    Printing Error: The Adobe Print Engine has failed to output your data due to an unknown problem

    Kath-H Community Member
      I've seen this before when placing some of the blizzard of pdfs of all kinds that land in my inbox into Indesign. I can't remember if I ever solved it, but one work-around has been to place the pdf, then export as pdf, place that into a new document.

      It's not working this time though. The pdf in question was created in Indesign CS2 (4.0.5) in Windows, the Windows fonts are all embedded, I'm using CS2 Mac. Everything else prints fine to a variety of output devices.

      Can anyone shed any light, is there more information I can provide?

      It prints from Acrobat, which is what I'm doing, but not when placed into ID.

      Thanks in advance.
