| My resident Frame expert (and Word hater) reluctantly tells me there
| no way for reviewers to perform electronic markup using Frame files
| short of buying Frame for all potential reviewers in the company.
| FrameViewer would allow others to look at the documents, but does not
| allow markup.
| Is there a cheap or free solution I'm missing that would allow us to
| Frame and still have electronic markup?
We do electronic reviews of Frame documents all the time using PDF as
the file interchange format. We generate PDFs of the Frame documents;
reviewers mark them up in Acrobat and return them. Note that reviewers
cannot do this with Acrobat Reader; they must instead have either
Acrobat Business Tools or the full version of Acrobat.
Personally, I'm not a big fan of electronic reviews, but many of our
clients like them, and this process does work.
