Subject: Losing colors during PDF conversion


I am working with FM 7.2 in Windows XP

I am experiencing a problem creating PDF documents from FrameMaker. I
illustrations in CorelDraw 10 and export them to EPS files. I import the
files (by reference) into FrameMaker. When I convert the FrameMaker book
PDF, the EPS files retain their color but colored text using process
colors defined in FrameMaker lose their color and become grayscale.

How can I get the FrameMaker-defined colors to retain their color
the PDF conversion process?

FYI: I am using the AdobePSgenericPostScriptPrinter driver to create
postscript files and Adobe Distiller 6.0 to convert to PDF.

Thanks in advance for any assistance you can offer.
