We have considered going to Framemaker (we purchased 4.0) and the
issue is not dead yet. We now use Ventura 4.2 (and love it).
Are you saying that in Frame, when you bring illustrations into the
directory ("import"), you can *not* copy changed illustrations, with
the same name, into the same directory and *automatically* update the
illustrations? Even old fashioned Ventura accomplishes this.
