Hey Monique,

After trying multiple files, I closed out all open files, then closed
down FrameMaker (version 8, like I said earlier).

Waited a few seconds, then re-opened it and a file to try with no luck.

By the way, my normal procedure is to print to select my "adobe"
printer from the FrameMaker printer window (I never do a "Save as pdf").

I also know that I am supposed to uncheck the box for "Rely on system
fonts only . . ."

After clicking on "Print" in FrameMaker, I get the small progress
window alight, showing that something is happening, complete with the
succession of page numbers being printed.

But when I check the file directory, it shows the new ps file with 0
kb every time (since today about 3-ish).

I then closed out everything and powered down and waited and rebooted
and opened Frame and opened a file and yep, all the same results.

This time, though, I created a Word file, then -- like in Frame --
printed it via my "adobe printer" and voila! -- nice litle pdf created.

Neither of my co-workers have this problem, and we all got our stuff
around the same time.

In the meantime, I used the handy little "Archive" utility to get
this book in a folder on my thumb drive so I can get this done at
home over the weekend where Frame is also installed.

Any ideas?
