Odd behavior of my printing continues. Phenomenion One: File acquires errors while open for printing. An old document with many photos printed fine. Another printed without error, once. Then with file open and no saves, each successive printing as pdf, had more grayed graphics. Occurs without

Your odd file names are created when trying to do an automatic timed save, and/or Frame crashes and attempts to create a recovery file and doesn't clean up its temp files automatically. Completely normal. Given that you're running an antique software package on a totally unsupported OS, I'm

Try creating a new document and importing some of the same graphics by reference. Does the same thing happen? Are the graphics located on a network or removable drive? On Tue, Jul 26, 2011 at 8:17 AM, Phillip Norman pjnor...@gmail.com wrote: I am using FrameMaker 5.5.6 in Windows 7 Home
