I'm sorry, but that's just not true. Save As PDF most definitely uses
Distiller. It's just that Adobe decided a while back (Acrobat 6, I
believe) to change the name of the Windows printer instance from Acrobat
Distiller to Adobe PDF. But it's still Distiller doing the, um,
distilling of the PS.

As for the problems people have with Save As PDF, most of them would
disappear if FM were always pointed to the Adobe PDF printer instead of
to whatever the system's default physical printer is. The SetPrint
plugin from Sundorne (www.sundorne.com) can take care of that.
