As with new Adobe Update 4, I am able to generate PDF file.
However, in Header I am getting characters as Â . And in Footer, I am getting page number as 25/223, even though I had never defined page numbers in any Master Page.
I have just seen the page number issue and will be taking that up with Adobe. No solution I can offer at the moment. I have page numbers defined and am seeing the ones you see plus mine in the wrong place.
As to the wrong characters, try the sample projects and see if you get them there. If not, then are the characters replacing something else or are they additional. Perhaps you could add a screenshot?
