First of all, when exchanging FrameMaker files between FM 2017 and FM 12, you should not go through MIF7, as you will lose Unicode and MIF 7 is really, really old. Better save the FM document as MIF 2017 document.That said, can you give us some more details? Like, which graphics formats are used, are all the files (MIF and graphics) in the same folder like before or do you move the MIF to some other folder …

Hi ramb8102099:

Are the FrameMaker files on a shared drive that is accessible to both computers, or are you copying the files from one hard drive to another? With linked files, you must retain the relative paths, or you break the links.

Are you getting the Missing File dialog box when you open the .fm files on the second computer?
