Theresa, I think there may be an easier way -- If you have the whole
Acrobat Exchange product loaded, you can just "print" to .pdf by
choosing Adobe PDFWriter as your printer. It creates the .pdf file in
the location that you specify (it asks).
I've never seen a color change problem when I do it this way. Actually,
I've never had a problem at all when I do it this way.
Hope that helps!
