Re: Color consistency from Frame to PDF

Unfortunately, under Windows (all versions), all non-EPS content
is output as RGB, not CMYK. Spot colors are effectively lost.
You can use any one of a number of solutions to convert them back
to CMYK or spot colors. The first is a Distiller pre-processor such as  
Grafikhuset's product, Chameleon CMYK Creator,
The other is to use an Acrobat plug-in, such as Enfocus Pitstop,
to change a particular RGB color, after the fact, to a Pantone
color, CMYK or spot.

In the PDF result, the EPS graphic matches my Pantone color catalog but the text and other graphics are a different lighter color.  My Distiller job options are set to "Press."
