How to edit files for "Frame Live Link" in Calc to work

 

PROBLEM

When trying to live-link Calc spreadsheets into Frame,  Print To FrameMaker option is desensitized in Calc's print dialog box.

BACKGROUND

Here is what the Calc 3.0 manual says:

Select FrameMaker from the Print To: option menu.  If the FrameMaker choice is desensitized, it means that your inseteditors file is not setup correctly, or you have not restarted FrameMaker since you changed that file.

SOLUTION

The following lines need to be added to the following FrameMaker file:  $FMHOME/frame/.fminit2.0.ps/inseteditors

Note: Make sure IslandCalc is in your path before starting FrameMaker.
