I use Pagemaker 5.0 myself - but here is my "insight" as to what is
1. Under "Page Setup", do you have a "Compose to Printer" option? If yes,
then make sure this is set to the printer you are using. Also, make sure
that under Print, that the "Type" and "Print To" options are set correctly.
2. Concerning the graphics, if they are showing up alright but the links
aren't there, then a copy of each of the graphics is included in your
Pagemaker file. You should be all set - you can always relink them later,
especially if you think the graphics will be updated.
