PDF creation stalls on the same page in a large book file. File is over 500 pages and has a lot of graphics. Tried everything. Deleted all content on that page. Deleted the page itself. Deleted just the graphic. Nothing seems to work. It works on my co-workers computer. It has worked previously on this same file with no problems. using Frame 2017.

Thanks for any help!

All patched up? Are you both running the same point version? What method are you using to create the PDF? Save As/Print to AdobePDF?

We are both using Print Book, then Adobe PDF as the printer. I am checking on the version.

Have you tried the "divide and conquer" method to isolate the problem? It could be being caused by a graphic on an earlier or later page than the one it's failing on. Basically, print half the book at a time and see which half causes the issue. Then print half of that half at a time and see which half causes the issue. Repeat ad naseum until you get it down to a few pages and then troubleshoot from there.

 

When I've had this issue, it's usually because a graphic got corrupted somehow. Usually recreating the graphic in its source program and reimporting or reembedding fixes the issue.

 

Other things to try:

  1. MIF wash. Adobe has a sample script called BookMifWash that will save all files in a book to MIF, then open the MIF file and resave it over the FM file. Gets rid of lots of issues.
  2. Are your graphics embedded or imported by reference? It can sometimes be an issue if most or all are embedded depending on your hardware configuration.

Oh, and by recreating, I don't mean redrawing. Normally all that's necessary is to re-export it from the source format to whatever format you're using in your document.
