thanks for your reply.
Failed to Export the PDF file is the error message I get in the background tasks window. Never had to use this window before.
Do you have any other suggestions?
There can be quite a few reasons why the export fails. Do you have write permission on the folder where you are trying to save? The link I gave above has a lot of troubleshooting tips.
Thanks everyone for your help!
It could be a permissions problem. I just moved everything over to a new larger hard drive. Is it possible I need to do a clean re-install?
Or maybe a preferences thing?
It is a very small document a postcard with 2 pages, I took out the images and it still gets stuck.
It immediately displays a small yellow symbol next to the progress bar at top. I deleted all the text and it now creates a pdf. Must be a font issue!
Though it was not detected.
Oh wow. It was a font issue. There was a missing font form the original copy. Also, I deleted all the unused color swatches and now it works.
A few were WORD color swatches. It was a housekeeping issue...hopefully.
