Went to Distill a postscript file and no longer see Distiller in my Creative Cloud. Any one know why it disappeared?  And how I can create a PDF file from a postscript file without Distiller?

 

Thanks.

Thank you. That's what I was trying to find out. Turns out there was a problem with my version of Acrobat Pro DC. Tech Support helped me uninstall and re-install, and then I had the Distiller app again.

Which operating system do you have?

Have you installed Acrobat Pro?

Running macOS Catalina, v. 10.15.4

I have the subscription service to Acrobat Creative Cloud. That includes Acrobat DC and Acrobat X.

It does not include Acrobat X. But Acrobat Pro includes Distiller, always. Just look for it in the Applications folder. You will not see it in the Creative Cloud Desktop app.

Wow. $599 annual subscription to Creative Cloud -- and no Distiller.  That's sad.

No, that's not even slightly what I said. Your Creative Cloud subscription includes Acrobat Pro DC, and so you get Distiller. It does NOT include Acrobat Pro X, which is many years obsolete, and does not run in Catalina anyway. So you are all set to use Distiller.

Just to clarify, Creative Cloud Desktop App does not show Distiller as a separate app. The Distiller App is included in your Acrobat Pro DC download. 

 

Acrobat X is discontinued.
