Please help me with this error i continue to get while attempting to save my work in Illustrator CS3

"Acrobat PDF Format is having difficulties. The dimension of this page are out of range"

The original artwork was massive so i figured it could have been because of the size. I scaled the artwork down by 70% but got the same message. I then created a new document which was A3 in size, I copied the artwork over to the new A3 doc in a single layer but the error still continues.

I have never seen this kind of error before and i cannot work out how to solve the issue - I need to save this work!

Please help

Hey guys - I never had an issue doing billboard layouts, but just found this thread after searching this error while trying to create a PDF of a 3-page letter sized (8.5" x 11") document. The problem was a tiny dot of a page created in error at some point - I could barely see it without zooming in. Rather than too large, the page in the document was too small. If anyone finds this in the future, take a look - your problem may be solved as easily as finding and deleting an erroneous page in your spread.

(For the record, this is Illustrator CC 22.0.1 on a Mac Pro 3.5GHz 6-core cylinder running Mac OS High Sierra 10.13.3)

Corey,

Are you sure there is no outlying artwork (or something else, more likely)? A Ctrl+A would reveal it.

Check if there is a selection with the crop tool (Shift-O Tool). Probably the whole area is selected, which causes the error. Select page should solve the problem.

Hi,

I have a similar problem with a page with 5400 mm width. I have no Crop Selection on the page.
Every time I try to save as a PDF an error message pops up: "Acrobat PDF file Format is having difficulties. The dimensions of this page are out-of-range."

I tryed to reduce the page dimensions until it worul let me save as a PDF file.
With a 5050 mm widht the PDF could be saved. So I must conclude the PDF must have a widht (and hight) limit to be able to export.

My "solution" was to reduce the size to 50%, save the PDF and inform the printer of this reduction.

Maximum of 5050mm was the key.

Thank you, Pedro, this was the perfect solution. It would have helped if Adobe just said documents greater than 5050mm won't save to PDF, then I would have known instead of wasting hours looking for a solution.
