    What happens when you try on the Mac? Are you double-clicking the file?
    Importing it into a Freehand file? Opening it from inside Freehand?

    It might be a PDF version issue. I have had luck by opening PDFs in
    Acrobat, saving them as an EPS and then re-distilling these to PDF 1.3
    compatible files.

    I have tried this with many different Distiller settings and have so far
    had no luck creating a PDF that FHMX can read. If anyone on a Mac has been
    able to do this, please let me know the Distiller settings you used.

    Sorry, I can't comment on FHMX as I'm using FH8 but I use the "Screen"
    preset that is installed by default. It's the only way FH will preserve
    colours for me.

    I use Illustrator 10 to open PDFs as an editable file (almost always works), save as an AI file and then open the AI in Freehand MX
