Thank you, Schlomo,

I normally do print to .ps and distill using the watched folders feature. 
However, working on new development projects, I am constantly being asked 
for drafts of books other than the ones I am working on. Also, I often 
have to publish specific page ranges. When it was working, the Save As 
feature was a nice, quick shortcut. 

I did get the Save As to work by deselecting the Generate Tagged PDF and 
using the High Quality Print job option. The Press Quality job option 
still erased text--both inside and outside of tables--even with tagged PDF 

So odd.

Turn off "Generate Tagged PDF", which may cause some text to be invisible, 

in conjunction with "Save as PDF"
(see for a link to a sample 
demonstrating this problem).

Better yet, avoid using "Save as PDF" -- instead, print to a .ps file and 

If the problem persists, additional items to check are the PS driver 
resolution and (less likely) the fonts being used.
