    Freehand's PDF export is rather limited:

    The best way to produce PDFs is using Distiller, part of the full Adobe
    Acrobat package. If you're using OS X, the printer driver can also be
    use to produce PDFs, but I wouldn't trust it to make PDFs for
    professional offset printing.

    What kind of colors are you trying to preserve? What are your FH color
    management settings?

    If you're trying to preserve intense RGB colors in the PDF file, I've found
    one method. Make sure all of the colors in your FH doent are defined as
    RGB/Process. (Use Xtras/Name all colors and check you color list to make
    sure.) All raster images should be RGB mode.

    Export to EPS, choosing RGB in options. You could use the Photoshop 4/5 RGB
    export format. Distill the EPS with the Standard setting.

    I don't know if this will preserve the colors in your placed EPS files. I
    guess it would depend on them being exported as RGB only.
