Does the graphic prints ok on hard copy? If so, the problem is probably not in Frame but in your Acrobat settings. Try some of the different canned settings that come with Acrobat and see if any of them work ok. If not, try disabling graphics downsampling and compression on the settings you were using and see if that helps.

Hello all,

I&#39;m having some issues with FrameMaker 7.2 and getting it to display a
graphic when printing to PDF.

At the moment, all I get is a gray box where the graphic should be. I&#39;ve
tried referencing the graphic in a reference page, importing the graphic
from the same folder as the Frame file, changing the graphic from .tiff to
.png to .jpeg.

I&#39;ve also used anchored and unanchored graphic frames and even tried no
graphic frames.

But to no avail.

Does anyone have a suggestion that might work?
