TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I am also creating Palm versions of our documentation
for use with Acrobat Reader for Palm. So far, I've
had great success with the ARFP converter, both for
full and text-only versions of documents. (File size
is an issue for Palm users, so long docs are made
available both w/ and w/o graphics)
First suggestion: Check the settings in the ARFP
conversion tool. Be sure that under Preferences
the "Remove images" box is unchecked.
Next, check you Palm device (or Palm emulator if you're
checking docs that way - a great tool BTW) and
ensure <g> that it's set to show images: Tap > Menu >
If you've still got problems, let me know.

Subject: Palm Docs
I'm currently trying to put one of quick start manuals into a Palm doc,
using Acrobat Reader for Palm OS (Beta 2.0).
I'm working out of FrameMaker 6 (source) and can tag the PDF ok, but am
having trouble transferring graphic files. They show up on the PDF on my
system, but disappear when I put them into my palm. I suspect that the tags
are not reading the graphics (.CDR), but cannot figure out how to tag them.
