Hi Jim, I'm a step further yet and can produce pdfs, but I don't really understand what's happening. It seems to be a font problem. There is a setting in Adobe PDF printer properties: 'rely on system fonts only; do not use document fonts'. If I uncheck this option, all goes well and a PDf is produced. Unchecking meanns that embedded fonts wll be used in stead of system fonts. As far as I know I have all fonts installed. I also didn't know that FrameMaker could embed fonts in a document. So what's the trick?
Anyway, I can produce my pdf's now and deliver ... It's time to to shut down the PC. Thanks! Vriendelijke groet, Wim Hooghwinkel Adobe Certified Expert (ACE) in FrameMaker iDTP International DTP and Documentation Consultancy tel. +31652036811 info at idtp.eu www.idtp.eu
