SUMMARY:  Frame crashes when generating a PDF
ISSUE:  FrameMaker crashes when generating a PDF of a book created with the map to book command (FM8-DITA or DITA-FMx).
SOLUTION:  This may be caused by any number of issues, so far none seem to be associated with the DITA plugin (most likely, you'll find that it will crash when generating a PDF from any book). Some things to try are ..

1) Have you installed the latest FM update? (see http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/product.jsp?product=22&platform=Windows)

2) FM8 requires (is this true?) that the "Generate Tagged PDF" option must be selected.

3) Try deleting the FNTCACHE.DAT file then restart your system (C:\Windows\system32\FNTCACHE.DAT)
