Hi Patricia Did you try saving as .mif and then as .fm again? If that doesn't work, you can open the .mif file in a text editor, find the colour definitions and manually delete them. That should do it, unless the Word document is doing something weird. If it is, saving the Word document as RTF

Thanks for the thoughts on this troublesome conversion. This is UNIX, so Distiller doesn't display. PDFs in UNIX convert 1st to a file with a .tps extension (temporary post script), then to a .pdf file from there. With Distiller "under the hood", so to speak, some of the info that's available
