When you choose File > Save As PDF from FrameMaker 7.2 or older, the TPS (Temporary Post Script) are not deleted and the PDF might not automatically display.


You have Acrobat 8.x or 9.x installed.


Solution: Install FrameMaker 8.

Solution 2: Use Distiller 7.x that came with FrameMaker 7.2.

  1. Uninstall Acrobat 8 or 9
    • ensure you have deleted the Adobe PDF printer that was installed with Acrobat 8 or 9.
  2. Browse the CD and open the folder distillr.
  3. Click on the Setup.exe and run the installer

Additional Information

When Distiller 8.x has done the conversion it sends a command to FrameMaker pointing to the temporary PostScript files that has been created by FrameMaker. However, the details get changed to Unicode that FrameMaker cannot interprete correctly and the .tps does not get deleted.

Unfortunately Acrobat 8 and 9 do currentliy not have the options to uninstall only Distiller.
