In 1994 I wrote the first book in my Secret Code Breaker series using AmiPro.
I saved the file (many copies) and I am considering making some small revisions before 'converting' it into a PDF file (using PDF955). It worked very well except that the file had no images.
When I opened the xxx.sam file I had saved, I discovered that all the images were 'gone' and AmiPro gave me a message that said -
"Cannot find a library for frame. Frame contents will not be displayed."
Can anyone tell me what I can do to fix this problem?
Since I didn't know what to do to fix this problem directly, I tried deleting the entire frame/image and creating a new one. However, AmiPro will only allow me to 'use' image files with a .sdw extension. The original images were .pcx files and I can't remember how I got them into the frames when I wrote the book. If I could figure out how to do that I would be able to 'restore' the images in that manner.
In the meantime, I tried importing the file to WordPro so I could edit it that way. Every time I did that the last thing WordPro (or maybe it was Windoze ME) would do as it completed the import process (I could see the file in the WordPro space on my screen) was give me an error message - "WordPro has caused an error in (unknown) and it will close now." Of course, my only choice was to click on OK and that would shut down WordPro. It suggested that if this condition persists, which it does, that I reboot, which I have, more than once.
What can I do to restore the xxx.pcx images to the xxx.sam file of my book?
Also, any idea why WordPro (or Windoze ME) won't let me import the file?
