I am printing to a post script printer driver to get a prn, then distilling to create a well compacted pdf. I do this alot - and recently i needed to create a black n white pdf from a color file - I managed to figure out how to do that, but now I cant figure out what I did - and turn it off!
When I print directly to: Acrobat PDF it comes out in color but the file size is too large. But when I select postscript driver for the printer - it always comes out in blacknwhite. I know it must be a postscript printer driver setting or a distiller setting but I cant figure out where and I looked at everything i thought!

What setting do I need to change?
