Hi Karenk,

Edited Response:-

Could you confirm, how exactly you are trying the conversion? Is it online or through the desktop application? To access the service you may follow the steps suggested below-

1- Export PDF is an online service that you can use online via: https://cloud.acrobat.com/exportpdf  you can also check with a different web browser.

2- You can also use the services through free desktop version of Adobe Acrobat  Reader DC: Adobe Acrobat Reader DC Install for all versions

3- “Sign In” using the email (Adobe ID) under which you have subscription registered.

4- For detailed description of how to use the Export PDF service, you may refer to- Using Adobe Export PDF

You may refer to the following link for any troubleshooting: Troubleshooting Create PDF, Export PDF, Adobe Send, Fill & Sign … services(PDFPack or Document Cloud...

If you still continue to receive the "Conversion Failure" error message, then you may refer to similar discussion here Re: Conversion Failure and follow the trouble shooting steps suggested.

Let us know if it still doesn't work.

Regards,

Akanchha

Hello,

I have tried all of the steps you gave me in the email and the file is still failing as a conversion failure.

It is a large file. Would that be the reason why it won't convert?

Thanks,

Karen King
