Subject:Frame to PDF From:Jim McAward <jimmc -at- CHYRON -dot- COM> Date:Thu, 3 Dec 1998 11:02:20 -0500
I've used Frame for about 4 years, and for the past three of those years
I've been publishing both paper and PDF versions of our handbooks for
distribution on our public Web site.
Frame is a cool program for working with large documents - IMHO there's
nothing better on the market, period. And, for making PDFs, there's a
more-or-less seamless method for conversion that makes selected paragraph
formats into bookmarks, and all TOC/Index and cross-refs into hyperlinks.
Since Adobe's controlled Frame since v5, this integration between Frame and
Acrobat makes sense.
I love it. Our customers love it. My bosses love me.
We're currently evaluating new tools, and
we're wondering how FrameMaker does at converting
files to PDF.
