Shlomo, Thank you so very much. The book PDF setups now "stick" and the Save as PDF is a bonus. I'd avoided Save As ever since all the early troubles.

When specifying the PDF settings for the book, make sure to first select all items In the book window (including the top "book" entry), then use Format > Document > PDF Setup (or proceed directly to File > Save as PDF). "Save as PDF" works fine in conjunction with FrameMaker-to-Acrobat TimeSavers; at least with FM8 or later, no need to restrict yourself to using print to .PS and then distill.
