Unable to mark the box 'create Multi-page PDF from page tiles' when saving to pdf-file

I am running Illustrator CS3 on a Mac OSX 10.5.8
I want to print a very large illustrator-file (1000 mm x 900 mm) across mutliple pages of A4-paper (5 x 5 sheets of A4-paper) by saving the file as a multi-page pdf file.
I first followed the instructions provided here:
http://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/kb/create-mutli-page-pdf-illustrator.html
When I then tried to save the file: -> File -> Save as -> 'choose .pdf from drop-down menu'
I get to this menu:
I am unable to mark the box that says: 'Create multi-page pdf from page tiles'. I have made a red arrow pointing to the box I want to mark.
I have tried changing the other drop-down menus inside this menu, to see if the box I want to mark could become available, but without any luck.
I am not sure what I am doing wrong. I would be grateful if anyone could help me set my settings right to allow me to create such a multi-page pdf-file.
Thanks in advance for your help

Your ps file should be good, the problem likely resides elswehere. Maybe in your acrobat install, distillers settings. what error did distiller give?
Mine ran good and got a multi page document, here is a screenshot to help you troubleshoot.
On mac go to system preferences / print and fax / and change your default printer if you have another option. I know sounds like this should not help, but there are problems like Illustrator for example not making .pdfs if you do not have a printer chosen or an old or corrupt .ppd assigned.

  • Creating multi-page PDF from Page Tiles

    Trying to save out a page-tiled Illustrator document to multi page PDF. The "Create Multi-Page PDF from Page Tiles" is ghosted/disabled when I save out as PDF; and printing to PDF doesn't size page edges properly. I've followed all directions and re-created new docs to see if I can get this to work, no luck.
    Is there a trick I'm missing? Using Illustrator CS3 13.0.2 Mac, Acrobat 8.1.3. Thanks!

    This would be hard to answer but you must be missing something the question is what are you doing and how is the document set up and then the really important question what are doing wrong. Which I know you want us to tell you but without knowing what that is we cannot tell you what not to do.
    If there is something you can tell that might give us a clue perhaps we can help.

    I have a Windows copy of Photoshop Elements 11, but the serial number has been lost. I didn't buy the product and I am unable to find the box. As far as I know, it's never been used so has not been registered. Does anyone know how the serial number can be recovered under these circumstances?

    If you never bought the product then you cannot get the serial number.

  • Since upgrading iTunes 10.5.1.42, I have been unable to use the "Advanced - Create iPad or Apple TV Version" to convert movies.

     I have been unable to use the "Advanced - Create iPad or Apple TV Version" to convert my movies for use with my iPad2. The movie will go through the conversion process, and is the correct length, but the video is a black and there is no sound? Has anyone found a similar problem? If so, what can I do to fix the problem? Before I used Handbrake to convert the videos which worked well, but now that is not working either .

    No, there is no direct download link. Those are days of the past, I'm afraid. You may need to reinstall Mavericks.
    Install or Reinstall Yosemite, Mavericks, Mountain Lion, or Lion from Scratch
    Be sure you backup your files to an external drive or second internal drive because the following procedure will remove everything from the hard drive.

  • When saving my illustrator file to a pdf it doesnt show all the artwork ie boxes are hidden in the pdf or only showing part of them. How can I fix this?

    when saving my illustrator file to a pdf it doesnt show all the artwork ie boxes are hidden in the pdf or only showing part of them. Even some text is hidden. I have flattened the artwork so everything is in one layer. How can I fix this?

    Hi John
    I have indicated on the attached jpeg where the problem is, basically a line of text is missing at the top and part of the feeding diagram is missing. I created the artwork in different layer and then flattened. All text has been converted to outlines, however the areas being affected have no transparency, I have used solid fills or no fills. I get the same result when I export the file as a jpeg. Hope you can help.

    Presumably a Premiere Elements question. For future reference note that Premiere Elements has its own forum and you should post further PRE questions there. But the answer to your question is in the PRE FAQ entry - http://forums.adobe.com/thread/433730?tstart=30.

  • When saving a PDF from a FrameMaker book, is it possible to set document filenames as bookmarks in the PDF?

    When saving a PDF from a FrameMaker book, is it possible to set document filenames as bookmarks in the PDF? Currently when I have a Framemaker book that I want to save as a PDF, I choose Save Book As and then choose PDF for the file format. A dialog box comes up in which I can choose the Bookmarks tab and choose which tagged content I want to be made into bookmarks in the PDF file. What if I would rather have the filename of a document rather than the chapter title be a bookmark in the PDF? Is that possible? Where would I choose that option? Thanks!

    There are two ways that you could do this. You can either use postscript text frames and enter the correct pdfmark entries to show the file name with the corresponding actions (i.e. where to go in the PDF) or you can use hidden text in FM and the "Filename (Short) " variable in a unique paratag to be picked up by FM's bookmark creation.
    To go the pdfmark route, see http://www.pdflib.com/fileadmin/pdflib/pdf/pdfmark_primer.pdf for details and also consult the Adobe Pdfmark Reference manual (http://www.adobe.com/content/dam/Adobe/en/devnet/acrobat/pdfs/pdfmark_reference.pdf).
    The hidden text route would use FM's Color Views to specify a colour as Invisible. This will make the content visually disappear from the screen (and any output), but FM will still be able to read the contents of any text that is coloured with the Invisible colour(s).
    1. Pick or create a colour that you want to be invisible. [Magenta is usually a good bet and stands out visually].
    2. Set that colour to be invisible in View 1 and visible in View 6. [you can use the shortcut <esc> v 1 and <esc> v 6 to toggle between the views.]
    3. Create a paratag to use for the filename and set the font colour to use the invisible colour.
    3. In the title of each chapter file, drop an anchored frame that is set to be outside of the text frame [so it won't interfere with any other content].
    4. In that AFrame, insert a text frame and use the invisible paratag defined in step 3.
    5. Insert the Filename (Short) variable in that text frame.
    6. Repeat steps for all files to be included in the bookmarks.
    When creating the PDF bookmarks, select only the paratag used for the invisible colour.
    Don't forget to toggle the View to be invisible (i.e. <esc> v 1  - this also works at the book level for all files in the book).

  • How to keep crop marks when saving as PDF

    In Illustrator CS5, I have some artwork which has 3mm bleeds all around.  The printing shop requires me to provide the artwork with the bleed and also the crop marks showing as well in PDF format.  But whenever I save as PDF, Illustrator doesn't show the crop marks I have made.  I've tried selecting print trim marks in the save as dialog boxes, but this only puts marks right at the edges, after the bleed areas, making the trimming marks incorrectly placed.  I'm pulling my hair out!!  Please can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong.
    Thanks in advance!!
    Joe

    That didn't work for me.  In fact, the only way I could get it correctly was to enlarge my artwork to extend over the artboard and then when saving as PDF to tick the printer trim marks boxes.  Not as easy or straightforward as with a crop mark, but it seems to be working now.
    Thanks anyway for all your input!

  • Canot email in pdf from pages + keynote with iPad air

    I can't email à document in PDF from pages and keynote with iPad air. I reset the iPad an it don't work

    Can you mail the files in any other format at all? Did you try emailing a Pages file as a Pages file or as a Word doc?
    OK. My response was too late. If you can email them in another format, I don't see how the problem could be with the mail app, but I suppose it's possible anyway. I know that you restored the iPad, and this should help, but try resetting all settings.
    Settings>General>Reset>Reset all settings. No data will be lost but all of your settings will have to be entered again.

    Set up the Preflight panel so it checks image resolution. Ask your printer what the appropriate resolution is for your printing process, and set that in Preflight.

  • No crop mark option when saving as PDF in CS4

    I am using photoshop CS4 on a PC.
    When saving as a PDF on the left hand side option list there is no crop mark/ trim option available (listed with output, compression etc).
    When saving as a PDF via the print option the image loses its high res dpi so this method is not an option.
    Any suggestions to how i can get the trim mark option when "saving as PDF"?
    Thanks :-)

    Select show options when placing and select the appropriate crop to choice.

  • Exporting to pdf from Pages 9 turns all text color to white

    I made a 34 page document for someone, exported to pdf and sent it to him. He called me asking why all the text came out white. The only reason you could see the text is because I had a tinted background on every page. Tried several times and the black comes out white in the pdf document. Any one had that problem before?

    I'm using Acrobat pro 9.
    I have been using Pages and exporting to pdf for more than a year now and never had this problem. The file I'm working with is a word document sent to me by my customer that I copied and pasted into Pages. I found a way around it by doing the following: I clicked print. In the print window, there is a scroll down button that gives the option of saving to pdf or to postcript. Saving to pdf gave me the same problem, so I saced to postscript. I opened the postcript file withpreview and from there exported to pdf to get it to work finally.
    This is what the file should look like
    This is what I get when I export from the file menu

  • What happened to all the compressors when saving a wav file?

    When saving a wav file in Soundbooth CS3 you had your choice of 7 different compressors. In Soundbooth CS4 you can only save a wav file uncompressed. My office has to save wav files using the CCITT u-Law compressor for uploading to Verizon's VoIP system when we create auto-attendant messages.
    I could download a program that will save audio files into other formats, including the CCITT u-Law format, but I would prefer to just use Soundbooth and copying the CompilerWave.prm file from CS3 into CS4 doesn't work. Is there any way to get these compressors back without having to use another program?

    Hi,
    Several of the WAV compressors available in Soundbooth CS3, including the CCITT u-Law, will be available soon. There were some issues with including them in CS4, but those problems have been resolved. I apologize for the inconvenience. On the upside, the codecs are now faster and several bugs were addressed.
    I'll post an announcement here when this is available, and I believe it will show up in the Adobe Updater tool.
