context

FM 12.04.455 and Acrobat X 10.1.4 – untouched by human hand (or even corporate IT) for at least a year

a .book referencing 10 .fm files and generating a ToC and a LoF

problem

Trying to generate a .pdf (Save as …) is failing, completely and uninformatively. A busy cursor in FM for a while, which then goes away; no sign of life from Distiller, no log file … Not just a network glitch, because this has now happened consistently, several times and across two working days

extra info

All the files in the .book can be saved to .pdf individually

Other .book files can be saved to .pdf

question

any ideas what's wrong?

any tips on how to remedy the situation?

thanks in advance!

How's the Print to PDF working? I suspect it's got to be some component of the book that's giving you trouble - does a new book consisting of 1 file at a time work?

FieryPantone, This does not address the question, but if you are still in this situation when your deadline approaches, remember that you can use File > Create > Combine Files into a Single PDF in Acrobat.
