Nope. Works Fine in Win98 with TTFs.
You need to install the PS driver for your OS. This PS driver needs to be
installed using the Distiller PPD. Set the printer to print only to a file.
When in FrameMaker, set the Adobe Distiller PS printer as the default. Use
no other printer. Use only the Distiller printer instance.
Use File|Print to create a *.PS or *.PRN file and then open Distiller to
create the PDF from the printfile. Alternatively, and only if you have made
sure to set the Distiller PS printer as the default, you can use File|Save
as PDF to create the PDF.
Has anyone had problems after installing FM 6.0 and not being able
or print a document as .PDF? I get messages that say cannot find a
compatible Post Script driver. The IT Dept. here has re-installed FM
3 times, re-installed the PS driver(s) and none work.
Thought I'd ask the Techwr-l list before I got to Adobe for support.
