Yeah, I get it. I think my point is that Adobe might not see any reason
to provide a Frameviewer anymore, since they might see it as competition
for PDF and wouldn't be thinking of a situation like yours.

We used to use floating licenses for UNIX years ago, but I haven't heard
of them for a PC. If they don't have them, maybe you could set up a
centrally located computer that has Frame installed on it where people
could view your docs.

[Not to be snippy or anything, but the Frameviewer is probably something

called Adobe PDF. ;-) Kay]

Kay - no offense taken - and for the record we are already using PDF.
;-)

Perhaps a little background might be helpful. The reason that I'm
asking is because I am the only person with FrameMaker in the office and

it is installed locally. If I am unavailable, people are unable to see
the docs. I would like for them to be able to do that, so I'm looking
at different options for them to be able to do that without me having to

create a PDF for them. Another option that I'm thinking of is using
watched folders, but as I'm also using a version control system and
people tend to go there to check out docs, I'm looking for something
that would be a bit more streamlined.

Thanks,
