FrameMaker files are proprietary; you can't reasonably expect a run-of-the
to invest in the application and training needed to support it. Normally,
you'd want to
deliver a lowest common denominator file instead: PostScript or .PDF. Or
find a printer
that specializes in tech doc work and who has FrameMaker (you may contact me
if you'd like a couple names of Boston-area shops), but that's likely to be
do that to generate PostScript.

We're having problems getting our Framemaker files printed with spot color
or with four color. The printers all look at us like we're crazy sending
them Framemaker files. Have any of you experienced problems sending
Framemaker files to printers. If so, how have you resolved them?
