I keep getting a file damaged error when I try to print to cute pdf. Also have vertical purple lines I cannot get rid of
Try to save as IDML
File Crashing on Output - printing/PDF/other
Why not export the indd file as a print pdf instead of printing to cute PDF
No need to use Cute PDF at all.
You can use File>Export and select PDF (Print).
The purple lines are the margins set on the page - make sure the highlighted options are turned off
