Sandy Brown asks about having a specific graphic reference cause a GPF.....
Sorry.. that's a new one on me.
1. If it is a specific graphic (or doc) try embedding rather than referencing
2. If you can, try reducing the resolution of the graphic. (e.g.: if you are
printing at only 300dpi, or 4x5", there is no sense in having a 600dpi or
8x10 graphic source.)
3. If it is only a portion of an entire graphic, go out to photshop (or
whatever), and crop so that only the portion you need is in the graphic file.
