Every so often a document refuses to print. I am on Mac High Sierra. InDesign CC. All have latest updates as of July 2018.

I have tried trashing the preferences; restarting the program; clearing missing fonts and font conflicts. I'm almost positive this is a document-level issue since other documents will print. Since it appears to have stopped during "Downloading image" could this be a link issue? Any insights are appreciated. The last person to post about this issue a few years ago didn't bother to post the resolution.

Hi, Jodie and others getting this error message,I got this error message with a 32 page InDesign document, for which I was attempting to print the first two pages. I quickly discovered that other pages would print without giving the error message. I narrowed it down to page 1 as having the problem. As the page was made up of various text frames, I made a fresh page, and then started moving text frames over to the new page one by one, attempting to print the page after each new element was added....

Hi Jodie,

We are sorry that you ran into this issue. As you mentioned above that other documents are printing fine, this looks like a file specific issue. Would you mind sharing your file? If not, please upload it to Creative Cloud/ Google Drive/ Dropbox and share direct download link.

Regards,

Srishti

Hi, Jodie and others getting this error message,

I got this error message with a 32 page InDesign document, for which I was attempting to print the first two pages. I quickly discovered that other pages would print without giving the error message. I narrowed it down to page 1 as having the problem. As the page was made up of various text frames, I made a fresh page, and then started moving text frames over to the new page one by one, attempting to print the page after each new element was added. In this way I was able to narrow the problem to one particular text frame. Although InDesign was not indicating a font problem in Preflight, changing the font in that one text frame solved the problem.

I hope this will help the next person who encounters Printing Error: ^1

Uwe,

I'm using InDesign CC 14.0.1 on an iMac with OS Mojave, version 10.14.5.

The problem font, in this case, was BlacklightD Regular, version 001.005.

Any number of other fonts would have solved the problem, but I replaced the bad font with Comic Sans MS Regular, version 5.00x.

Happy publishing,

Roderick

OK after preflighting, find font etc. etc. I also had a large document, I sent small batches to the printer and when the error popped up I isolated the font until the document printed with a new printable font then deleted those problem childs from my font book. This error was driving us CRAZY!!!

I have this same problem as Jodie.  Just purchased Creative Suite at end of 2020. Any file with the Caslon540SwaD font will not print and I get Printer Error: ^1. If I change the font, it will print but I need this particular font to print.
