"a drawing error occurred"

Jul 13, 2009 5:05 PM

I have been getting the message "a drawing error occurred" in Acrobat 9 Pro for no reason I can think of. Some pdf files are okay, others are not. I have to use Reader 9 to see the files Pro 9 will not open. Anyone with an idea on how to track the error - could it be a corrupt plug-in? Any clue appreciated as I am clue-less.

    Reader 9 has the same rendering engine that Acrobat 9 does. An error for one should cause an error for the other. Can you post a problemsome file?

    Could this be a problem with having both Reader and Pro on the same system(?)

    I have had the same problem.  Have you found an answer.   I solved my problem by

    opening the file in acorbat and reducing the size to be compatible with Acrobat 6 or later and it gave me a message that

    a masking file was omitted and now i do not get the error when i download the file from the server.
