My company has just made the decision to convert all of our hardcopy
manuals into PDF format on cd-rom. We have one manual that is 6 volumes,
each volume containing approx 350 pages. The manual was created in
FrameMaker 5.1, but we can convert to 5.5. We want to condense these files
into one large searchable PDF file, using the article feature in Exchange.
We would like to make the PDF searchable by articles, using chapter
headings to define each article.

Can anyone share their experience with this feature and with similar
projects? Should we do any special formatting in Frame first, before
converting? Is the file size too large? Ultimately we want things to be as
easy as possible for our customers, and we have a great opportunity to
start from the ground up with this project, so we want to do it right.

We use Windows95 on a PC-LAN.

TIA, or
