Hi John,

Maybe a few aspects of the replies by Peter Gold and others went unnoticed.
Maybe my suggestion already fails at step 1, but would the be following be an 
option?

#1
Ask IT for a spare computer with a local admin account. That computer doesn't 
need network or internet access at any time.

#2
Install FM11 from the original install media and start a 30-day trial.
No internet connection is required for that. (I've been  able to the same on a 
virtual machine without internet access, using my original Adobe Technical 
Communication Suite 4 DVDs.) FM appears to be fully functional during the trial 
period.

#3
Save all your .book and .fm files in MIF 7.0 format and any other formats that 
might be useful.

MadCap Flare can open FrameMaker files. The PDF output might require
some tweaking. Get a 30-day free trial and see.

Same story for RoboHelp.

Excellent points, Scott and Rick. Someday I hope to be able to migrate to
XML, but that day isn't going to be soon, I think. Small company, training
time, you know the drill.

It's too bad for John that it sounds as if he's stuck between a rock and a
hard place. I wish I knew of a way to get him out of it, but if his files
are unstructured binary Frame, he's stuck. I am unaware of any program that
imports Frame that wouldn't cause him the same issues he's having now. 

(Mind you, that doesn't mean there isn't one, just that I've yet to come
across it.)

Re: [Framers] Compatability with FM11 non-structured files

2019-02-11 Thread Scott Prentice
Excellent point, Rick! But one clarification. Migrating from 
unstructured to structured FM does not necessarily give you XML files. 
You may just have structured FM binary files which results in the same 
problem that John is running into. However, if you do convert all the 
way to XML, and maintain your source as XML, you are free to switch 
tools at a moment's notice.


Another option (someone may have mentioned this, I haven't read the 
entire thread) .. would be to export to MIF at specific points along 
your workflow. There are tools to convert from MIF to other formats.


Cheers,

This isn't an unusual request (to migrate to another tool) .. but typically
when someone is a "FM user" with FM files, they would have FrameMaker
available to export to a neutral format.

FM isn't used by enough people to warrant creating a separate application
for migration.

Despite its age, FrameMaker is still a great tool for the task of
technical writing and publishing. However, security issues in the
computing environments where it's used have become serious
considerations, so, to wit:, hence, therefore, and etc.

Looks like my earlier response got truncated. Apologies for any

Would it be acceptable to install FM on a stand-alone machine, save

supports,

then copy these outputs to the network? Or, have that work done by a

If a non-subscription version of InDesign is used on the corporate

Filter

for Adobe InDesign <http://www.dtptools.com/product.asp?id=mfid> to
convert MIF files InDesign. Within InDesign's own limits and

the

For anyone else that may find themselves in a similar situation: this is an
advantage of migrating your unstructured FrameMaker files to structured
FrameMaker. Then you will have vendor-neutral XML files in case you decide
to move away from FrameMaker in the future.

FM isn't used by enough people to warrant creating a separate application

Adobe provides the ability to use FrameMaker to export to a number of
different formats that are useable by other applications, including export
into Word. It's hardly their responsibility to get other companies to
create import filters for Adobe proprietary formats.

How many people, based on company policy, have not embraced FM because there 
wasn't a migration path to another vendor so as not to be locked into a 
proprietary platform 

When I went the FM way, if I'd known, I would have gone a different way. I just 
assumed.

Re: [Framers] Compatability with FM11 non-structured files

2019-02-11 Thread Scott Prentice
This isn't an unusual request (to migrate to another tool) .. but 
typically when someone is a "FM user" with FM files, they would have 
FrameMaker available to export to a neutral format.


FM isn't used by enough people to warrant creating a separate 
application for migration.

Despite its age, FrameMaker is still a great tool for the task of technical

The issue is installing and licensing the application. It WOULD be

Looks like my earlier response got truncated. Apologies for any

confusion.

Would it be acceptable to install FM on a stand-alone machine, save as
MIF, and export/convert to formats of apps the corporate network

supports,

then copy these outputs to the network? Or, have that work done by a
service?

If a non-subscription version of InDesign is used on the corporate
network, a round-about approach could be to use the  DTP Tools - MIF

Filter

for Adobe InDesign <http://www.dtptools.com/product.asp?id=mfid> to
convert MIF files InDesign. Within InDesign's own limits and abilities,

the

conversion retains most, FrameMaker text formatting features and
specifications, and does its best to emulate page layouts.

One thing that might inform the long view is "If it ain't broke...," so
there may be lots of individuals and small and large companies still
chugging along with perfectly-operating back versions of FrameMaker on
well-enough operating Windows-compatible machines or virtual-machine
emulators, even, can-you-even-think-it...UNIX.

It may be necessary for IT and Adobe to work together to enable FrameMaker,
since Adobe requires the "phone home" and IT controls that capability. If
that isn't possible, then no, there is no way to open or edit the
FrameMaker documents you already have.

He's got Frame 11, sort of. If he could get that working again, he could use 
Mif2Go to export the MIF files to a number of formats, including Word, with all 
the styles intact.

Given the IT and AML compliance, though, I don't know if that'd be possible for 
him.

Re: [Framers] Compatability with FM11 non-structured files

2019-02-11 Thread john . x . posada
Hi Peter...it's not the process for exporting/converting that's the issue. I 
got all that. I did it all the time to allow my user base to make their edits. 

The issue is installing and licensing the application. It WOULD be installed on 
a standalone...mine. It still needs to validate by connecting to Adobe, and 
that's a problem.

BTW...all Adobe products do that, so bring ID into the equation does nothing.

Looks like my earlier response got truncated. Apologies for any confusion.

Would it be acceptable to install FM on a stand-alone machine, save as MIF, and 
export/convert to formats of apps the corporate network supports, then copy 
these outputs to the network? Or, have that work done by a service?

If a non-subscription version of InDesign is used on the corporate network, a 
round-about approach could be to use the  DTP Tools - MIF Filter for Adobe 
InDesign <http://www.dtptools.com/product.asp?id=mfid> to convert MIF files 
InDesign. Within InDesign's own limits and abilities, the conversion retains 
most, FrameMaker text formatting features and specifications, and does its best 
to emulate page layouts.

I think you'll have to talk to Adobe, and probably you'll need your IT people 
to talk to Adobe. To my knowledge, there is no way to edit a FrameMaker file 
without using the FrameMaker application. They're a binary format, and there's 
no method of extracting even the text from them. Used to be you could use 
FrameViewer to at least read them, but I believe that product was discontinued 
around the time Adobe bought Frame Technology.

If you already have PDFs of the files and the Adobe Acrobat application (not 
the Adobe Reader), you can export the documents to Word. You lose the 
formatting information (everything is variations of 'Normal') but not the 
appearance that you created.

You may want to consider PDF for a visual representation of the files and
MIF (Maker Interchange Format) for a text-based representation of the
content. MIF is would mainly be useful for recovering the content in
FrameMaker in the future if you needed to. Convert the files to MIF, archive
them, and uninstall FrameMaker.

Re: [Framers] Compatability with FM11 non-structured files

2019-02-11 Thread Harding, Dan
Dumb question, not being integrally familiar with FM's version history, but 
with what version did the "phone home for activation" requirement start? I 
didn't think it was until the last few versions. Is there a perpetually 
licensed FM version that doesn't phone home that you could get by with using?

other reasons, they have issues with any application where the workstation 
needs to connect to the "mothership" over the internet, even if it is for an 
authorization.

Hi John,

Forgive me for testing the loyalty you have for the people in your company, but 
the people that don't like FM installed on their network are idiots. If 
FrameMaker is the tool you are using to produce content for them, why wouldn't 
they want it installed on their network?

No, there is no tool besides FrameMaker that will work with unstructured 
FrameMaker documents.

Hi, guys...I have 5 years of FM files and my company doesn't like FM installed 
on their network.

Are there any other applications that can be installed and open native FM
11 files and retain most of the FM functionality, especially the book paradigm?

Thanks
