Since I've migrated to Lion (Mac OS 10.7.4) I receive the Automator-error message:
"An error occurred while saving the PDF file."
I've started from a complete empty disk and installed Lion.
I've installed my Acrobat 9 Pro from dvd. Step by step I've updated to 9.5.1.
I've installed and updated all programs (and fonts) from dvd or company-site.
I have tried to save as Adobe PDF in all installed programs (Office, Mail, Safari, VectorWorks, NisusWriter, …): same error.
I've repaired permissions, I've changed read/write permissions, … Nothing helps.
Save as PDF (non acrobat) works without any problem.
I prefer to use Acrobat to generate the pdf's.
In the past I used Acrobat 9 Pro as a printer (10.5) and via save as Adobe PDF (10.6) without any problem.
Mac user since 1990.
Indeed, Michael: that's the way I did it all the time with success using Snow Leopard + Adobe Pro 9 (print dialog, PDF-button left under, save as Adobe pdf).
Under Lion, this same procedure gives me the errormessage.
I can't do anything with the answer "AN error occurred". I expect good software telling me the details of / solutions to the error.
I started all over again. I did exactly the same thing:
I erased my hard disk. I installed Lion (again). I installed Acrobat (again). I did all the 19 updates, one by one (again).
Now it works. Ouf.
