FrameMaker 5.5 PostScript to PDF Using Acrobat Distiller
Subject:FrameMaker 5.5 PostScript to PDF Using Acrobat Distiller From:michael moore <mayhawk -at- HOTMAIL -dot- COM> Date:Thu, 21 May 1998 11:25:43 PDT
Good day Techwhirlers,
This is my first post after lurking for about nine months. I am looking
for a solution to a problem that is plaguing my system. Here is the
I composed a couple of documents in FrameMaker 5.5 and attempted to
Distill them to PDF using Acrobat Distiller 3.01. I had successfully
distilled several documents prior to the documents that began giving me
the problems I am presently experiencing -- but now, I am getting this
error message from Distiller:
%%[Error: undefined; OffendingCommand: FmPA]%%.
This is Sanskrit to me.
I can distill documents produced on somebody else's copy of FrameMaker,
but I cannot distill my own documents. It must be some setting that I
have somehow lost-- but I don't know how I lost this setting. I haven't
changed any settings that should have set this off.
I get random messages telling me that my font information has changed.
Are these two items related? I need to make four more PDFs within the
next couple of days, and I really need some sort of solution to this
problem. Does anyone have a few answers for this problem?
