Hi Dan,

The ARPF converter does not have 'remove images' option. It gives the option
on which size images to take but that is all.

In the setting box, the file shows that the mage is there, but it seems to
get lost in the synch.

As for the Palm, I'm using the Palm 500, but the world of Palm is also new
to me and I cannot find the menu that sets image preferences.

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 >
Show Images.

If you've still got problems, let me know.

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.
