Your Frame files may be saved in View-only format. Try unlocking them (in
Windows) by pressing Esc F l (lowercase) k . On the Mac try
Command-Option-e.

When you print the book file, don't use PDF writer. Instead, print to a
Postscript printer that has been routed to a file, and then distill the
file into a PDF. Or, you could use Acrobat Exchange to stitch the PDF
files together into one PDF file.
