Hi everybody, I have a feeling that the answer I'm going to get to the following question is, Are you crazy? You can't do that! But, here goes anyway... I have documented programs on a menu. This menu is quite extensive and contains multiple submenus, each with their own programs. Right now my

Problem Importing Visio 2007 Drawing into Frame 7.2

Not in Frame, no. However, you can generate all the books as PDFs and then merge the PDFs (and include a cover/master page with bookmarks to the books), or create a meta-book of all the files, and create Section or Part pages for each of the component books. Art On Thu, Aug 28, 2008 at 4:55 PM,

Hi, Adam: Regarding the use of MIF and the spurious stuff in your MIF-to-FM conversions: * You can open a MIF file for editing in FM by pressing Shift while clicking Open, and choosing Treat Each Line As a Paragraph. * The proper way to save a MIF file for conversion back to FM is to save it as

Conditional text not removing extraneous pages

I got the answer: There was one page where a callout circle in a screenshot had extended beyond the anchored frame by a fraction of an inch. That was causing the page (and all previous pages) to show. Once we moved that callout circle back within its boundaries, everything went fine. Thanks

Hi Adam, Yes, converting back and forth between FM binary and MIF is considered safe. There are a couple of exceptions that I can think of: 1) If you save a FM document as MIF and then use an earlier version of FrameMaker to open the MIF document, you will lose "features" that are not
