Thanks for that! The Print driver does the job as you say. There is still one small (but not critical) glitch: I uncheck Save to file, in the hope that it will produce the pdf. Despite that, it insists on producing the ps file. I just double click it and it gets fed to the distiller, which produces the pfd. Is there some way to make thing go straight through to pdf?

Dear Daniel,

When you use *File > Save As* then you use FMs PDF Maker which is built on
old Unix code converted for Windows.

If you have Adobe Acrobat then you can use *File > Print* and print to the
Adobe PDF print driver. I always use the *Print to File* option and change
the filename extension to .ps so that when the print file is generated I
just double-click on it and Distiller converts the .ps file to a PDF.

The Adobe PDF print driver has more options and works much better if you
have a new version of Adobe Acrobat.

Note: Check the colours in the final PDF because they may look different
than the PDF generated with FMs PDF Maker.

I have proven the above with FM 7.x, 8, 9 and 10 on Windows XP, Vista and 7.

Have a nice day.
