Hello TechWr....

I have been researching this problem and still am coming up short on the answer. Every time I export a Word doc to .pdf, I lose all of the color in my graphics. I have all of the boxex checked that say "keep color." Obviously, I am missing something. If you have any suggestions, I would very much appreciate it.

Check your printer driver. You should be using the recommended Adobe provided PS driver. You can download it from Adobe. This appears to be a fairly regular complaint, and I believe the main culprit is usually a print driver that is color blind.
