I am the only tech writer at a small software company and I'm looking
for some advice.

I recently completed a manual (about 125 pages) in FrameMaker 5.0. I
just found out that our training department wants this manual
converted to MS Word, because no one can see or print the document in

I suggested we purchase Adobe Acrobat. I explained the many uses and
benefits of using the portable document files, but I think my
suggestions are falling on deaf ears.

I guess I have two questions:

1) Has anyone successfully converted a Frame Document to a word
document, and what do I need in order to do this (filters) ???

2) How much work will be involved??

3) Can anyone help me come up with a convincing argument for going
with Adobe Acrobat??

If you don't want to clog the list, you can email me privately at
