To be exact, Frame reformats to the printer driver--or at least displays
the message. The message displays:
--even if you change from a PCL to a postscript driver for the same
--even if you are not using printer-resident fonts.
In the same way, Frame announces that font information has changed every
time you add, delete, or (in version 4.0) set fonts as active or
inactive in the Adobe Type Manager--regardless of whether the document
you're opening is affected by the changes.
If the program is going to be so sensitive, I wish its messages were a

Ruled by the God Apollo's golden mean--
In scorn of which we sailed to find her."
In distant regions likeliest to hold her
Whom we desired above all things to know,
Sister of the mirage and echo."
