There may be a problem with the Framemaker Import of Ileaf 7.X ASCII format.
Have you tried an ileaf,v6.X ASCII .doc file yet? I believe that as with
v6.X, the 7.X version allows users to SaveAs ... the previous version:
ileaf,v4.X = SaveAs v4 or v3
ileaf,v5.X = SaveAs v5 or v4
ileaf,v6.X = SaveAs v6 or v5
ileaf,v7.X = SaveAs v7 or v6 <--- ??
|_ try this option.
We are running ileaf,v6.1.1 or I would send the file(s) you requested.
