Hi all

I've searched the archives, but to no avail.

Could someone please let me know what's happening here, or perhaps
recommend another mailing list or other resource, which might be more

I have created some PDFs in Adobe Distiller 4, which needed to be
compatible with Readers 3 & 4, so I checked the "compatible with Reader 3"
checkbox in Distiller. To create the PDF, I opened the original document
in Word 97 and clicked the Make PDF button which links to Distiller.

The document is created without problems, but there's something wrong. The
document appears ok in Reader 4, but in Reader 3, the document opens, and
the following error message appears:

Invalid ColorSpace

and then:

This file contains information not understood by the viewer.

The text in the PDF file appears fine, but the coloured graphics either
don't appear, or are black.

Is this a bug in Distiller, or did I do something wrong?
