Correct. Placing the PDF creates an EPS (encapsulated postscript)
graphic in PageMaker. Non-postscript printers print only the preview.
A workaround is to hold down the shift key as you place the PDF. This
will bring up the filter options, where you can set the preview option
to a much higher DPI for the preview. If you select say 300, you'll
get a huge file (the filter window will tell you how big), but it
should then print well (but slowly) to your printer.
However, don't send the printer the version with the huge preview.
