Frame output 15x longer than it should be

Postby ed_d on Thu May 15, 2008 7:00 am

Greetings.

When I build my Framemaker target, the generated files are much, much longer than they should be. For example, what should be a five page document turns into 80. Usually there are 1-2 lonely lines of text at the top of each page, but sometimes those line stretch vertically down the side of the page. The same goes for text in tables (the table sizes are also far too large).

I have used the sample CSS files included with Flare and I have also imported formats from other Framemaker documents. However, I still got the same result. Any suggestions?

Flare 3.1
Framemaker versions 6 and 8

Are you adjusting any of the import options (like the one about empty topics)?

Hi lacastle,

Those options are only available for import, as far as I know. I am trying to produce Frame output.

Sorry. I think I read your post wrong.
I don't export to FrameMaker, so I'm not sure what the problem is.
Good luck!

I'd double check that there isn't anything weird in your master pages and stylesheet. It sounds like the page definition or the margins may be out of whack.
Until next time....

Can you suggest any fields to adjust?
