Save as Word/RTF/WordPerfect

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


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".


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
