Many thanks to those who took the time to respond to my post about
"Resolving Edits," I will be meeting with the person in question next
week, and will post the outcome, if I survive <g>.

Around here (Silicon Valley) "Shrink Wrap" is a term used primarily by
recruiters looking for writers who have produced manuals for commercial
off-the-shelf software. "Must have produced shrink-wrapped
documents..." is a common phrase in job postings and ads for writers
for commercial s/w companies.

What are people's experiences wrt the stability of FrameMaker 4.0 for
Windows. We (five in our group) are all running it on similar computers
(486-66 w/ 16Mb RAM, 1GB HD), and experience large differences in the
number and frequency of GPFs (General Protection Faults). This ranges
from one/week (my case) to four or five per day in the case of our most
junior writer.
Can the user do anything that directly influences this?
Does the size of the book affect Frame's reliability?
Does the number of book chapters open at once have an affect?
