I can address your first situation: check to make sure your .gif files do
not have a transparent background. Transparent .gif files ALWAYS distort
when distilling to PDF, and Adobe doesn't make it easy for folks to find
out. Give your .gif files a solid background (white, if you're planning to
print PDF's), and try distilling again.

I hope you can find an answer to your second issue, it's not one I've ever
dealt with.

Good luck!

I'm having some problems creating and printing out a pdf-file.

a) When I'm converting a masterdocument from Word into pdf-format, all my
pictures appear blurred in the pdf-file. This could be caused by the fact
that most of them are in gif-format, but using another format (bmp for
example) sucks up a lot of memory. Any suggestions?

b) When I'm trying to print out my pdf-file, the first page makes the
printer go berzerk. This page is a colored page with the company logo on it.

A solution is to skip this page, print out the entire document from page 2,
and then print out page 1 seperately as image. Unfortunately, this solution
is highly unprofessional when presented to customers. Anyone?
