We distribute our docs to the "outside" world using ps files created
from Frame docs. I've never been able to "open" a ps file and view
it in Framemaker. Do your customers that are able to "view" the doc
have FrameViewer also ? Your customers that can "view" the doc based
on a ps, are they able to edit it ?
Maybe I fell asleep, this is real news to me. Once we move our
doc file to a ps format, neither us or are customers have been able
to view the doc for editing purposes. Tell me how you do it ?
