    Converting InDesign files to pdf via Distiller


      I'm a freelance illustrator and one of my clients' publishers is requiring that I use Distiller to convert an InDesign file (a book cover) to pdf. The publisher provided the InDesign template file for the cover.


      When putting the ID file through Distiller, I get the error message below. Does anyone know a way around this?


      Any help is appreciated. Thank you!
