Filemaker-created PDFs get Postscript error when printing with OS X Preview

Post

We are using Mac OS X 10.8.5 and Filemaker 12.04.

Any PDFs created with Filemaker Pro 12.04 on 10.8.5 get Postscript errors when printing with Preview to Ricoh and Konica Minolta copy machines, but can print fine with Acrobat to the same copy machines. They print fine even with Preview on smaller laser and inkjet printers.

Also, printing the same PDFs on a 10.7.4 computer prints fine with Preview on the same copy machines that got an error in 10.8.5, so I'm thinking it has something to do with how 10.8.5's Preview is reading something in the Filemaker-created PDF. Maybe Preview is more strict than Acrobat in how it reads the Postscript data in the PDF?

Anyone else experiencing this?
