> Hello. I'm having trouble bringing up EPS graphics imported by reference
> in FrameMaker 7.2 and FrameMaker 8 documents. JPG, TIF, PNG, and other
> formats load quickly. However, a good sized EPS graphic imported by
> reference can take 5 minuets or more before it shows up. This only happens
> when working off the server. If I copy all files and work locally, EPS
> graphics show up almost immediately.
> The same EPS graphics load just fine in other applications (FreeHand 9, MS
> Word from Office 2003). The IT tech has done data transfer rate benchmarks
> and data is moving back and forth between the server and my laptop
> normally; laptop is an IBM ThinkPad T60p wide screen, with 3GB RAM, ATI
> graphics. The EPS graphics load just fine on my old Pentium III
> workstation.
> Any insight as to what's happening would be appreciated.
