FrameMaker 11 omits embedded pictures when publishing to epub 3

Nov 20, 2012 5:49 AM

I am trying to publish a book containing multiple embedded pictures to epub 3, but for some reason the FrameMaker 11 omits the pictures when running the publish script. The pictures also disappear when publishing to html help, but not when merely publishing to pdf. What may be wrong?


I am running TC4 on win64 with everything updated

    What's the graphics file format of the imported image files?


    What conversion have you specified for the output, assuming that ePub workflow is similar to XML and HTML, where image destruction is controlled by:

    File > Utilities > HTML Setup

    [ Options \... ]

    File Format for Images:

    (_) GIF  (_) JPEG  (_) PNG


    {any new choices in FM11?}


    And since FM converts image formats for some workflows, those files have to reside somewhere, so access and permission problems could arise.

    What is the file extension of the graphics? If I recall correctly, only

    GIF, JPG, PNG, and SVG are acceptable for EPUB. So FrameMaker might

    ignore, for example, TIFs. I don't have TCS, so have never used the EPUB

    export feature.
