I have FM8 installed on two computers. The main computer, one which I use daily and which is being updated automatically, and a secondary one which is rarely turned on. In FM8 on the main computer, I now experience a problem which is new, I cannot print to file, and when I print to PDF, large portions of the text, usually after a font change, like from Italics to Roman, disappear from the resulting PDF. This does not occur on the secondary machine which functions as it always did.
I had Acrobat pro 9 on the main computer, and Acrobat Pro 8 on the secondary. Updating to Acrobat X on the main computer, did not change the situation.
Obviously, FM8 on the main computer has been corrupted in some fashion. The software works as it always did, but I simply cannot use it to generate PDFs any more. the question is this:
What could have corrupted the program and how I can repair it?
Any help would be much appreciated.
yes and no. I ran the hotfix (took me whole day to back up the computer first....). The resulting PDF is now OK, Nothing is missing. However, I still cannot print to file. When I check the respective box, I immediately get an error message that says:
Cannot write to specified print file.
I tried different file names, different extensions, with the same result.
What do you think?
