Adding to Fred Ridder's reply:

-- Please make sure that your evaluation version is updated to 8.0.2
(Help > Updates), which fixes almost all issues introduced in the 8.0 release.

-- Also new in FM8: basic support for SWF import (carried over to online
formats), and U3D import (carried over to PDF)
