had a bad print at dear Kinko's of a training doc I did. They printed in
their format from a PDF.

My fault I'm sure: "the trick is to understand the process." Guess I don't
know that trick yet. I'd like to hear more on this thread, if possible. The

Try this.

I have found that 150 dpi is close to optimal for screen captures. In you Snagit preferences you can set the capture dpi, do it at 150 dpi.

In FrameMaker, import your screen captures at 150 dpi. This gives you no scaling problems in the graphics.

Embed all fonts.

I also recommend that you subscribe to the FrameUsers news group (
