If in fact it works "sometimes" but not others, the problem has nothing to do with having multiple distillers on your system. If you installed the standalone version of Distiller that came with FrameMaker, it would be available to uninstall from the Add/Remove programs control panel.
I would suggest that for reliability, you print to the Adobe PDF PostScript printer driver instance in lieu of using the "save as PDF" feature. Please advise if that works consistently. - Dov > -----Original Message----- > From: Adam Schweitzer > Sent: Friday, June 15, 2007 5:49 AM > > I am having a problem trying to save Frame documents as PDF > files using the File->save as command.
