    Computer Specs

    1) G5 - OS 10.3.3, 512MB Ram, Power Mac G5, 1.8GHz,

    2) G4 - OS Z1-9.2.2, 896MB Ram, Power Mac3,5, 733MHZ


    Issue:
    I have bitmap Photoshop images, 340k, 75x16mm at 1200 pixels per inch, saved
    as tiffs using LZW compression, these files are imported into FHMX 11.0.2, on
    the G5, then saved as a Freehand Doent, when the file is opened into FHMX
    11.0 on the G4, the images that have been placed in the origional doent
    move up by at least 6mm, and sometimes the equivilent to either the left or
    right of their origional position upon opening file.
    I have checked the prefs in both versions of Freehand and see no obvious
    difference in settings.

    Does anybody have any suggestions as to how I can remedy this issue.

    Kev,
    FHMX 11.0 handles bitmaps differently than the previous and subsequent
    versions do. The difference in placement is caused by a white border area
    in your bitmaps. Older versions would place a bitmap starting at the lower
    left corner of the actual image *in* the bitmap, such that if there was a
    white border, the image was automatically "trimmed". In v11.0, the image
    starts at the lower-left-most corner, regardless of any extra white space.
    The issue was addressed in v11.0.1, so if you update the FHMX on your G4,
    the problem will go away. Short of that, you could manually trim the
    bitmaps in a raster editor like Photoshop to fix your files.

    Hi Bill
    Cheers for the advice, makes perfect sense, unfortunately FHMX 11.0 cannot be
    updated to 11.01 on the G4 (OS 9.2.2), as the next updater for that will only
    update for OSX 10.2.6 and later, which makes things a tad awkward.
    I guess the only work around for now is to as you say trim back in Photoshop
    so their is no white border area on
    the bit maps.

    cheers
    Kev

    One thing I used to do before the problem was addressed was to
    automatically place a 1x1 pixel dot in the bottom left or the bitmap.... the
    bitmap would then never move and be easy to align with other bitmaps.
    For example, many years ago before we had an FM dot capable RIP, I would
    get a CMYK image, separate the channels and make them into bitmaps with
    an FM dot. Then in FH place them over each other (set to overprint
    coloured in their different colours - CMYK).... this was an issue as the
    whitespace wouldn't register and they would appear different sizes.. I
    fixed it using the 1x1 pixel dot in the lower left... so as long as I
    aligned by the lower left, I could be sure they were perfectly aligned.....
    ahh the old days eh ;)
