i used to have FM 2017 on my win7 PC and printing PDFs just fine, but after i changed my Windows to 10 suddenly is printing PDFs very slow, even when i export PS file also it take too much time, besides the FrameMaker is like (not responding) till the PDF exported.
Is your FM2017 up to date? Have you compared - printing directly to the Adobe PDF printer instance? - Save As PDF? - Print to .ps file and Distill outside of FM to see if any one of those methods is faster?
