Topic: Help! RGB instead of CMYK
Conf: (P-PDF) Mac Issues, Msg: 116318

Hi, I saw someone post with the same problem but I don't think they ever got the definitive answer on this problem. For some reason, when I create a 4-color PageMaker 6.5 CMYK job and create a pdf using Distiller 5, the .pdf is RGB.
I am an ad agency and send newspaper and magazine ads to various printhouses. I KNOW all the files are CMYK. I've pre-flghted, double-checked and done everything else. I've tried almost every possible combination of Job Options. Any suggestions/ideas? I'm using Mac OS 9.2. I create a document, go to FILE -> Print, select Adobe Distiller PPD, Save as a PS file. Then open Distiller and create the pdf. This is driving me crazy. Any help is appreciated.
