Since upgrading to FrameMaker 2015, FrameMaker crashes when we paste a text frame into a graphic frame. I work with a team of more than 20 FrameMaker 220.127.116.113 users, and we're all getting this behavior. I have tested with a new FrameMaker document to confirm that the issue isn't our templates, styles, graphics, and so on. These are the steps to reproduce the behavior:
We work in an unstructured environment. We're all running Windows 7, but one colleague has tested on Windows 8 and gotten the same results. I have personally tested this behavior on multiple computers.
Greetings from Adobe...!
I will test the workflow at my end and update you soon.
I can get it to crash in my version of FM2015 as well [on a Win7 Ultimate platform]. The weird part is that it seems to work and then takes about 3-5 seconds for FM to crash [there's the Windows crash sound and FM simply disappears. No log file is created.]
I also tested it on FM12, and it does NOT crash.
We are able to reproduce this issue and currently investigating this at our end. I will let you know once the fix is available.
Had a similar issue.
On the Reference Page of my document, I have graphics, such as labels, annotations, which I reuse throughout my document.
If I copy and paste these graphics directly onto the image frame, Framemaker hangs for a few seconds and then crashes.
Instead, I first place the graphic in the anchor frame and then drag the graphic to where I want it on the image.
I hope this little insight will help.
Thanks Stephen. My own workaround was just to make sure that the image onto which I wanted to paste the text box was not selected when I did so.
In the meantime, I have received notification from Adobe that what I'm experiencing is a bug:
We are working on this issue and have logged a bug # 4111649 (for your reference).
