Thread-Topic: How to get Frame-specified Web-safe colors to remain Web colors in distilled PDF?
Basic question: If the Frame doc has defined Web colors used throughout, how do I get Distiller to stop changing those colors in the PDF output? Background: As part of a major template overhaul to coordinate with corporate re-branding and marketing look-and-feel, I've defined our corporate Web palette colors (web-safe, Netscape 216) in FrameMaker, and used them for such things as headings, notes, warnings, and hyperlinks in body text. And then I distill the document, and Distiller converts my carefully specified 009933 and similar colors to generic blue, generic (screaming) RGB green, and so on. (If I wanted RGB spectrum colors, I'd have defined them in the Frame documents...sputter, sputter.) Specs: Windows 2000 Professional, FrameMaker 5.5.6/Windose, Acrobat 4.0.5 Distiller, Acrobat Distiller printer driver that installed with the (newly installed) 4.0.5 suite. (Checking properties does NOT get me a version number for the driver.) Solutions tried: 1 Changed Acrobat Distiller Job Options.../Color to accept colors unchanged. Same result. 2 Playing with colors in Print Separations dialog in FrameMaker print dialog. Disables Acrobat settings and won't distill. 3 Playing with the ICM settings in the Acrobat Distiller printer driver. Resulting PS file will not distill. 4 Read the Help in Acrobat Distiller on the subject of ICM and Color Job Options. No help. I bet one or more of you lovely folks has unscrewed this particular new-thing-I-gotta-learn more than once. I hope!
