InDesign CS5.5 PDFs cause Indesign 2.0 on OS9 to quite when importing

InDesign CS5.5 PDFs cause Indesign 2.0 on OS9 to quite when importing. Is there a fix for this?

I'm trying to trouble shoot a client issue and telling them to upgrade is not an option.

    How are you creating the PDFs?

    Try the press quality setting. It should work.

     

     

     

    And suggesting that they upgrade is certainly option you should present them with. If they don’t want to, that’s another issue all together.

     

     

     

    ID 2.0 is more than 10 years old.

    We tend to look for answers, but without knowing what Adobe changed over the years, there's little chance of a fix for some issues.

    My post from yesterday - a simple pdf from Illy doesn't render correctly in CS2.

    I think there is an underlying message in both issues: You can't fall too far behind in technology, or the pain will increase incrementally over time. You can't expect that the ongoing technology will be backward compatible forever.

    That cannot be argued Steve - but I think the OP and I expect some stability in an Adobe created pdf going into another Adobe program.

     

    There's no edits attempted, merely proper rendering of what is now considered the defacto file format for reliable exchange.

    I have installed, along with Soxy, versions 4, 5, 6 & 7.5 to best manage my very small environment.

    If you're back in OS 9, you have no tech support. Almost no one else is still running the operating system. It could be the PDF, it could be the OS, it could be an InDesign 2 bug. There's no way to tell.

    I agree to a point…but InDesign 2.0 is, as I already pointed out 10 years old.

     

     

     

    Would you express the same feelings about placing that PDF into Pagemaker?

    If I had a client who was still using Pagemaker, I'd tell them that I could not help them. I cannot run Pagemaker on my system, and have no way of helping them diagnose a problem. There may be others who are equipped to help them, but happily I am not.

     

    I don't think I'd like time travel. ;-)

    I think I'd best hold my tongue or I'll get myself in trouble. ;-)

    That’s the difference between us, I guess. I have very little trouble calling a spade a spade.

     

     

     

    But that’s my job as the resident curmudgeon.
