    We have to translate some documents containing non-translatable terms, e.g. trade marks like Adobe or terms from HMIs like Open or Close.


    How can I tag such terms directly in FM, so that the CAT tool (e.g. SDL Trados) marks them as not to be translated or even does not offer them for translation to the human translator?


    • A special term list does not help, because within a context some terms have to be translated (e.g. the term Open in bodytext), but within another context the same terms should not be translated (e.g. the term Open in HMIs).


    • I know, other tools provide "inner elements" like X-Trans for tagging terms. What does FM offer?


    Many thanks in advance.

  • 06/18/18--07:55: PDF Generation error
  • Hi,


    I am using FM12. Windows 10.


    Book updates ok, but when I save as PDF, I get the following error:


    %%[ Error: limitcheck; OffendingCommand: ÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿ ÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿ ]%%

    %%[ Flushing: rest of job (to end-of-file) will be ignored ]%%

    %%[ Warning: PostScript error. No PDF file produced. ] %%



    I would be very grateful for any assistance with this, please.


    Best regards, Denis

  • 06/18/18--08:56: Framemaker 2017 Account
  • We just installed FrameMaker 2017 under the IT guy's Acrobat account. I was going to sign him out when Frame warned me that signing out will disable FrameMaker. As the user do I need an account?

  • 06/18/18--15:18: Generating Bookmarks in FM17
  • I want to change the default level of bookmarks to None instead of default, but no can do, it simply goes back to default. I want to see if this setting helps the display issue with PDFs in a Web browser. The PDF looks perfectly find in Acrobat (all bookmarks closed) but on the Web page every bookmark is open and it looks messy.


    Any thoughts?

    How can I install adobe universal poscript driver on Windows 10 without getting into the loop?


    INF file from installation can be found here:



    Generic_Adobe_PostScript.inf -- inf install for generic PostScript output using Adobe ADIST5.PPD

    ; You will need to get ADIST5.PPD from Adobe, currently available at:


    ; Place ADIST5.PPD in the same directory as this .INF file, then add a printer,

    ; chose local port FILE:, Have Disk... and browse to this inf and "install anyway" when prompted.

    ; You should now have a new printer which prints to a postscript file.


    ; CIS 2011-07-14






    Signature="$Windows NT$"











    ; Manufacturer section









    "Adobe Generic PostScript Driver" = ADIST5.PPD, Acrobat Distiller





    "Adobe Generic PostScript Driver" = ADIST5.PPD, Acrobat Distiller

    We want to use the same book file to create content which will be used for printed PDFs and for online documentation.


    For cross-references, we'd like the printed version to include page numbers (i.e. Please see Policy ABC on page 123). 


    For the online version, we want to omit the page numbers and just have a hyperlink (i.e. Please see Policy ABC).


    Is there a way to do this in FM 2017?


    Thank you,

    I am using Adobe FrameMaker 12. My menu items will not display correctly if start the frame maker outside the office network. If I start the FM12 at work and then use it outside the office network them menu items will continue to display correctly.

    Has anyone seen this before?

    Is there a fix for it?


    Thanks in advance.

    I am developing a dialog based client for FrameMaker.
    I Created a dialog using .dre file to generate .dl and .xdi files


    In my client code I opened the dialog using F_ApiOpenResource(FO_DialogResource, (ConStringT)"MYDIALOG");

    and then F_ApiModelessDialog(MYDIALOG, dlgId); to display the dialog. The dialog appears as expected.


    How do I make the FM POD(Modeless dialog) re-sizable?

    Examples FM POD's for Markers, fonts, insets are all re-sizable. I want to achieve same behavior for my custom dialog.

  • 06/20/18--13:45: Assign an ID to an Element
  • When I right + click on an element, I can choose Assign ID to Element. Is there an ExtendScript function or method for doing this? Thanks.


    Alternatively, is there a solid JavaScript algorithm for generating an unique value? -Rick

    I began using framemaker because I couldn't add automatic revision lines with indesign, but now I'm a little puzzled as to how to manage all of the content.

    My project is quite large and has had many revisions, but where to start to set it up so it changes automatically when adding new information.

    Hello all,


    Some images are showing up fine in the .pdf (note the very top part of this image is a previous page having an image).  The bottom part (what appears as a blueish box) is actually an image that is not displying properly in the pdf.  I can select this blue box and copy/paste into a word document and the image is shown. 


    Not sure yet why this is happening to some of the images.


    Appreciate any advice.

  • 06/21/18--11:07: Adjusting Spacing in TOC
  • Chapter 1.jpg




    Above is a screenshot of my TOC file. I'd like the "Chapter 1" line to be a little farther away from the "Table of Contents" line above it. However, when I click in front of "Chapter 1" and hit Enter, it breaks the hyperlink. Is there another way to do this? Below is a screenshot of one of the master pages, in case it helps.

    Above is a screenshot of a TOC file. I added the Index to the TOC, and now the numbers do not line up on the right. I've tried clicking in the "Index" line, clicking "Right Tab" on the Paragraph Formatting toolbar (3rd arrow below), and then clicking below the ruler across the top directly underneath the rightmost triangle (shown below). The page number lines up and looks great until I update the book. When I update the book, the Index page number moves back to the left. Should I be editing something on the Reference Pages?

    I can easily create a document with two connected flows on the body pages. For example, I can create a new Portrait document and add an autoconnected flow tagged B to its Right master page. Once I've done so, I can go back to the body page and start to put content into either or both flows. As expected, FM adds new pages as needed. Flow A on p. 1 connects to Flow A on p. 2; Flow B on p. 1 connects to Flow B on p. 2; succeeding pages. The content on one flow may fit in fewer pages than that of the other. Also as expected, pages may become empty if I delete content and when I save the document, FM discards the empty pages.


    Suppose, however, that I have an existing multi-page document with Flow A but not Flow B. If I import master pages from the new document with both flows, I get both flows on every page. However, Flow B on one page is not connected to Flow B on the next page. There are several ways to see that they are not connected:


    1. Text symbols display an end-of-flow symbol in Flow B on every page.


    2. I can insert content into Flow B on a page other than page 1.


    3. If I add more content than will fit on one page into Flow B on page 1, FM adds additional pages between pages 1 and the original page 2 to hold the overflow.


    If I copy all the content in the original one-flow document to the clipboard, I can paste it into an empty two-flow document. The result is a two-flow document in which Flow A has the original content and Flow B is empty but connects page to page. I can use Save As to replace the original file with this two-flow version.


    Is there a way to modify the original document and obtain the same result? Somehow connect the multiple B flows that importing master pages creates?h

    Hello. I am using FM 2015 in a Windows 10 environment.


    I have set my printer to Adobe PDF and have opened all the files in a book containing about 20 files.


    When I put the cursor in an open file and select Save as PDF, the PDF Setup window is truncated:




    I can't grab the edge of the window to expand it.


    When I select the book file and select Save as PDF, I get the full PDF Setup for Selected Files window with no problem.


    I note that someone wrote in with the same problem but opposite behavior back in February of 2017. That person had a corrupted PDF setup window for the book file and got the correct window for the individual .fm files. A resolution was never posted.


    Any ideas as to why this is happening and how to stop it? Thanks.

    Using FM15, and every time I click the mouse to perform an action, FM seemingly hangs for anywhere between 30-45 seconds. Which is an eternity since I move quickly. Are there any specific settings I need to address to assist with buffering. I have 16GB RAM.
