Missing page numbers while generating PDF from Framemaker book

Apr 3, 2012 6:17 AM

Tags: #font #issue #page #number #fm

FrameMaker 9 book files have the correct master page applied and page numbers appear right. However, when generating PDF, the page numbers including the footer is missing.

 

I created another book file, yet same issue occurs.

 

Also, tried generating separate PDF for each chapter, same issue occurs.

 

I have installed Univers font from ATM, I'm using WIndows XP. The Footer tags are in Univers font. Could that be the reason?

 

Please advise.

    Hi I am facing the same  issue as mentioned above : "Missing page numbers while generating PDF from Framemaker book".

     

    I am using FM 11.0. Tried using the hotfix above but it isnt helping to fix the issue since FM is installed on Windows 7.

     

     

    Please Advise...ASAP

    In another thread you claim that you are getting a hard error when printing to PDF - is what you get when you save as PDF dropping page numbers as described in this thread?

    When I save the book as pdf, I am getting a book pdf generated. But the book has page numbers only on a few of the chapters, and the rest are missing (Though having applied the Master pages and page number variables perfectly).

    So the numbering is visible within the FM docs, just not when you create a PDF? Is anyone else having this issue with the FM files? Are you able to share them - I'm willing to have a look if you'd like.

    We have seen a similar problem when the page# was at the right edge of the header or footer frame, and the tab that put it there was too far to the right.

    This is an old problem. It comes from setting tab stop positions in paragraph formats with the cursor in the text frame on the TOC reference page. Nothing wrong with this, EXCEPT when the master page text frame has been made narrower than the reference page's text frame. One way to avoid the problem or to fix it, is to set tab stops in a paragraph in the body page text frame, so the width is correct. Another way is to set the tab stops accurately by number, rather than by eye. Visually, the reference page tab stop will look correct, but the generated TOC uses the master page text frame - if it's narrower than the reference frame, this problem occurs.

     

    I seem to remember that this might have been fixed in more recent FM releases, but I think that's a false recovered memory, because this is not a bug, just a discrepancy in measurement. There's no way to expect that the prototype paragraph format on the TOC reference page can know if a tab stop will be out-of-bounds on the generated TOC page.
