Mac OS X 10.4.8, AdobePS 8.8.0, Acrobat 6 Pro, FrameMaker 6 and 7.0 for Mac.
History: I have taken over a dozen grayscale books to press using a FrameMaker 6 + AdobePS -> PDF workflow, without pain or any objections from printers. Now, I output a FrameMaker 6 greyscale book and the printers complain that it's full of RGB objects - which it isn't. Acrobat 6 Pro's separations preview shows only CMYK and three spot grays, as expected and intended. However, if I run 6 Pro's '4c+spot' test, it objects to *every single item of text*, complaining that it is neither 4c nor spot. If I take a sample chapter into FrameMaker 7 and repeat the output,the 4c+spot test passes. The only significant event that has occurred since successful output of greyscale books is the installation of FrameMaker 7.0 on the same machine. My questions: . I am wondering if this is related at all to the CMYK black problem I posted previously (FrameMaker 6 default black is CMYK, FrameMaker 7 default black is 100% K). . Could there be anything about the installation of FrameMaker 7.0 that could mess with a FrameMaker 6 + AdobePS -> PDF workflow? Thanks in advance. -- Steve [foxed]
