I recall that there was a simple solution to the problem of

PDFs from FrameMaker... But I can't recall what that solution

find it in the archives for Techwr-l or FrameUsers.

I'm as vague in my memory as you seem to be, but I had this
happen at my previous job a couple of years ago. The problem was
in my printer driver somehow. Seems like I remember that I had
to _save_ the FM file making sure that a color-printer driver
was selected as the print-to-printer. The color-printer _driver_
had to be actually _installed_ on the computer generating the
file. And maybe there is a setting in the Print Properties or
Options dialog box that enables selection of Color or greyscale.

Making sure we had a color printer driver installed and selected
as the saved printer and that the option for the color printer
was to print in color was the solution, if I recall correctly.
