Hello. I have a PDF generated in Framemaker (version 188.8.131.521) that won't take a watermark in Acrobat Pro (version 2023.006.20360.) FrameMaker indicates that the PDF was created successfully and the resulting PDF opens normally. However, when I start the watermark procedure in Acrobat, the little watermark bar graph at the botton right of the screen comes up, says it's scanning for watermarks, and then the process stops without further ado. Sometimes if I start over and regenerate the PDF the watermark procedure works fine, but not always.
Does this sound like an Acrobat problem or a FrameMaker problem? Any suggestions or solutions?
Thanks in advance!

UPDATE: Rather than using FrameMakers Save As PDF routine, I printed the book to a .ps file and then ran it through Distiller. The watermarking worked each time I tried doing it using this scenario. This leads me to believe that the problem lies with FrameMaker.
