When I try to print from a book file to a ps file, the ps file has 0 kb, but no error messages. Frame 11. What can I try to fix this.

    What default printer is configured when you do this?


    Is Use System Fonts disabled?

    Why are you manually creating the .ps file? IF SaveAsPDF is not working for FM11, then something is not properly in your installation.


    You need to check the AdobePDF printer properties > Adobe PDF Settings tab:

    1. If you have multiple page sizes, you must specify the maximum page size required in the PDF Setup window. FM will then crop all the other pages as required to give you the multiple page sizes in your PDF.




    If you leave this at the default values, then FM will crop the larger pages down to the size specified.



    2. If you must go the postscript route, then the box should not be checked.
