Re: FrameMaker+SGML cashed when buidling a PDF

Hi Adrie,

I've occasionally had files with rogue errors like these. The MIF cleaning 
technique doesn't work, and there's some file glitch that persists, 
crashing Frame.

I've often been able to isolate the problem to a single page, paragraph, 
and even character. If the files aren't too long (or if the job is very 
important) try this. Print one page at a time to PDF (or use Save As if 
that's faster) until you see the error. Or split the file into sections, 
find the section with the error, and isolate it. Then edit it out.

Others may have different (and better) suggestions, but that's what I'd do. 
BTW, Frame 6 or 5.5?

Good luck,

Tom Neuburger
