You're not the first person to report this problem.
I doubt you're doing anything wrong, it's just FrameMaker being buggy.
I'd encourage you to report it at Adobe's bug report page

A pity none of these experts ever manage to get their expert opinion manifested
in the FrameMaker user guide / online help, though!

Thanks to everyone who replied. I appreciate all your comments.
I will report the issue to Adobe as recommended by David Davis.
I have just saved the Book as a PDF (RGB selected) and all the images and text
appear to be present.
We will eventually wish to send to a print company though. I hope
Given the theoretical differences I'm not sure why you would expect RGB output
of CMYK colors to be close to what CMYK color should looks like.
Think of it this way, if you choose a Pantone color as a spot color, you'd
expect it to print exactly like as that Pantone color to paper. But to the
thats easy to explain:
When I use Illustrator or Indesign, a colour will not change its screen
representation if I switch from CMYK definition to RGB definition. That
is not a miracle or a question of who knows (these programs use HSB
definitions, and obviously the conversion
Since I started seriously learning FrameMaker (7.0) I have always been
advised against using SaveAs PDF but instead print to file using whatever
the name has been each version of the Adobe PostScript printer engine.
Takes af few more clicks but saves a lot of trouble.
Still do it several versions

Here are a few tips if you plan to send to a print company:
1. Use EPS or PDF graphics. FrameMaker normally passes everything
through the Windows GDI,
My recollection may be faulty, but I seem to recall Dov Isaacs saying the
issues with Save As PDF had been fixed a while ago.
Now if they can just fix the broken Esc keyboard shortcuts.

A recurring problem is that Dov Isaacs says something, and it’s repeated like a
mantra by everyone for the next 15 years even when subsequent changes may have
made that particular advice obsolete…
But then we also have situation when Dov tells that the advice *is* still
relevant, but for some
It’s definitely NOT easy to explain this. Color conversions are COMPLEX.
Anyway, RGB - CMYK conversion is lossy, and CMYK - RGB is also lossy.
What is the point of the RGB switch afterall? Why not just pass through what’s
input and remove this switch?

my point here is:
The CMYK option in FM is not something like a fancy gadget (that is how
I understood what Craig said earlier), but essential for a correct
colour representation in certain constellations.
Here is an example, I enclose a screenshot: 2 rectangular objects are
The reason this hasn't been fixed is that it's a Microsoft OS problem, not a
FrameMaker problem. It's been made better, but Microsoft is still the culprit.
Under the Apple OS, this was a non-problem because there was no translation
from CMYK to RGB. They were separate attributes.
