Thanks for the tips.  They did work on a paper I authored in Frame that was
a single document.  They did not work for the multi-document book I'm
working on.  Is there perhaps a difference when adding registration marks to
a book instead of a single file?  Am I going about this in the wrong way?  

Do others generate books as a single pdf or as a file with many pdfs
included within it?

Two things might help in the Print dialog box:

- You select the Registration Marks option you want from the drop-down list.

- Deselect Generate Acrobat Data. For whatever reason (I suspect someone
will fill us in), you can't get registration marks with that option turned

Hope this helps!

Subject: Registration Marks and PDF generation

I am working with a document that is a special size- 7.5x9 in.  The
publisher we use understandably needs registration marks on our pdf file to
know where to trim the pages for publishing.  My problem is this- I have
figured out how to insert the registration marks when I convert to a pdf
using the save as>pdf method.  My boss, however, insists that I convert the
book to a post script file and then distill to a pdf, which as far as I can
tell removes the registration marks from the document- at least they don't
appear in the pdf.  I have been so frustrated for so long on this issue.
Does anybody know how to insert the registration marks on the Frame files
before converting to a post script and still have them appear on the pdf? 

 I have searched through several months of archives of this list and only
found one thread on this topic that had advice that didn't work for me.  Any
tips would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.
