if the tiff link is in cmyk, and you export the freehand file to pdf and convert the colors to rgb in settings, will the color profile change? thanks!

I don't think it will. Any colours used in Freehand on native shapes, text etc. will be converted to RGB but the Tiff will remain CMYK. At least it has when I've tried it before. I don't think exporting works for Spot colours either, but I might be wrong with that one.

I am not totally sure that there is any conversion taking place in FreeHand as all PDF are exported in both RGB + CMYK formats (at least that is how I remember a distant manual overcoming that concern). Also when exporting SPOT colours it should show show up in EPS exports (as I find PDf sometimes defaults to CMYK (at least in my version of Quark Xpress). There will always be a colour shift in any SPOT to RGB to CMYK so i try to avoid that.
