Hi

I'm trying to create a pdf file from a Publisher 2000 document.  I'm using PDF Redirect Pro (registered) and XP Pro SP" on a... OK I can't remember the spec of the PC but it's at least an AMD Athlon 3200 with 1Gb RAM and loads of disk space.

Here's the full story.  I've converted a couple of Publisher documents without any problems.  I wanted to do a document that was split into 4 files.  It's an 8 page leaflet in A5 designed to be printed & folded.  Therefore front and back covers are one file and pages 1 & 6, 2 & 5 etc are in separate files.  Because that would create the right style of document I cut and paste each page in order into a new Publisher document.

I saved the document, printed to PDF Redict Pro and saved the resulting document.  When I looked at it Acrobat reader came up with an error message saying "An Unrecognised Token 1* Has Been Found".

This affects the first five pages ranging from blank to partial images but pages 6,7, and 8 seem OK.

I was about to post this message when I had a thought.  If I create PDF from the originals I get blank results from pages 1 and 6 (one file) and pages 2/5 generates an error messge in Reader saying "There is an Error processing this page.  There was a problem reading this document (135)

Any ideas?

Regards

Bob

Hello Bob,

   Good news on all fronts: I have 2 solutions to the problem you identified.

  • First, I have found a workaround which will work with the current version (v2.0.14/v2.0.15) of PDF reDirect Pro. Simply change the Truetype Font Download Option of the PDF reDirect Pro printer from "Outline" to "Automatic". When doing so, the PDF files are created properly. See the screenshot below. I recommend you follow this route for now.

 

  • Alternatively, the new BETA version of PDF reDirect Pro is being released today, and it will work with the default settings (ie no workaround required) as long as you use the latest version of AFPL Ghostscript (v8.50 or v8.51). For this to work, you will need to:
    • Download and Install PDF reDirect Pro BETA v2.0.900 (see [here] for all the details)
    • Download and Install AFPL Ghostscript v8.51 (available [here] - 10MB)
    • In the Preferences, select "AFPL Ghostscript" and point to the "bin" folder where AFPL Ghostscript v8.51 was installed.
