    Can you export a PDF and print that?

    What can't you do? Export or print the PDF?

     

    Is this with one file or all files?

    Bob means is the problem isolated to this one file, or does it happen with any file you try? It's sounding like there's something corrupt in the file though.

     

    Try exporting the file to PDF in two pices by selecting page ranges in the export dialog. If one half fails, try dividing that in half and eport as two pieces, and so on until you isolate a page, then you can look at the objects on the page.

    Preflight looks different sorts of errors -- colors you don't want to allow or overset text, for example -- rather than damage or possibly bad technique that ought to output under normal circumstances.

     

    I'm glad you were able to find and fix your problems. It would be very helpful to others who read this thread in the future if you could tell us waht sorts of things you found. That might also give us an opportunity to help you find a way to avoid the smae issues in the future.
