Kevin-- One possiblity is to set the printer to "B&W" when you print the hardcopy version.
Another (and what I do) is let my Printing company do the conversion from a color PDF.

Our content development team produces a myriad of training materials. Our printed materials are produced via Frame 7.2. The graphics are grayscale TIF files (which works best in print production). In many cases, I am presented with color graphics (JPG or PNG files), which I convert to the grayscale TIF format, then import into Frame. The final PDF is created using Distiller and everything is hunky-dory, but we are now maintaining two versions of the same graphic - one in PNG or JPG and one in TIF. What we'd ultimately like to do is single-source the color graphic files and convert them to grayscale TIF when the PDF is generated. Is there anyway to automate this process? Thanks for any and all feedback! ________________________________ Kevin C. Rusnak, CDIA+ E-Learning Development Specialist, Technical Services Hyland Software, Inc.
