In maker.ini, do you have the WYSIWYG setting for printer fonts turned on?
As in:

; Space characters within a line using printer font metrics.
; Adobe FrameMaker always uses printer font metrics to calculate where
; linebreaks and pagebreaks occur. However, by default, the relative
; position of each character within a line is displayed on the screen
; using screen font metrics. This "looks" better on the screen but is
; misleading in that the positions of characters within a line on a
; printed page may be different than on a displayed page. In particular,
; if you are trying to position a graphic relative to a character in a
; line, you should change this setting to "On" which results in the
; the use of printer font metrics when displaying lines.
