    Print to Pdf Help?

    Hi, I am new to this forum and was wondering if anyone can help?

    I have been trying to print drawings to PDF using Adobe PDF, all has went well with the drawings with the exception of a few where they have not printed to pdf and somehow ended up producing a text document?

    Has anyone come across this before and is there a quick fix that I may be missing?

    Many Thanks

    I have seen that before. Is the txt file a file with just a few lines of text?
    I think when I had that is was a problem with memory and the spooler of the PDF printer was not able to hold all the data.

    Did you try any other PDF printer yet?

    Hi Robin,

    Yes, the txt file is a few lines of text.

    Unfortunately the only other PDF printer installed on my system is 'Microsoft Print to PDF' but is not giving me an option for an A1 print and our systems Administrator is on leave currently.

    Just to check, can you turn off some stuff on the sheets that give you issues, turn off annotations for example and see if it prints OK then?

    And can you post the bit of text in that txt, it might tell you what the problem is.

    I have turned off annotations and still the same problem.

    The text is as follows:

    %%[ ProductName: Distiller ]%%
    Calibri not found, using Courier.
    %%[ Error: invalidfont; OffendingCommand: xshow ]%%
    Stack:
    [108 107 83 107 108 82 108 0]
    ( 
    )

    %%[ Flushing: rest of job (to end-of-file) will be ignored ]%%
    %%[ Warning: PostScript error. No PDF file produced. ] %%

    I recommend you use PDF Creator, it’s free and it’s very simple to use

    Sorry for the late reply. What I can find on the web is this:

    ====

    This error can be resolved by changing one of the Adobe PDF printer settings.

    When you are in the print dialog, and you have selected the appropriate PDF printer, select "Properties."
    In the dialog box, there should be a tab titled "Adobe PDF Settings,"

    Un-check "Rely on system fonts only; do not use document fonts."

    Click OK,then quit & relaunch the application.
