I tried your suggestion (made a shortcut to the Pagemaker help file) and...voila! It works!
Muchas gracias, mi amigo.
John Davies - you're the man!
On xp Windows PM 7 I have produced a 60-page chapter for an illustrated book. The diagrams comprise a paper filled line rectangle, with a black filled rectangle behind it. The black rectangle is nudged to the right and to the bottom, to create a black drop shadow. I placed the eps diagram over it, to the front layer.
I need to produce pdf file. So, I generated a postscript file; then used Adobe 9 distiller to produce a pdf.
Everything is perfect up to page 28. After this page, all of the diagrams show the black rectangle through the paper-filled ones.
I have double-checked PageMaker diagrams, and even tried to generate just one of the rogue pages but it still shows the black rectangle in Adobe Reader. All text and fonts are perfect.
Please, any help appreciated! Thanks
Do you think that spamming every topic on this forum is going to get you
any more help?
Hey, that question is a little unfair and quite untruthful Bob. I'm certainly NOT a spammer. Me thinks an apology from you is in order.
I made a simple mistake because I thought I posted my first question in the wrong category topic. Hence the repeat in another topic; I'm astonished that you thought my error warranted that kind of remark!
Anyway, thank you for your help. The paper fill setting to overprint may well have solved the problem. Thank you.
I would suggest to try a new user account which may solve the issue and you will be able to get the help files.
The link above doesn't work because it referred to the previous WebX version of Adobe Forums, and I guess that at the time of writing the old forum was still active.The old FAQs are here: http://www.bigjohnd.org.uk/PM_FAQs/PM_FAQs.zip (Note the dates!)The FAQ about the Help Files is FAQ 9.15.
