I am running my FM 2015 on a VMware fusion with Windows 10 OS on a Macbook. While generating a FM book, I came across the following book error report: Could'nt update this book because it contains no openable nongenerated files" This book can generate a PDF on a different Windows machine and tested. Please help me with a suitable solution to address this issue so that I can generate a PDF.

Hi praveen_arista, I have exactly same the same setup, with no issues. I would start by opening the book, holding the Shift key + File > Open all Files in Book. Do you get any error messages? If so, address them. Then, with all the files open, try File > Save as PDF again.

Hi Barb,

Sorry for the delay in the reply. Your workaround helped me. Since the PDF

generation took a while, I downgraded to Win7 and it works faster and PDF

generation takes less time.

Thanks,

Praveen

Hi Barb,

While accessing a FM file, I came across another issue that deals with

missing fonts. This issue prevents me from generating the PDF. Fonts such

as zapfcalligr BT font, Zapfdingbats, etc. Is there a reliable repository

from where I could download the missing fonts.

Thanks in advance,

Praveen

I know that there are a number of companies that offer free font downloads, but I have always avoided those for professional publishing jobs so I can't recommend one.

You can license Zapf Dingbats from Linotype:
ITC Zapf Dingbats® Medium Font - Licensing Options | Linotype.com.
