I'm trying to export a high quality PDF for my publisher. It's an Indesign book with 14 chapters. I've exported it many times before for preview. It always hangs on the same page; every time. I've tried changing the illustrations on that page from .ai to .PDF. Same thing.
Funny thing is that when I export the chapter separately, it works fine. What else could it be that is causing this book to quit exporting on the same page every time?
If you are able to export in pieces (as in the chapter exports alone), but not all together, it most likely is a system resources problem. It sometimes works to close ID and reopen, then do the export as the first operation. You can also combine individual PDFs into a single file using Acrobat.
Does this work for background tasks too? I'm not able to export my magazine document because it keeps saying I have a background task
Sure. It's a matter of setting the range you want to export for each piece.
