Unable to crate pdf in 11.5

Recommended Posts

I have Adobe acrobat 6, and I use it often to create pdf's of drawings so clients can open them.

Today I tried creating my first pdf since "upgrading", and I use the term loosely.

Now when I create a pdf I get one giant blank page, or I get notepad opening with error messages.

Now don't tell me this is adobe problem becasue it worked just fine in 11.

Does anybody else have this problem?

I didn't have your problem, but when I upgraded I found I no longer had the "Print Current View" option in the print screen. I stumbled on the fact that I first had to go into Page Setup, reset it and then back to Print and it was there. Hopefully yours can be fixed similarily.

I have printed pdfs in 11.5 and sorry to say have had no quirks.

I make it a permenant habit of reducing the print quality from 12oo dpi to 300 dpi. This has always helped in the past. Maybe it will help you?

I deleted Adobe Acrobat, and installed CUTEpdf.

It works fine.

But that doesn't explain what happened.

Other people in my office are having trouble makein pdfs with 11.5.

No Michael, not the answer and not better than using pdf's.

I rarely, if ever create jpegs, bitmaps or eps images of my files/designs these days. Pdf's have been the way to go for several years now for the obvious advantages they have.
