Re: PDF Printing issue...

If you print to the "Acrobat Distiller" printer instance or "save as PDF"
under Windows 2000 or XP with FrameMaker 7, you shouldn't be mucking around
with any PPDs. That is NOT your problem. Acrobat 6 is irrelevant to this.
You SHOULD download and install the latest updates to FrameMaker.

I am not aware of any problem of the type (pun intended) you mention.
If after updating your copy of FrameMaker to the latest version you
can duplicate the problem with a simple document and email me, off-list
of course, the document (and associated content) and resultant PDF file,
I can take a look at it.
