I had this exact problem. I also had another problem. The following
two solutions will solve these problems, though I don't remember
which solves which. Still, both need to be done.

You need to get out your Frame 5.5 CD and use it to install the
Adobe printer drivers. You need to (1) replace your normal printer
driver with the Adobe version and (2) use the Acrobat Distiller
printer driver when you convert your document.

If you do both of these things, your problem will be solved.

Good luck!
