The Archive utility (a script Adobe created that packages all of a book's files, including images regardless of their source location) does not work in FrameMaker 2015. Is there a new version available? FrameMaker's built-in Package function only pulls in images if they're in the same folder as the book.

Hi,

We have provided an in-build Package utility under File->Package menu in FrameMaker 2015 which can be used to package all your files. But all the files should be under the root folder, otherwise it will not pick up your files in the package.

If your root folder of the book file contains all the files and then also some files are not picked up, then you can mail me the book file via dropbox at rakumarg@adobe.com to isolate the issue.

Regards,

Raj

The images in all of our documents are stored in one central folder location, not under the individual documents. Numerous documents share the same images, so it would be foolish to copy the images in each document's directory. That would make it difficult to update the images in the future, and to find images for reuse. I can't imagine any professional tech comm group doing any different. The old Archive utility used to pull in all images files, regardless of their storage location. The new Package utility is useless in comparison. Please release an updated Archive script.

yes, the current 'package' function is pretty well useless.
