Working in unstructured FM10:
I would like to link to a string that includes conditional text and have that
link show the conditional text attributes (e.g., color and overline/underline,
etc.) in the linked-to string.
Note: In my experience, a cross-reference to a string that
I have two questions:
In a specific directory, adding a TOC file to an existing book always causes FM
to crash so that the book cannot be updated with the TOC file. (Note: Adding
non-TOC files to the book works fine.)
Does anyone have any experience with this phenomenon?
After years of using the FM Compare function to create both Summary files and
CMP files, my PC no longer allows this.
Instead of generating the Summary and CMP files, I get the following message:

Every so often, Frame19, which we've just installed (64-bit, Windows 10

It's as if something is causing the screen to "refresh".

In FM (all versions) I can create a table footnote (e.g., 1) and then add,
separately (in a different place), a cross-reference to that footnote (i.e., to
1) such that, in FM and in the generated PDF, the cross-reference to that
footnote will jump to the text (of footnote 1). In the
I have a particularly long book (about 30 files, 1200 pages total,

Working in a book, I have a condition (let's call it "XYZ") set as "shown" in a
(book-wide) condition expression.
I imported the expression (containing many other "equations" besides showing
"XYZ") to all the files in a book.
Some (but not all) of the files in the book have text
A cross-reference problem has cropped up in FM-to-PDF generation.
Links that work in an FM file (i.e., when you double click on a link, clicking
the resulting "Go to Source" button jumps you to the correct source)
do NOT always work when the file is converted to PDF.
This means that to

I've encountered an aggravating phenomenon that I need a fix for:
The second time I create a PDF from the same FM19 book, the PDF comes out at
about twice the size as the first time I do it.
Using FM19, I create a PDF by printing a book to a PS file and then distilling
