Topic: Color loss in PDFs

First, I am using FrameMaker 6.0, Adobe Acrobat 5.0 and Distiller 5.0. My operating system is Windows 2000.

Two days ago, I was able to Save to PDF in color. Then I had a particularly difficult file to save; I had to remove compression to convert it to PDF. After that, I lost all color in my illustrations. I've since put all my options back to their original settings, but I can't get the color back at all.

My settings are: compatibility Acrobat 4.0, compression (color and grey scale) automatic, medium. Compression for monochrome CCITT Group 4. The only change I made that I kept was to embed all fonts.

My printer is color and has post script drivers installed.

Can anyone help with this? I'm nearing a crucial deadline!
