Cybele, This is most likely due to different fonts being used on the two separate machines. It is most likely due to you each printing to a different printer using a different driver. Try closing out of FrameMaker on both machines, set Adobe PDF/Distiller as your default printer. Open Frame along with the document on both machines and verify that the spacing is no longer changing.
It is also possible that a setting in your maker.ini file is different and one of you is using screen metrics and the other printer metrics. Let me know how the first test goes.
