MX Still Mangling Text - Macromedia Freehand

I brought this up some time ago but still haven't heard anything about a fix. I have an MX file (11.0.1) on my G5 (Panther), it contains text fields that will need to translated later into several different languages.

    Default MX Still Mangling Text

    I brought this up some time ago but still haven't heard anything about a fix.
    I have an MX file (11.0.1) on my G5 (Panther), it contains text fields that
    will need to translated later into several different languages. This job is
    being printed on mylar so registration is crucial from one layer (containing a
    white underprint) to the next (containing white text with the black pinline
    effect).
    The problem is; MX sporadically dinks with the kerning from one layer to the
    next, and the result isn't always the same. Example: We print the file here, it
    looks fine. We send it to the printer, it comes back with the white underprint
    kerned differently from the text. It comes back to us, we try to find the
    problem but we can't. We double check all our settings then send it off again.
    It comes back again, still ed up but in a different part of the text.
    It s up random lines of text (typically, it's only one line at a time)
    and it's really destroying any hope we have of using FH in future jobs.
    We're considering dropping it since we can't rely on it to perform
    consistantly.

    Anyone else have this problem and perhaps found a fix/workaround?

    Work around: I would convert text to paths / outliens before sending Freehand file to your printer.

    Kind regards
