is that the resulting PDF you get after exporting the DWG to PDF or should I use this to reference it into one of my drawings and to output it as new PDF? If second then the problem of "your grey text" is that the source text (upper left text) already is grey.

I appreciate your trying to help, but after a question like that I don't think there's any point in our continuing with this discussion. Anyone else out there with any insight into this?
My earlier solution that worked for me once, failed to work several weeks later. I dont' always have the grayed out problem, but when it occurs, I save the PDF as a PNG (or other image format) and insert it as an image.
It is not a solution to the problem, but a way to avoid the problem until an easier solution arises.
Yes natureforms, doing it as an image is sure to work and I may have to go that way. It's just that it's about a thousand times more time efficient to reference PDFs because you can reference all of its pages at a time, rather than referencing 20 JPG's individually. I just feel like there is a missing link here, if you'll pardon the pun. PDFs are ubiquitous nowadays and I feel like people are successfully using them. Thanks for your input.
I have run into this problem again. This time the PDFADJUST didn't work for me. I messed around with a few plot settings and discovered that when I turn off "Plot Transparency" in the plot dialog box, the PDF's print normal. I hope that helps any of you with that problem.
That is great information usu2002, thanks! That worked for me as long as I went through the print dialog. Printing to PDF seems to be working now--although it is still very slow, at least it does not crash or hang.
Next question, does anyone know how to get the PDF export routine (which is used by the Publish function and is about twenty times faster than printing to PDF) to ignore the transparency setting? Thanks everyone for your contributions.
I've also confirmed that plotting with transparency on creates a faded back pdf underlay. Unfortenatly when both are existing in a set and I am plotting the whole set through the SSM this creates a serious issue. Is there any new insight into this issue?
