I am trying to print to an adobe pdf file and keep getting this error:
%%[ ProductName: Distiller ]%%
%%[ Error: ioerror; OffendingCommand: readstring ]%%
(› PoÈsKÖn µÐY5Âê2¢ ÷Fmø-êíöYJ
%%[ Flushing: rest of job (to end-of-file) will be ignored ]%%
%%[ Warning: PostScript error. No PDF file produced. ] %%
It won't let me print. Please help if you have any idea what this means?
Printing to Distiller is not the recommended workflow to create a PDF from InDesign. What happens when you choose File > Export > PDF (Print)?
It won't open in Adobe Acrobat it says could not open because it is either not a supported file type or because the file has been damaged.
This is the pdf created with File > Export? What OS? What version of indesign? What version of acrobat? And how long is the file?
Yes, this was the pdf created then exported. The operating system is Windows 10. version of in design in cc2017. adobe acrobat DC. The file is 56 pages.
InDesign successfully exports a PDF and that's what happens when you try to open it? Are you allowing the file to fully export before trying to open it?
Yes, I've allowed to fully export it before opening it. I tried even leaving my computer on for a couple hours and then tried opening the file since your sent this post. Any other suggestions?
Export is the way to go. But you say that you "created then exported" the PDF. What do you mean by that, and what are your export settings?

Be sure that InDesign has finished creating the PDF file, sometimes it's long.
This worked! Thank you!

Here's another idea—it looks like it's giving up on page 9 or 10. You might try creating a PDF from the front of the book (say 1–8) and then the back of the book, say (10–end) and then try to isolate which page is causing the issue. You could recreate that one page.
