Can you create PDFs in other applications? Do you have an AdobePDF printer instance? Does Save to PDF work in FM?

I was able to plot to a pdf and paper for individual chapters by right clicking on the book location and use "Print Selected Files" with  all files open. But I cannot plot by using the "Print Book" for pdf or paper.

Try to open all files in the book first (Shift + File > Open from book file). If there are any issues with ANY of the files (e.g. missing fonts, broken cross-refs, colour/numbering/paging inconsistencies) the book print/PDF job will always fail.

Framemaker Error.jpg

I always open the book first and open my files from there. This is the error I get when I try to print the whole book at one time. It only happens if I go from pdf to paper printing. I hit OK and print button and nothing happens. I do not get this error when I try to print just a section or one sheet.

You get the font warning message because your default printer in FM isn't the Adobe PDF; it's some physical printer that may or may not support the fonts you've used in your documents. If you set your default printer to Adobe PDF within FM (use the free SetPrint plug in to make this happen each time you're in FM) you won't get a font warning. What happens when you open all the docs in the book? Any warning messages? You're not showing all docs in the book open in this screenshot.

That happens when FM has to change printers and the listed "internal" fonts for the new printer are different than the one that it is switching from. You're changing from the Adobe PDF instance to your physical system printer. It's just a cautionary window. Change to the desired physical printer BEFORE you open any files.

[Edit Addendum: I see that you're printing to a network printer. FM sometimes has issues on some networks. Try setting FM to print to a local file as a test. The alternative is to create a PDF using the SaveAsPDF route and then print from Acrobat.]

Also, please check to see that you are fully patched up for your FM2015 version. There have been three patches released to date. Either use the Help > Updates... or go directly to the Updates page at: Adobe - FrameMaker : For Windows
