Text settings to display in table in PDF

I'm struggling with some tables. I've got a question out regarding missing text in a table when saving to PDF.

FM version 13.0.3.495

After some troubleshooting, I've discovered some types of paragraph tags/styles just plain don't show up in a table cell when the .fm is converted to PDF, even though the tag specifies CellBody or CellHeading.

I can't find anything significantly different between the tag I know shows up and the ones that do not. Same font family, same size, same angle/weight/color/stretch/pair kern, etc. Why one tag shows and a whole lot of others don't is a frustrating mystery.

Another oddity: Acrobat Reader can find the "invisible" text, because I can choose it and apply strikethrough. A strikethrough line appears where the text should be, but no text is visible.

What setting should I look for to make sure the paragraph tag actually displays in a cell when the .fm is saved as a PDF?

Try toggling the RGB/CMYK options when creating the PDF from FM. These use different postscript headers/instructions and have messed up some fonts and other things in the past.

Also, check that any non-shaded table cells use a fill of None instead of White (it's possible that the fill is being laid down on top of the text).
