Thanks for the rescue :-)

I managed to set everything up as it should be but how do I get KPrinter (or 
perhaps another printing app) to print transparencies? Part of the document 
contains a photo of a wedding ring (it's actually a png) - naturally on a 
transparent background - but when I printed the pdf the wedding ring has a black 
square behind it :-(

Any ideas? Perhaps I should post this as a separate thread.
