, but I can't edit the captures. I can upgrade and get 
the version that can. Does anyone else have ScreenHunter, or another 
recommendation?

Any insights or advice? Thanks in advance.

RE: Opening book files without opening the book

2010-02-24 Thread Jeff Coatsworth
I haven't found that to be a problem in FM9 p250 - when Writer A is in 
Chapter1.fm and makes a cross-ref to Writer B's Chapter2.fm, Writer A gets the 
dialog about Chapter2.fm being edited, but you can choose View and place your 
x-ref anyway. When they both get saved, it seems to preserve the x-ref fine.

Subject: Re: Opening book files without opening the book

It's just a matter of logistics. If Writer A opens Chapter1.fm and inserts a 
cross-reference to Chapter2.fm which is currently opened by Writer B, then that 
will fail.

To succesfully be able to insert an inter-chapter cross-reference, Writer A 
needs all chapters to be writeable. After inserting the cross-reference, Writer 
A must save all chapters. Frame puts a cross-ref marker on the heading to which 
the cross-reference is made.

An easy way around this is to coordinate the placing of cross-references at 
certain times during the project.

 working in an individual file without opening the book, that errors

I received a set of Spanish files back from my LSP today and as I was making

charges are outrageous) it became obvious that they had completely screwed up 
my graphics - which I import by reference. As the LSP is in Europe I am hoping 
there is a simple batch method to change the relative path for my all graphics 
rather than have to re-link by hand or wait for a set of corrected files.

The path is only out by one level.

The FM files sit directly above my Graphics (Linked) directory (which is 
further categorized by Chapters, Appendices, etc.). However, there is now 
another directory above Graphics (Linked) entitled FM

...\FM\Graphics (Linked)...

instead of

...\Graphics (Linked)\...

Is there a simple way I can get rid of the FM in the relative path (I don't 
have FrameScript) or am I screwed and need to wait for updated files from my 
LSP?

RE: FM9 Crash: Internal Error Message

2010-03-05 Thread Jeff Coatsworth
First off - how are you trying to create a PDF? Printing to the Adobe PDF 
printer instance (rec. method) or Save As PDF (reportedly flakey)?
Do you have the Adobe PDF printer set as the default in FM (using the SetPrint 
plug-in)?
Did it ever work before on this doc? Have you tried Art Campbell's MIF-wash 
technique (save .fm as .mif, open .mif, save back as .fm) to fight corruption.
Could you be subject to the MS Hotfix for PDF creation? See the Adobe.com 
developer blogs for info on the fix.

Frame Experts:
I enjoy reading and learning from the Frame List Serve and hope someone out 
there can help me.

I am using FM9.0p250 in a Windows XP environment. The book I (am trying to) 
create is a pdf document.

For the past three days (working in the same book), Framemaker has crashed and 
I have received the following error message:
Internal Error 9004, 7888662, 5205995, 5205700. Framemaker has detected a 
serious problem and must quit.
Then, an error log is generated as a txt file.
As requested by the kind crash message, I submitted the txt files and the Frame 
files to fmer...@adobe,com but, not surprisingly, have not heard anything 
from Adobe.
There does seem to be a pattern to the crazy crash since it happens in the same 
file every time while I am attempting to properly number a series of Figures 
and Tables( N:TABLE $volnum-n ... which has been another headache itself, 
but that's another story...)

Could it be a corrupt file? Can anyone interpret the internal error codes or 
give me some place to look for help?
Thanks!

RE: Can FrameMaker versions 9 and 7.1 co-exist on the same machine?

2010-03-23 Thread Jeff Coatsworth
 Yes you can run multiple versions of FM on the same machine, but only the 
latest copy of Distiller. Make sure that you clean out all versions of 
Distiller before installing the new one.

Subject: Can FrameMaker versions 9 and 7.1 co-exist on the same machine?

Hi everyone,

My company is thinking about purchasing FrameMaker 9. We currently use 
FrameMaker 7.1. Management would like writers to have both versions on their 
machines as the transition is made, if possible. I don't anticipate actually 
running the two versions at the same time.

Are there any problems with doing this? We run Windows XP Professional (I'm not 
sure if we are all on the same version/SP, but probably). I have version 5.1/SP 
3.

Does anybody have any experience with this?

Thank you!

Gary

Well, it may not be on the splash screen itself, but there is a checkbox item 
to turn off the splashscreen. (Or at least there is in FrameMaker 8--I don't 
have FrameMaker 9, so I don't know if it's still available.) In FrameMaker 8, 
you use FilePreferencesGeneral to open the Preferences dialog. The

We may have discovered a bug in Frame when saving to PDF. We were creating 
print-ready PDFs for our printer and for some reason it would not embed our 
Helvetica Fraction Fonts in the PDF.
I have my PDF settings set like have been using for years with Frame 7 through 
8. Never a problem.
Now we save as PDF and a couple of files will embed the fonts fine and then all 
of a sudden we get bad output. Instead of the fraction looking like 
(superscript)1/(subscript)2 it looks like Z/x or whatever fraction we are 
trying to use.
I had to shutdown Framemaker 9 and restart it and then the fonts would embed in 
the file correctly.  I visually check my files when we first output, but then 
let the process run after I approve. I had no idea what I approved would 
change. This cost me $1,000 at the printer as I had to redo all my files.

RE: Frame's File Comparison Feature

2010-05-04 Thread Jeff Coatsworth
First I would get your copy of FM9 patched - currently it's at p250.
Next I would look at moving to structured FM - translation costs are the 
biggest argument I've ever seen for making the case to move to a structured 
environment.
If you can't afford the time to do that, are there significant parts of your 
documentation that have already been translated and don't change? If so, then 
you could certainly cut down on your costs by only getting the chunks that have 
changed translated. That means breaking stuff up into pseudo-structured bits 
- lots of smaller topics or text insets, but not full structured FM.

We translate our manuals and I am constantly trying to find ways to trim 
translation costs (depending on the language and frequency of translation 
updates, it runs from $5,000 to $11,000 to translate a manual). As we are a 
Medical Device company, translation is mandated so it's something we just have 
live with.

In various List threads, I've read about using Frame's file comparison ability 
to determine changes from one release to the next. As a Frame newbie, I 
wondered if anyone could give me more information about this feature? Can it be 
used to mitigate the amount of translation sent to the Language Service 
Provider (LSP) and if it can, how do I do this?

FYI: My current procedure is to send the LSP all the relevant native Frame (and 
Visio) files. I let them handle the MIF conversion (as I don't pay a project 
management fee, I let them work for their money. Besides, I have never worked 
with MIF files - but there is a first time for everything).

Budget is always an issue, so if I need to buy any other tools to make this 
feasible, I would have to present an ROI case (even for something that only 
cost $100). But if there is a way to send a smaller amount of text and then put 
the files back together without a hassle once they were completed, I know I 
could swing the purchase of new tools.

Any help would appreciated,

They've had poor luck using job boards -- a tsunami of dubiously-qualified

Subject: FM9 Newbie looking for best self training tools

Hi!

I'm still using the trial version and need to make a recommendation to a client 
on if FrameMaker is the right tool for their system instruction manuals.  
Client has a job shop and sells many unique system configurations made from 
standard components to private and government clients.  The idea is to quickly 
assemble a unique manual for each system order shipped.  If I recommend FM, 
then client will buy FM and pay for training for several users.  The client is 
biased against Word, and frankly for any document larger than 50 pages, I 
agree.  Word gets tangled on itself over large files.

I've never used FM before and trying to learn 9.0.  I'm an advanced user of 
Word, in Windows 7 (technical writer using Word for over 15 years).  I bought 
and went through most of Classroom in a Book for FM9, but I'm stumbling over 
the vocabulary (things like Headings versus Markers don't seem to be 1:1 
meanings, for example).  Dummies books have always given me a great head start, 
but the only one out there I can find is Framemaker 5.5 for Dummies.  My 
thought is that Dummies/FM 5.5 could at least help me understand how FM 
works/thinks, achieve a rudimentary glossary, so then I can use other FM 
training tools.

What I'm tasked to do is to create multiple individual files with unique 
content, and create various manuals with different file combinations - each 
manual with a table of contents and index and automatic page numbering.  I 
think I'm supposed to learn unstructured first in order to do this?  Or do I 
need to learn structured first and make some master templates?  Any suggestions 
or perhaps anyone care to send me an example to play with?
Maybe I should forget about FrameMaker and try something else?  I'm open to 
your suggestions.

Any help or suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

RE: Framemaker desktop to Framemaker Server, Adobe Content Server, Sharepoint, and Sitecore

2010-10-15 Thread Jeff Coatsworth
I'd be a bit skeptical about this solution - it sounds like the client would 
be doing all their authoring in Frame; changing a bunch of users who author in 
Word and get them to author in structured Frame would be a big change. It 
sounds like a lot of overkill to me. They probably would be happier with you 
developing different output formats that work better with websites (like 
WebHelp or browser-based AIR help).

Subject: Framemaker desktop to Framemaker Server, Adobe Content Server, 
Sharepoint, and Sitecore

Fellow Framers,

Background: I'm an independent business owner who manages the publication and 
maintenance of large suites of documentation for clients using unstructured 
Framemaker and Acrobat via Adobe TechComm Suite loaded on a Windows7 desktop. 
{whew!} All files are stored on my own local computers, and I have 
well-developed workflow, backup, and version control systems in place. One 
particular long-time client produces standards and specifications that regulate 
a branch of the transportation industry. The documents are developed at a 
committee level and given to me in whatever format they are most comfortable 
using for knowledge transfer; usually Word or PDF markup.  I have never seen a 
need for this client to consider an XML output, and my client would probably 
resist the recommendation if I made it. My product is PDF files.

Problem: This client needs to develop a more robust ecommerce solution for 
their documents. Currently the docs are distributed via hardcopy or as PDFs via 
CD and subscription download. This client's parent company has enlisted the 
services of a Web development company who is recommending that my client employ 
some combination of Framemaker Server, Adobe Content Server, Sharepoint, and 
Sitecore. I haven't quite figured out yet what that combination might be 
because today was the first I've heard about it. The good news is that my 
client is requiring my presence and input even in the early discussions about 
this project. I want my input to be valuable and to represent my client's best 
interests, and I want to be able to help steer them through all of this.

Questions: I have done some preliminary digging into Framemaker Server and 
Adobe Content Server. I have a fair grasp of Sharepoint's capabilities, and 
zero knowledge about Sitecore. I have minimal experience with Framemaker's 
structured environment, although I've taken several workshops. I'd like to hear 
from any of you whose Framemaker documentation cycle involves any combination 
of these products. Did that involvement require a transition from a desktop 
environment to a server environment? How has it changed your workflow? As an 
independent business, what changes did you need to make to your own office 
computing set-up? How did Framemaker behave? 
What is the relationship of these products to one another and to Framemaker? 
What were the benefits? What were the consequences?

These may not be the right questions to ask, but I was a bit broad-sided by the 
Web development company's sudden discussion of these tools, and I know that 
this group of Framers can be gentle with folks who haven't learned enough yet 
to ask intelligent questions. If there are better questions to ask, I know I 
can trust you to suggest them.

RE: Inheriting formats when pasting

2010-11-26 Thread Jeff Coatsworth
FM10's not out there quite yet - I just tried it in FM9  it's behaving the 
same way you describe. I remember doing a tweak to my maker.ini settings to 
copy  paste just text from outside sources (like Word) without picking up the 
formatting of the source, but I don't think it's making any difference with FM 
to FM copy/pastes.

Subject: Inheriting formats when pasting

Hi everyone, and Happy Thanksgiving,

Here's a FM 8 (p277) question for you to ponder, it's been bugging me for some 
time.

When I cut-and-paste between paragraphs of different fonts (or any other 
format), Frame remembers the source formatting, and pastes it along with the 
text. So our strict formats get all mixed up.

I usually just use Paste Special... to paste as text, so it takes the 
formatting of the target paragraph. It's rather annoying to have to do 3 extra 
clicks to do something as simple as pasting. But even that doesn't work if I'm 
pasting a cross reference or special character like a non-breaking space--they 
get lost when pasting as plain text. For that, I have to do a regular paste, 
then reselect and fix the formatting to Default P Font.

It seems that FrameMaker knows how to do this because if I do a search and 
replace with text that has special characters, they appear correctly anywhere 
they get inserted (though if you replace by pasting, you're back to the same 
problem).

Is there a way to configure smart paste by default? Do FM9 or 10 behave 
differently?

Thanks,

  Andy

Subject: Printing Issues With FrameMaker and PDF

I NEED YOUR HELP!

 

I'm having issues when trying to print to pdf from Framemaker (V8.0p277
with FrameMaker 8.0 XP SP3 Fix. When printing from Framemaker, I have my
printer set to Adobe PDF. The following is a diary of what was happening
and what I did to rectify the problem. I know this is lengthy, but after
all is said and done, I can produce a pdf from FrameMaker, but it is
missing lines and/or paragraphs of information (I have tried printing to
pdf, Save As PDF, and also print to file - all with the same results).

 

My System

*   
Dell Precision M4400 Workstation: Intel(r) Core(tm) 2 Duo P8700
(2.53GHz, 3M L2 Cache, 1066MHz FSB)
*   
Professional to XP Professional SP3
*   
Memory: 4.0GB, DDR2-800 SDRAM, 2 DIMMS
*   
NVIDIA Quadro FX 770M, 512MB
*   
Hard Drive 250GB

 

 

HERE'S WHAT'S HAPPENING

 

Getting fatal errors in FrameMaker while printing to pdf. 

 

I did the following to try to correct the issue:

*   Removed Acrobat 8 Professional (Version 8.25) and FrameMaker
from system
*   Installed Acrobat 8 Professional and FrameMaker from the
original CDs
*   Installed FrameMaker update patches (p266; p273 and p277) and
FrameMaker 8.0 XP SP3 Fix

 

Rebooted system and everything was working fine for about a week.

 

Getting fatal errors in FrameMaker while printing to pdf again. 

 

I did the following:

*   Removed Acrobat 8 Professional (Version 8.25) and FrameMaker
from system
*   Removed and installed printers (local and Adobe PDF)
*   Installed Acrobat 8 Professional and FrameMaker from the
original CDs
*   Installed FrameMaker update patches (p266; p273 and p277) and
FrameMaker 8.0 XP SP3 Fix

This did not correct the problem. 

 

I then called my company's IT department and they recommended that I
perform a ChkDsk on my hard drive and when that completes, do a Disk
Defrag and call them back if the issue isn't resolved. 

 

When both actions were completed, I rebooted my system and tried
printing a file to pdf, and I got a fatal error again. I did the
following again:

*   Removed Acrobat 8 Professional (Version 8.25) and FrameMaker
from system
*   Removed and installed printers (local and Adobe PDF)
*   Installed Acrobat 8 Professional and FrameMaker from the
original CDs
*   Installed FrameMaker update patches (p266; p273 and p277) 

I increased my virtual memory paging file size on D: from nothing to
5356 MB for a total of 10712 MB (minimum allowed on each drive is 2 MB).

 

This did not correct the problem as I'm still getting fatal errors in
FrameMaker when printing to pdf. So, I did the following (again): 

*   Removed Acrobat 8 Professional (Version 8.25) and FrameMaker
from system
*   Removed and installed printers (local and Adobe PDF)
*   Installed Acrobat 8 Professional and FrameMaker from the
original CDs
*   Installed FrameMaker update patches (p266; p273 and p277) and
FrameMaker 8.0 XP SP3 Fix

Again, this did not correct the problem. Instead of getting fatal
errors, when printing to pdf, the printer displays an error message
stating the document did not print due to an error.

 

My company's IT department representative took my system, backed it up,
and then reimaged the entire system. Once I got it back, I reinstalled
the following:

*   
Installed Adobe Creative Suite (Design) 3
*   
Installed Acrobat 8 Professional and FrameMaker from the
original CDs
*   
Installed FrameMaker update patches (p266; p273 and p277) and
FrameMaker 8.0 XP SP3 Fix 
*   
Removed and installed printers (local and Adobe PDF)
*   
Downloaded all Adobe updates

Now I can print to pdf, but as I mentioned above, the pdf is arbitrarily
missing lines of text up to including missing paragraphs.

RE: Off-Topic: Acrobat Shared Review

2010-12-01 Thread Jeff Coatsworth
I think shared reviews got built in 9 (certainly the ability to roundtrip 
reviews in FM came in with FM9); I've used them with PDFs in network folders 
internally - I've never used it with acrobat.com (which I guess is the new 
way to do shared reviews with people all over the place)

I am using Acrobat 8 and Frame 8. If Acrobat 8 requires a Server application, 
then the wizard should specify that. The error message should state something 
useful like, Missing Server App Name of Server App

RJ - I took your suggestions and it still doesn't work. I moved the PDF to a 
local drive, set the file to be shared by everyone, gave everyone permissions 
to it, and I still get the same error message: The file destination provided is 
not valid. Enter a valid file location.

 Every time I get to the screen entitled, Decide How to Send the PDF

 get the error message, The file destination provided is not valid.

 I've tried it with a local drive in a publically shared folder with
 permissions set to Everyone. Same error message. Also tried repairing
 Acrobat. No help, same error message. Does it even work at all? Has
 anyone ever had it to work or is it totally bogus?

What version of Acrobat are you using? The last time I looked at shared 
(server-based) reviews, it required a special Acrobat server application (I 
think this was Acrobat 7; maybe 8). With Acro 9, that no longer seems to be 
necessary, but I'm OK with emailing comment-enabled PDFs to my few reviewers (I 
don't really need them to see each others' comments). 

In Acro 9, there's supposed to be a wizard to help you set this up. Knowing 
Adobe, the problem may be that they're not clear in explaining/describing what 
you need to do. But take a look at this: 

http://help.adobe.com/en_US/Acrobat/9.0/Standard/WS53DFBF0D-427E-46d1-829C-BBAED285F67D.w.html
 

And the topics that follow, like this: 

http://help.adobe.com/en_US/Acrobat/9.0/Standard/WSB7237F9D-E90A-4c6b-8C0D-58C7B2063B1D.w.html
 

It sure sounds like all you need is a network folder. But it's not clear if the 
PDF you want to share should be in that network folder as you step through the 
process or not. 

Of course, if you're using an older version of Acrobat...

I'd forgotten about using calibre (it's free) and will convert PDFs to ePUB

Hi Richard,

If you look at the EPUB datasheet PDF, you will see that EPUB is an
XML-based file format designed to reflow text according to screen size.
Since EPUB is XML-based, you should be able to produce output from
FrameMaker that can be converted to EPUB format. As far as tools, you can
look at Webworks EPublisher (I think that's what they call it now), or
possibly Mif2Go. If you are using structured FrameMaker, you may be able to
use XSLT to transform your documents to the EPUB format.

I am sure there is more to it than I am describing, but my point is that you
don't have to switch to InDesign to produce EPUB files.

FM8 running on Win XP.

On some files that were converted from MSWord by an intern last summer, I have 
noticed that the last paragraph in the fm file cannot have its properties 
modified nor can the paragraph be deleted. By modifing properties I mean that I 
cannot change the tag name or any properties. It is like the paragraph itself 
is locked.
Unfornately the properties of the tag are causing other issues in the document 
dealing with header and footers. 
All I really want to do is to delete the paragraph, that would solve the 
problem, but it cannot be deleted. Other parts of the document can be easily 
edited without issue, it is just the very last paragraph. The other odd 
behavior I see is that being the last paragraph it is not showing the section 
sign text symbol like I have seen in every other Framemaker file.
I have tried Wash via MIF with no success. 
Does anyone have suggestions as to how this might have happened or how I can go 
about fixing it?
Thanks,
Roy

RE: Shortcut for Repeat last?

2011-02-02 Thread Jeff Coatsworth
Yes, me too - however I found that tweaking my maker.ini file to paste text 
(unformatted) solved the issue of having to save the Word doc to text  then 
copy/paste). The other downside to FM10's F6 function is that unlike Word, it 
will still pop confirmation dialogs rather than just repeating the last command 
 response. So you still end up clicking or hitting enter to confirm what you 
want to do (I notice this most when dealing with rows in tables).

It's almost worth the upgrade cost just for that feature.

The one thing I've hated in the switch to FM9 (from Word) was that there was no 
F4 (repeat last) equivalent. It's particularly frustrating whenever I move 
another Word doc to Frame (I never import, I always save the DOC to text and 
reformat from scratch in FM - there are too many issues in large Word docs for 
me to trust a straight import. I'd much rather *know* I've started with a clean 
slate). 

One keystroke beats three any day.

RE: Need Advice on Upgrade Strategies for FM and Acrobat

2011-02-09 Thread Jeff Coatsworth
Not sure why your SMEs would need Acrobat if you're the one pulling it all 
together in the TCS. You'll probably find the volume licensing from Adobe for 
TCS is cheaper than getting FM10  Acrobat X for each SME. Besides, if you load 
Captivate on them, you just might get some videos embedded in your FM docs from 
them ;)

Subject: Need Advice on Upgrade Strategies for FM and Acrobat

Hello Fellow Framers,

I need your advice on how to best recommend a strategy for new Frame and 
Acrobat software purchases/licensing/upgrades/maintenance contracts, etc. I 
apologize for the lengthy email with many questions, but I'm sure I'm still 
overlooking some important points.

SOME HISTORY
I currently have the TCS1 package FM 8 (structured), Acrobat 9, Robohelp, 
Captivate, on Windows XP SP3. For 2+ years, I've been the only FM user here 
(everyone else uses Word). Frame's strong points are helping me to develop and 
maintain large amounts of new technical documentation. So, I've won some 
support for it, which I am really thrilled about.

THE OPPORTUNITY
Now there is an interest in purchasing FM for possibly 3-4 SMEs who will be 
drafting documentation for my project. These folks perform engineering and 
testing functions (writing is not their primary task), but their manager sees 
value/potential in using Frame vs. Word and wants to gain momentum with it.

THOUGHTS / QUESTIONS

-- We should all use the latest Frame (10). Should I upgrade Frame only on my 
PC, or should I really consider the full TCS3 upgrade?  I already have 
Photoshop. The other folks don't need Robohelp/Captivate, so TCS3 is overkill 
for them.

-- All of us need a compatible Acrobat (I have no idea what to expect if we 
install Frame 10 on one of these laptops with an older version of Acrobat). 
Should I recommend the latest Acrobat for everyone just to be safe?

-- Are there some reliable, yet also fairly reasonable 
licensing/upgrade/maintenance strategies to keep us all in sync?

-- What's beneficial to do now in case we should add Frame users again down the 
road?

-- What gotchas, headaches, and other things must I think about before I jump 
into the deep end??

Since day one, I've not had any problems with my TCS1 setup, so I'm quite 
nervous about introducing new software versions without introducing unwanted 
special effects. :-)

I also know that there will be a learning curve and I'll have to train the 
others, create cheat sheets, and so forth. And, I must get familiar with the 
new interface, too. I'm confident I can manage these things. Also, I've made 
every effort to keep the template streamlined and simple, so hopefully, that 
will help, too.

THANKS IN ADVANCE for all words of wisdom and experience in this area!! :)

It is not the word count but the amount of time to round trip the
document, engineering costs from Frame to xml and back. The second part of
that is the DTP. Frame does a cleaner round-trip than word so less DTP time
for cleaning up the formatting.

I hope that helps. We translate into 29 languages where I work and we cut
the cost by about 30 to 50% using Frame and that was before we switched to
DITA.

Actually, in my case, I was only talking about word cost. This was borne out
by the detailed quotes I received. Other fees were accounted for under
different line items (any reputable LSP should do it this way so you can see
what is involved in a job and what the associated costs are).

I also did a large RFQ about 15 months ago with 11 different ISO qualified,
medical device LSPs and even though they were all given *exactly* the same
set of directions, the same TM and the same FM-based file set, the word
counts were all over the place. Counts for New Words alone ranged from a low
of 27,863 to a high of 36,305. That kind of discrepancy adds up quickly. 

FYI: The MS Word equivalent number was 28,239.

Subject: File sizes, frame 9, comparison times

Hello all,

I'm technical editor for IEEE 802.11REVmb,  this is a spec for a wireless LAN 
protocol,  and is current 2,600 pages in length.
The standard is a single book file comprising about 40 .fm files.  I'm using 
Frame 9 on Win 7 64 bit.

I have had two problems recently with this:

1.   Slow operation with large files.

2.   Slow compare operation.

The process we go through in IEEE standards is that large chunks of 
contributory material (called amendments)
are prepared and approved elsewhere.  Then I get to roll in the change.   The 
last two amendments were 400
and 200 pages in length,  consisting of a mixture of straight additional 
material and marked up changes.

Two files in particular have grown a lot recently.   One is a 50/50 mix of text 
and tables.   The other is pure text.
They are both about 400 pages in length each.  (The source with text/tables is 
4MB in length,  the other one is 2MB).

Recently operations have slowed down.  Frame has started running out of memory 
(screen not rendering properly,
using a system font instead of proper font) when doing lots of work in the 
mixed file. Cross-reference operations
(the bane of my life) take forever (i.e.,  10s user-interface response to any 
key,   30s pause after adjusting xref).

I have to prepare a redline document,  which I do by a book compare with a 
previous release.With these files
of this length,  and a substantial number of operations,  this appears to be 
slowing down.   I killed one compare on
the purely text file after 4 hours of CPU time on a fast desktop machine.

I have split these files into 4 chunks,  and life has improved a lot.   OK,  
400 pages is a long file (in terms of could
I read it before bedtime),  but 4MB is not much compared with the memory that 
frame occupies (200MB) or the
amount of memory on my machine (2GB).

Have others observed this behaviour?   Am I missing any tricks in dealing with 
big files?

 Oops, sent too soon. The shortcut Esc s c works in any FM version. But if 
 this is FM 9 or 10, there are other options.

On a Windows system, the Alt s c shortcut also works.
But this only works to *open* the cross-reference dialog rather than to *keep* 
it open. Keeping the dialog open is not possible (at least in the old UI--I 
haven't needed/wanted to migrate to FM9 or FM10 yet so I only can speak to 
versions through FM8), because it is a modal window. When the dialog is open, 
it always has the application's attention and you cannot perform any actions in 
the document window (not even moving the insertion point) so there is no point 
in keeping the dialog open. Has this changed in the new UI? Is it now non-modal?

FrameMaker is a 32-bit application, not a 64-bit application. As such, it 
cannot use any more than a 2GB address space. Using FrameMaker under any 64-bit 
version of Windows with more than 2GB of memory only assists FrameMaker in that 
such additional memory can dramatically reduce system paging operations to and 
from disk. Generally speaking, the 64-bit versions of Windows have a much 
higher memory requirement threshold than the 32-bit minutes of Windows have. 
Under no circumstances would I ever recommend use of Windows 64-bit with 
anything less than a full 4GB of main memory, with 6GB or 8GB much more 
rational choices for that environment.

Subject: File sizes, frame 9, comparison times
Hello all,

I'm technical editor for IEEE 802.11REVmb,  this is a spec for a wireless LAN 
protocol,  and is current 2,600 pages in length.
The standard is a single book file comprising about 40 .fm files.  I'm using 
Frame 9 on Win 7 64 bit.

I have had two problems recently with this:

1.   Slow operation with large files.

2.   Slow compare operation.

The process we go through in IEEE standards is that large chunks of 
contributory material (called amendments)
are prepared and approved elsewhere.  Then I get to roll in the change.   The 
last two amendments were 400
and 200 pages in length,  consisting of a mixture of straight additional 
material and marked up changes.

Two files in particular have grown a lot recently.   One is a 50/50 mix of text 
and tables.   The other is pure text.
They are both about 400 pages in length each.  (The source with text/tables is 
4MB in length,  the other one is 2MB).

Recently operations have slowed down.  Frame has started running out of memory 
(screen not rendering properly,
using a system font instead of proper font) when doing lots of work in the 
mixed file. Cross-reference operations
(the bane of my life) take forever (i.e.,  10s user-interface response to any 
key,   30s pause after adjusting xref).

I have to prepare a redline document,  which I do by a book compare with a 
previous release.With these files
of this length,  and a substantial number of operations,  this appears to be 
slowing down.   I killed one compare on
the purely text file after 4 hours of CPU time on a fast desktop machine.

I have split these files into 4 chunks,  and life has improved a lot.   OK,  
400 pages is a long file (in terms of could
I read it before bedtime),  but 4MB is not much compared with the memory that 
frame occupies (200MB) or the
amount of memory on my machine (2GB).

Have others observed this behaviour?   Am I missing any tricks in dealing with 
big files?

RE: Framemaker 9 Index

2011-03-09 Thread Jeff Coatsworth
If you're indexing a number of .fm docs within a book, check that the 
pagination is set so that it flows properly from beginning to end - this looks 
like it's picking up index marker hits in multiple .fm docs that have different 
pagination rules applied. So within that doc it makes sense, but on the book 
level it doesn't.

RE: Generating a single FM document with conditional text from several documents

2011-03-25 Thread Jeff Coatsworth
Not exactly clear as to what you are trying to do, but you could copy text from 
one .fm document to another (just remember to import any formats that you have 
in use in the one file that aren't present in the other) and then apply a 
conditional tag to the text. That way you would end up with one .fm doc that 
had all the text in it with various parts conditionalized.

RoboHelp seems to get a low-level bookmark name from the FrameMaker book when 
naming the section headings. Has anyone seen behavior like this before?
I am using FrameMaker 10 and RoboHelp 9. My output format is WebHelp.

The steps I follow are:

1.   Create a new blank project in RoboHelp.

2.   Right-click on Project Files, choose Link, choose FrameMaker Document.

3.   Choose the FrameMaker .book file

4.   Right-click on WebHelp and choose Generate, to generate the WebHelp

5.   In the RoboHelp TOC pod, click the AutoCreate TOC button.

Any help or advice is much appreciated.

I get irregular, but multiple crashes in a day, which is getting very

Here's what I know:
It's a bog-standard user manual.
Document is short (250pp), uses only a few fonts, two conditions, and a
dozen variables.
There are three generated files (TOC, IX, and 1 LOP).
320 referenced graphics (.pngs, stored 1 level below the text files).

I have been trying to use the Track edits feature (no, not the show
changebars, although I have that on as well), and this appears to be
the culprit.
The other possibility is RAM (only 1GB).

So... thoughts?

Thank you, for your attention. It appears others have this same issue with the 
paragraph designer etc.

I have had my T5500, 64 bit, Win7 for about 6 mo. The first T5500 I purchased 
was crashing all the time so Dell replaced it and upgraded from a dual to a 
quad and added 4 g of ram to make the 12 g and upgraded the graphics card... 
trying to keep their customer happy.

I have more RAM than our old server did. Too bad Adobe is non-responsive; they 
should post a fix.
If anyone at any time finds a solution to this Adobe bug I would appreciate 
an e-mail.

Thank you again for your time and response, I really appreciate this forum.

I'm afraid it may not be worth very much as a data point, because there is a 
world of difference between Windows XP and any 64-bit version of Windows Vista 
or (more likely in Karen's case because she does refer to a new Dell) Windows 
7. When the issue is the stability (or lack thereof) of an application, the 
specific version of the OS is likely to be at least as much a factor as any of 
the hardware details with the possible exception of the amount of RAM. And the 
migration from 32-bit to 64-bit addressing was a major change that seems to 
have caused compatibilty and/or stability issues with a lot of apps.

FWIW, I've been using FM 9 with these specs at work since December, and I've 
never run into the bug you're experiencing:

Dell Precision T3400
Win XP SP 3
80GB HD
2.67 gigahertz Intel Core2 Duo
64 kilobyte primary memory cache
4096 kilobyte secondary memory cache (3.3 GB usable installed memory)
64-bit ready
Multi-core (2 total)
Not hyper-threaded

I'm habitually running Office 2003, Acrobat X, and Illustrator CS 5 and half a 
dozen other things. My FM 9 books incorporate AutoCad and Inventor graphics, 
often run twice as large as yours. I sometimes don't reboot for a week at a 
time.

I'm skeptical of Dell's allegation in your case.

RE: Index Entry Formatting

2011-05-26 Thread Jeff Coatsworth
It's not clear from my e-mail client if you're trying to bold the index entry, 
and just 1 of the page refs or both of them. I'd suspect that the marker text 
would have to be identical to consolidate the entries and bold them, but I have 
no idea how you would bold the page refs within the marker - I'd be more 
inclined to attack it from the IX ref page itself.

Subject: Index Entry Formatting

Framers,

I'm trying to get an index to format entries in a special manner.   I can get a 
page number to bold in a list of entries without a problem.   However, I also 
want to bold the entry itself.   When I do this, I get 2 separate entries in 
the index.

For example, here's my desired output:

Adams, Geoffrey 3, 5

Here's how FrameMaker formats the index:

Adams, Geoffrey 5
Adams, Geoffrey 3


My entries look as follows:

Adams, Geoffrey[Adams, Jeff]Bold

BoldAdams, Geoffrey[Adams, Jeff]/BoldBold



I've tried several variations of these.  I can get the page number entry to 
bold using the first method.  However, if I try to bold the entry itself, it'll 
end up as 2 entries in the index from the other entries that are not bolded.   
I can make the bolding with a FrameScript, just thought I'd check to see if 
someone's got this to work.

Thanks,

Brad

Niether.

Minimally, you need to open the template (or template book, if it's a
set of templates) and save as a FM10 file, and then
resave the book file as well.

What I'd recommend though is to perform a second step -- save each new
FM10 template file as a MIF file so remove any junk characters or settings that
have been inherited. Then SaveAs each MIF as an FM file to create your
working template files.

Then import the formats from our FM 10 template(s) into your working
FM 10 files.

I'm assuming that you have already created a backup directory of your
FM 7 files...

With a 64 bit Win7 system, I'd be looking at adding more RAM to start with. 4GB

Subject: FrameMaker 9 Crashing

Hi all,

In the last week, I started experiencing intermittent crashes of FrameMaker 9. 
I have not noticed any particular pattern of actions that seems to cause the 
crash. I will have FrameMaker open for some period of time and then it crashes. 
The last crashed happened as I was fixing a broken cross ref that linked to a 
heading in another file. FM crashed as I was fixing the link in the cross ref 
dialog box. Not sure if that's related. Also, the crash reports have different 
internal error codes so it seems doubtful that its the exact same issue but its 
not like I can decipher what those are trying to say anyway so who knows :). 
Please note that I ran FrameMaker 9 without a problem on Windows XP SP3. I 
recently upgraded to Windows 7 and have been successfully using FM9 for about a 
month and a half since then.

I can of course forward the crash reports if someone thinks that would be 
helpful for diagnosing the problem. I am tempted to just uninstall FrameMaker 
completely and then delete the left over data in the user directories. Though 
since I have TCS 2.0 maybe I should delete the whole thing and reinstall that 
but what a pain. That takes forever to install!!

Here are my specs:
Technical Communication 2.0
FrameMaker 9.0p255
Windows 7 Enterprise, 64-bit
4 GB of RAM
Intel Core 2 Duo

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Joseph Lorenzini

RE: FrameMaker and RoboHelp Combination for Single Sourcing

2011-06-09 Thread Jeff Coatsworth
Yes, it's possible - I do the same thing (only generating WebHelp instead of 
CHM). If you want both types of output to look the same, you'll have to do some 
CSS tweaking to bring the appearance of the CHM help into line with the 
formatting present within your FM PDFs. First place to start is with the 
Conversion Settings within RH when you import - that's the first chance you 
have at mapping your FM paragraph  character formatting to RH's styles. You 
can save that off in an .isf file for future use. Also, you can apply (I 
believe) a single CSS file to all topics when you create your CHM. I created 
one called apply2all.css that contained all my tweaks that gets applied to all 
topics and overrides the individual css files that each topic gets created when 
a FM doc is imported.

Subject: FrameMaker and RoboHelp Combination for Single Sourcing

Hello,

I am using Adobe FrameMaker 10 as source files for generating the PDF output 
and RoboHelp 9 for generating the CHM output.

I am unable to use the Import option in RoboHelp (to import the .fm files) as 
the CSS and master pages are very different. The entire look and feel of the 
help file changes if I use the import option.

Hence, I started maintaining 2 different sources for 2 different outputs. The 
end user documentation both PDF and CHM files require localization. For this, I 
must maintain one single source files and generate multiple outputs (Single 
Sourcing).

So I wanted to know:


* Is it possible to maintain single sourcing in the scenario where the 
styles are different for PDF and CHM outputs?

* If Yes, please let us know how to do it?

* If No, then please suggest an alternative way to do it.

Also, it is mandatory that only one single source file is maintained for 
multiple outputs as localization is involved.

Regards,
Mythri

The FM10 version numbering and font settings are identical to the FM9 version,

Not sure what The space is there means. What matters is what's in Paragraph

unchanged by the conversion?

Assuming it is, what about the numbering settings for the file? How do they 
compare with the same settings pre-conversion?

Here's a wild guess. If the file is one chapter in a book and normally gets its 
numbering from the book, when you open it standalone, the $chapnum variable 
usually retains the value it had the last time the book was updated. Maybe the 
conversion for some reason interferes with the ability to recall that previous 
value, and everything will be fine once the entire book is converted and 
updated. :-)

I'm trialling GolehTek's BookMover and have found an anomaly, just wondered if 
anyone else had.

For the most part, I find it a powerful tool. However, on the odd occasion it 
doesn't pick up a series of pictures which are scattered elsewhere on the 
network and not in the same folder structure where the Framemaker Files reside 
e.g.

Our folder structure is:

ANYTOOL Main folder  Manual  Drawings
Under Drawings it could be split into a minimum of 2 subfolders.

The Book file I used was in a structure like this but the images were in a 
different tool's folder structure.

Have I missed something when setting up the script? Should I have tweaked it 
slightly? I've checked the little manual that comes with it and can't see 
anything glaring.

I suspect I'm out of luck on these, but it doesn't hurt to ask:

FrameMaker 10.0.1.1402
Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit


1.   When I am reconciling index entries, I keep all the individual book 
files open in separate undocked windows, which keeps them from opening in the 
primary workspace as I edit a zillion index markers. With 10-20 windows open, 
it becomes difficult to know which window is the currently active chapter 
(sometimes I need to open that window a bit larger to check context of a 
marker) because there is ZERO color difference between active and inactive 
windows. I have not found any way to make the active file window stand out from 
all the others. This appears to be a Framemaker issue rather than Windows, as 
all Aero effects are disabled on windows generated within FrameMaker


2.   I need the i-frame text position indicator (cursor) within the 
document (not the hovering cursor that moves as you move your mouse) to be more 
prominent on the screen. I frequently lose track of where I am, and have to 
either hit up and down arrows to see where the text indicator is moving. 
Ideally there would be a way to set the color, thickness, and blink frequency 
for it, for no other reason than aiding accessibility.

Thanks in advance.

I have had to add a new Condition to my books which requires me to

I have tried to install the update to 10.0.1.402 by two methods, but in both 
cases I get 
the following message from the Adobe Application Manager:

  The following Updates were unable to install. If You wish to install these 
updates,
  please fix the problems below and retry:
  Adobe FrameMaker 10.0.1 Update
  Installation failed

Method a) Download the zip, extract and execute AdobePatchInstaller.exe
  (extracted to the TEMP directory or any other)
Method b) Help  Updates...

I'm reluctant to uninstall the current version Fm-10.0.0.388, because I do not 
know 
whether the beta bug is still active: hamper the installations of FM-7, FM-8 
and FM-9.

Any suggesttions?

Thanks, Roman and Michael for Your suggestions.

It turned out, that only a re-installation of 10.0.0.388 solved the issue.
- The installer does not know about a repair installation
- Installing the patch with admin rights didn't the trick

After the patch there was not subdirectory with previous files (as known from 
FM-9), Hence 
it is not clear, which files had been replaced...

What me really annoys with the newer FM installations is this: You can not 
define a custom 
destiniation directory. In this case the program ended up in 
H:\Adobe\Adobe\AdobeFrameMaker10 (to much of Adobe). I had to move it into a 
more senseful 
area with Application Mover (Funduc.com)

RE: Import PDF Comments doesn't seem to work

Did the originating FM file get saved after the review PDF was created? My 
understanding is that the FM file needs to remain unchanged to allow reviewer 
comments to be imported.

RE: Thanks re can't get a pdf from FM 10

2011-08-18 Thread Jeff Coatsworth
Since I think you mentioned that all you have installed was the version of 
Distiller that came bundled with FM, that version is considered headless so 
you won't see the full program wrapper that comes with a full version of 
Acrobat.

Thanks for all your suggestions. I'm swamped at work, so haven't been able to 
fully explore the problem yet. I am now able to print to a pdf, although saving 
doesn't work yet. There appears to a be a problem with one of my job option 
files.
I checked the other job options and made sure I wasn't printing to a Mac or not 
checking Convert CMYK, then mif-washed the file (to use Art Campbell's 
phrase). I owe you all more extensive and explicit answers, which I hope to 
have time to research in the next week or so.
I would like to know how to get my Distiller window open when the job is 
processing. Right now Distiller is an enigma wrapped in a mystery.

We recently hired two contract writers and we are in the process of trying to 
install FrameMaker 9.0 onto new computers. Part of this process involves 
deactivating Frame on some other computers that are no longer being used. We 
have noticed that on all of the computers the Deactivate option under the Help 
menu item is greyed out. Has anyone else seen this, and is there a solution to 
getting the deactivate option to appear?

After I was forced to move to Win 7, FM 7.2 crashed every time I drag-selected 
text. Running it in compatibility mode for Win XP SP3 solved that problem, but 
made opening and saving files very slow. Updating a book took forever. 

I've started experimenting with different compatibility modes. Right now, I'm 
using the Vista mode, which seems stable and a little faster than the XP SP3 
mode.

No, I haven't installed Virtual PC. Maybe I'll try that at some point. Have you 
used it? If so, how does the performance hit compare to that from compatibility 
mode? It seems to me it would be greater, even with hardware assist. But maybe 
that's not a valid assumption.

Don't you see that this is a mirror argument? Let me rephrase what
you're saying:

 What I object to is putting the burden and responsibility on the engineer, 
 rather than where it belongs...on the writer. I've worked with very few 
 writers who wanted to improve their involvement in product development or who 
 even cared. Most writers I've worked with just want to do what they are told 
 to do; they don't want to get into the nuts and bolts. IMHO, this requirement 
 is setting we engineers up for failure. Just because the company wants the us 
 to communicate more effectively, it doesn't mean that the writers want to, 
 are motivated to, or would willingly cooperate with such coaching. 

Don't look at it as a burden, but an opportunity to collaborate.  Yes,
engineers work very differently from writers, but a writer's honed
skills at audience analysis can certainly be reverse-engineered to
look at author-analysis, see what their workflow and workloads are
like, and work WITH them to develop means for improvement.
