Hi, Bob:

The true oracles have spoken and have left you wanting.<G>

I'm not smart enough to give up, so I'd suggest that if using 
the two-template approach in FM doesn't fit your workflow - 
and text for hard-copy printing and markup is your primary 
requirement - you could consider exporting the text from the 
PDF using full Acrobat, and opening it in FM for reformatting 
and printing to hard copy as double-spaced copy.

Although you can export graphics from PDFs, it's a separate 
task, and the graphics are numbered arbitrarily, so manually 
connecting them to their appropriate explanatory text is 
likely to be prone to human error.
