We have several customers that jumped from 7.2 to 9.03 with very little difficulty. 9.0 was a disaster, but if you patch up to 9.01, then 9.02 and then 9.03 *before* loading old documents I don't think you will meet much trouble (our customers work with *Structured* FrameMaker and don't use the

2009-10-01 Thread Jacob Schäffer
Framemaker has an issue with its communication with some printer port types when, - and only when, and only in certain configurations - the Print to File switch is checked. One symptom is that Framemaker seem to "hang", which it actually doesn't - it waits for a response from the printer port.

Migrating to InDesign is a *** H U G E *** task and may not be able to provide enough functionality. InDesign is fantastic in many aspects, but Framemaker definitely has its advantages and is -- for some tasks -- far superior to InDesign. /Jacob

Nancy, I think you see a strange problem that is not normal for FrameMaker. I have not used 7.2 too much yet, but I have never seen ths with any version up to 7.1, but I don't suspect that Adobe has implemented/released such a stupid naming-bug with 7.2. I have seen many errors with 7.2,
