This is a known issue, actually you have two issues.

One - Save As PDF has never really worked reliably.

Two - delete fntcache.dat, check in windows\system2 and i386 folders. Delete
both, if you have two, and then reboot. There is a fix from Microsoft that
is supposed to fix this issue. Yu should also be able to increase your
virtual memory to prevent it from happening again.

Subject: Disappearing text using Save As to PDF


Jessica Nealon made this post in 2006:

"When I use Save As to PDF my books, whole chunks of text disappear in

PDF file. It appears to be totally random. For instance, one table will 

have several blank rows blank followed by competed rows."

I am also using Frame 7.2, and I wonder if anyone else knows about this
problem and about any bugfixes.

My experience is that FrameMaker apparently puts the text in table cells
behind the table when saving as a PDF. When the table has shading, this
makes the text disappear entirely. Printing straight to the printer
works fine.

I have not found anything helpful on the Internet in general, which
strikes me as strange. Also, I'm sure this is unrelated to the previous
problem, but it does exacerbate the situation: Printing to my Acrobat
PDF "printer" fails for an unspecified reason and printing to a
PostScript file produces this cryptic error, which means I have
absolutely no way of making a pdf out of my document.
