I was recently told that best practices are to not print directly from VW.


I have started publishing to PDF and then printing from acrobat.


Now I seem to be getting this error in acrobat:

"An error exists on this page. Acrobat may not display the page correctly.

Please contact the person who created the PDF document to correct the problem."



Any thoughts?


Files are printing fine from acrobat and appear fine too.

I'm willing to just ignore the error...

I asked around, and some have seen similar alerts if the file is exported from VW with a crazy scale and a zoomed out to ~5% zoom or less.

Hmm, these are 1/4"=1'-0" or 1/2"=1'-0" scale.

I do zoom out to 100% to look them over before printing, but never so small as 5%


They are mostly plans and detail elevations with small hidden line renders - maybe the renders are the culprit?

I've noticed the error message only shows after I hit print in Acrobat, not just when opening it.


Like I said , they print fine, so no issue - just a heads up.
