TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
There's a bug in Frame for the Mac that if your graphic has a thumbnail of
it for the icon,(Photoshop, Graphic Converter, and Illustrator all have
this option), the graphic is brought in at the resolution of the
thumbnail, not the actual graphic. Check to see if any of the problem
graphics use thumbnails. If not, it could just be a graphic that doesn't
appear well on screen but prints okay.
