Save as Word/RTF/WordPerfect

Affects: FrameMaker / FrameMaker+SGML 5.x, all platforms

Description:

FrameMaker's "Save As RTF" or "Save as Word 6/7" filters only work with relatively smaller files. With larger files, especially containing graphics, the filters are known to work "forever".

Workaround:

Create another copy of your source FrameMaker file, delete all graphics, and convert to RTF. You will then have to reinsert the graphics in Word. (Note: using conditional text to hide the graphics will be of no help, since the FrameMaker filter converts all contents, including hidden conditional items).

Available Fix:

Omni Systems' MIF2GO
