I was looking for answers concerning several problems arising wih my documents on Indesign CS5, so if it happen your indesign cannot generate PDF , do check for importing elements on your artwork whether you are working with EPS,becuse the main source come from here.
Hope this will help you.
I have spent couple of nights with this tedious problem. After hard research I solved it! I know this may be quite complex issue (in fact I am not sure about that anymore) and vary between different operating systems but I got it work. My set up is win 7 64bit and I am using Indesign 5.5.
My problem was in sertain pages and as I removed these 3 pages exporting worked like charm. The problem wasn't so mysterious after all. Luckily my document is only 24 page so it wasn't so hard case to find these buggy pages. Page number 6, 13 and 14 was "infected" somehow.
Hope this helps!
Ps. using range in export settings help when you try to rake up the pages with issues.
What's cousing the issues in thes pages is another guestion. Can't answer on that, yet!
Thanks for your response. Actually I'm attaching a file that shows how I
solved the problem, just in case this may come in handy for you. Your
problem was not the same as mine. I used it and haven't had a problem since.
