    Trouble pdf form in Pagemaker 6.5


      Win XP SP2 PageMaker 6.5 after installing Visual Manufacturing can no longer pdf from Pagemaker.  I have uninstalled and reinstalled already.  Any suggestions?

          I reckon you're going to waste hours trying to find what's causing it,so here's 5 options:


          1. Install a PS Printer driver printing to the port FILE:  Print your PM publication to this port and use Distiller to create the PDF from resutling outputted *.PS file.  (Any hyperlinks in your publication wil be lost.)


          2. Uninstall Visual Manufacturing. (Did you create a restore before installing it?)


          3. PM6.5 isn't supported on WinXP.  Install PM6.5 on Win2K or Win98SE.  See here: http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/328/328682.html


          4. Use your PM Licence number to move to InDesign while the generous discounts are still available. This is the best long term option


          5. Spend £100 or so upgrading to PM7 (with no guarantees that the clash with Visual Manufacturing is resolved).
