I work with SDL Studio 2011 and have to translate MIF8 files. However, there is one problem with Framemaker. The position numbers (freely positioned, not in text frames) added to the illustrations (in fixed frames) shift when the mif-file is converted back to Framemaker. This is what the company responsible for the layout told me. They work with FM 7 and convert the files to MIF 8, since SDL 2011 does not accept MIF 7.
Has anyone had this problem so far? And is there a solution?
Any help will be highly appreciated, since the documents are thousands of pages with a lot of illustrations.
