TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I have checked the archives, but I can't find what I am looking for. A little background, in case it has something to do with my problem: I had a 300 page manual in XML format. I was using Arbortext's Epic (not sure if anyone is using it here ? I have been off the list for a bit). I used a mapper file to convert to Word. Now, after a lot of tweaking, I need to go from Word to PDF.
I have never had the need to go to PDF from MS Word before, so maybe I am missing something. When I print to distiller, I get the following error message: "The following error occurred while printing: There is insufficient memory or disk space. Word cannot display the requested format." So, I clicked OK and thought printing had stopped. But it did not. With the 311 page manual, it printed 307 pages to PDF. With the 5 page test doc, it printed the whole thing, but it changed all of my fonts to Courier. Anyone seen this before? Am I forgetting to check settings or something? The manual also has many screenshots.
Thanks in advance,
