Topic: Adobe FrameMaker 7.0p578 Update for Windows Released - English, French, and German (Via Email)

Today, Adobe has released an update to FrameMaker 7.0 to resolve a number

of anomalies associated with FrameMaker in the Windows environment and to
make FrameMaker “Acrobat 6-ready” in anticipation of the upcoming rel
of Acrobat 6!

This update fixes the TIFF graphics / gray box problems frequently
discussed on these lists.

Further information about this update (including prerequisites - i.e.,
version and previous update requirements), currently only available for
English, French, and German versions of FrameMaker, can be found at
. The upd
may be downloaded from that web page at the Adobe web site.

Important notes in preparation for Acrobat 6, both Standard and Professio

(1) Without this update, “save as PDF” in FrameMaker 7 will not work
Acrobat 6 is subsequently installed. Acrobat 6 changes the name of the
PostScript printer driver instance used for PostScript generation for PDF

distillation from “Acrobat Distiller” to “Adobe PDF” and also mak
es significant
interface changes in use of the system registry and parameterization of t
Distiller. Upon application of this FrameMaker update, your copy of Frame
7 continues to work correctly with Acrobat 5 and if and when you upgrade
5.0.5 to Acrobat 6, FrameMaker's “save as PDF” function will automati
adjust its operation to that upgrade without any further intervention fro
m the
FrameMaker user.

(As previously officially announced, we expect to ship Acrobat 6 in Engli
sh by
the end of May with other localized versions to follow.)

(2) FrameMaker 7 continues to support placement of PDF versions up to and
including PDF 1.4, i.e. Acrobat 5 compatibility. PDF files created with
Acrobat 6 that are marked as PDF 1.5 (you can choose to distill with PDF
PDF 1.3, or PDF 1.4 compatibility) and that actually use PDF 1.5-specific

features such as object stream compression or JPEG 2000 image compression

will not properly import into FrameMaker 7 if at all. For such PDF files,

you will need to save the PDF as EPS from Acrobat 6 and import the result
EPS into FrameMaker!

(3) Acrobat 6 is not designed to be concurrently installed with any versi
of Acrobat 5 or Acrobat Reader or Adobe Reader of any version. We most st
recommend that you use separate computer systems or a dual-boot mechanism
a single computer to accommodate any need to support multiple Acrobat ver
and/or to do "previewing" of PDF files in a "Reader-only" environment aft

Two Passwords Are Better Than One: The Low-Down On PDF Security

For people who don't spend their time looking at PDF files in text editors*, PDF security is a sometimes misunderstood beast.

For example, those document restrictions that PDF files sometimes have -- no Printing, Content Copying, Page Extraction, etc -- are essentially useless unless the PDF also has a User Password.
