When attempting to export the PDF file on Windows 10 22H2 using InDesign, I encounter the following error: "Failed to Export the PDF file.Possible cause of failure is present on spread with page number "1"."

I've found solutions to this issue on forums, but they were all for Mac users. I'm seeking guidance on how to resolve this on Windows.

It's telling you where the problem is. Try exporting the rest of the file without that page.

You have to "divide and conquer" in order to find the culprit.

 

Go to the first page - delete rest of the pages.

Then delete top/bottom half

Go to the first page - delete rest of the pages.

Then delete top/bottom half - or left/right - of this page and export.

If you don't have an error - then the problem is in the half that you've deleted.

You have to keep deleting in half till you get to the last element.
