Wrong with font file when printing InDesign

I get an error message when press print and the message is "There was a problem with the font file" (translated from Swedish) I have tried to change font but it dosent help. Anyone that have a solution to fix this problem?
I have started to use latest InDesign CC when this happened after used it for a couple of weeks. Running a HP 64 bit workstation with Windows XP

Sounds like it is warning you are missing a font in the document when printing it.
When you open the InDesign document, In the lower-left corner of your screen, do you see any errors?
Double-click the error. This will display the Preflight panel.
Click on the Expansion arrow next to Text.
Do you see a 'Mssing font' error? If yes, keep expanding until you can select the actual error.
At the bottom of the panel, click the expansion arrow to the left of Info. You'll be able to see a bit more information about the error, and also a tip on how you can fix it. E.g. you can either install the font on your computer, or replace it with another font before printing. If you click on the link to the far right of the error, it will take you to the text in the document that is formatted with a missing font.

  • Problems with .png files when printing

    Hi,
    When sending my InDesign document to print (from exported pdf's)
    some of my .png files are showing up with semi transparent boxes
    of a different shade than the surround. This reflects the size of the files.
    On screen these discrepancies are not apparrent.
    Where does this problem lie? In the way I have made the .png's?
    Or a setting in InDesign?
    Or with the printer?
    Any suggestions welcome,
    Thanks

  • AcroPro9, snow leopard, "Saving a PDF file when printing is not supported"

    Hi,
    I have AcroPro9.1.3 (and 8 and 7 and Dreamweaver CS3, and probably other stuff too) on Snow Leopard (10.6.1).
    I've read about de-installing the Acrobat printer and using "save as Adobe PDF" from the PDF button on the print menu.  However, when I try this, I'm told "Saving a PDF file when printing is not supported".  Note that this is AcroPro9, not AcroReader.  I get the same message when I try any of the other options under the PDF menu on the printer menu in Acrobat.  In other applications, tho, (eg powerpoint), the PDF button works fine.
    Before the upgrade, the PDF button on the print menu didn't work either (same message), so I used the Adobe printer, but now I can't.  I had always assumed that AcroPro was stopping me from using Apple's PDF generator in favour of the Adobe one.  But maybe some of my settings are wrong.
    I now cannot print to PDF from Acrobat.  Help.  There are 120 fourth year software engineering students who will appreciate any help I get, as I can then post my recent lecture notes for them.
    (What I really want to do is to take my powerpoint slides and print 4-up versions directly.  But the PPT idea of 4up wastes a lot of space, so I generate 1up PDF, and the 4up PDF from that using Acrobat.  At least, I used to.  It was so much easier in the old days with Latex and psnup ...)
    -- Mike G.

    My current solution is to print from Preview instead (which will let me use the Adobe print facility, unlike Acrobat itself).
    In fact, I pretty much have no need for Acrobat at the moment.
    Adobe and Apple between them seem to have some real problems with Snow Leopard.  I can't get Dreamweaver to run anymore without immediately crashing (yes I looked through the help forums, deleted settings, etc etc).  So I'm now looking for a replacement tool for Dreamweaver and will likely use that from now on.
    Adobe is not looking very good to me at the moment.  YMMV.

  • Message error: "Saving a PDF file when printing is not supported. Instead, choose File Save."

    I have 2 problems creating a .ps file.
    As i know, there are 2 ways of creating a Postcript file from a PDF.
    The first is from the Print monitor. I go through menu File/Page Setup i give the exact dimensions from my spreaded pages and after that i go to Print and when this window opens,
    i go down and left and i open the pop-up menu on"PDF" and i choose "Save PDF as Postscript"
    There is where i get the above error message :
    "Saving a PDF file when printing is not supported. Instead, choose File > Save."
    And the second scenario, i get an equal problem.
    If i go to Page setup and give the right dimensions of my spreaded document, after that i go to the File/Save as command, there is choose from the bottom pop-up menu, the option at Format: Postscript
    If i do that i get the following message:
    "The document could not be saved. An internal error occured."
    What is wrong with all this?
    Can anyone help me out?

    Thank you

    Yes, it happens on every PDF

  • Problems with color matching when printing...

         Hi, I work for a small family business in the P.O.P. industry.  We currently have myself and one other designer, we both take illustrator files that have come from the graphic design firm that we contract with and get them ready to print on our Vutek QS3200.  However ever since acquiring the printer we have begun to run into problems with the colors when printing.  When the files are exported off of my computer, I use either .tif or .pdf files, they print as they should, the colors seem to match the proof and everything goes smoothly.  However when the other designer exports a file, he tends to do mainly pdfs, the colors tend to be extremely different from where we want them.  Also we will get very strange results, such as yesterday he kept getting a faint yellow 1/2" border around his prints.  After I believe 3+ hours of him trying, I was given the original CD and instructed to try.  After 15-20 minutes of making the changes that we needed to make (adding a new price point) and ripping, mine printed perfectly. 
         We both use Macs, both have CS3 Design standard, only differences between the computers are mine is newer and a bit faster, and I'm running OS 10.5.6 and he has 10.4.  He has also at some point loaded various color profiles, whereas my CS package is just whatever the default is when I loaded it.  When we were being trained he grabbed the color profile off of the Colorburst RIP server and loaded onto his computer, plus I believe he has a couple for freelancing purposes on there as well.  My thought is that these profiles are somehow corrupting the files that are going through that computer, but I honestly am lost with it at the moment.  He believes the problem lies within the fact that he does not have the newer OS, I honestly cannot see that as having any effect on this at all.  I was wondering if anyone has run into any similar problems, or if anyone might have any advice on this issue?  I would really like to be able to solve this, as I was hired to do mainly structural design for the P.O.P. and I'm having to put in a lot of overtime to get my work done along with the additional work that I'm having to do.
    Thanks for your time

    I've got a few years experience calibrating large format printers.  First, the Yellow sounds like a file problem.  I used to work with two workstations, one PC ( RIP station ), and one Mac ( file prep station ).  I tend to agree with you in that the OS is probably not the problem.  But, any Colorburst profiles should remain in the RIP, not in the originator application.  My workflow consisted of creating EPS files that were based on established color settings in their given applications ( i.e., Illustrator, Photoshop ) which were interpreted by the RIP which had it's own calibrated profile ( perhaps more than one based on how many different substrates were being used ).  Your partner may be complicating things by incorporating a RIP profile prematurely.  If there are deviations big enough to be noticed, there has to be something in the application color settings that is causing some type of corruption.  This could lead back to the operating system, but I would think it lies somewhere in Bridge or the application color settings.  Start there.  You should seriously consider implementing a calibration system if you do not have one already.  Another slight possibility is the driver's ability to interpret files coming out of Leopard vs. files coming out of Tiger.  It may benefit you both to be in the same operating system dynamics, using the same driver versions and RIP profiles.  At the very least, match everything that is currently working successfully and put them on both machines.  If there is still a noticeable problem in color matching, then something is seriously wrong and you should call in a prepress profiling expert.  Hope this helps.

  • Print to PDF - using Snow Leopard (Saving a PDF file when printing is not supported. Instead, choose

    i have a PDF form that i created that is used as a custom proposal that my company sends out to potential clients. the form in its editable state is only used internally. we recently upgraded to snow leopard, but prior to the upgrade, we were able to fill the custom proposal form out using adobe reader, and, as you well know, we weren't able to save that edited document as a PDF with the custom form fields filled out. our work around using adobe reader was to print to a pdf using the adobe pdf printer in the printer dialog. with the addition of snow leopard, however, instead of choosing the adobe pdf printer, we were to choose PDF from the bottom left corner, then Save As PDF, and it would spit out an uneditable pdf that then allowed us to email it to the potential client without them being able to edit it as well as have an internal, digital copy for our records instead of having lots of paper floating around (i know this is also doable using security that disallows the client certain editing privileges, but printing to a pdf is much quicker and more efficient, and the pdf security isn't really that secure at its best).
    in any case, i came across this gem of a post here on the support forums that installs another option from the PDF drop down on the bottom left of the print dialog menu that reads Save As Adobe PDF and is supposed to do exactly what i am trying to get it to do...print to a pdf file from adobe reader.
    http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/509/cpsid_50981.html    
    once i updated to acrobat 9.2 (as the link above suggests 9.1), however, the Save As Adobe PDF does appear in the print dialog menu, but it still gives me the same error that acrobat 8 - 9 gave me while using Snow Leopard — Saving a PDF file when printing is not supported. Instead, choose File > Save — and as i've already explained, you can't save an edited pdf form in reader (as i am the only one in the office with acrobat) and still keep the fields as you've entered them in. the only work around is to print to a pdf but is apparently having some recent problems.
    using acrobat, however, i know that i can save the editable pdf as a new file with the fields customized as i have left them, but it still saves it as an editable pdf and the print to a pdf option still remains the best option...that way we have digital copies internally that are uneditable that can be printed at any time or emailed to the client.
    how can i do print to a pdf, based on what i've written above, using snow leopard and acrobat and reader?

    A simple way is to flatten the form fields, which converts the field appearances to regular page contents. You can do this with JavaScript or PDF Optimizer (Advanced > PDF Optimizer > Discard Objects > Flatten form fields). A very nice script that adds a custom menu item can be found here: http://www.uvsar.com/projects/acrobat/flattener/

  • Saving a PDF file when printing is not supported. Instead, choose File Save.

    I am using Mountain Lion (10.8.2) and I was using Adobe Reader version 9. In the past, I've always been able to print to file using the File -> Print dialogue but all of a sudden it stopped working. I read somewhere that installing the latest version of Adobe Reader (version 11) would remove the old printer, so I did so. It took me about an hour on version 11 to even find the pdf print to file option, but I am getting the same message. For what it's worth, when I try print to file from Microsoft Word, I have no problem. I have no idea why things changed all of a sudden, but does anyone have any idea how I can get this working again?

    I checked with Adobe.  No luck. 
    Allow me to clarify my problem: 
    I have Adobe Reader XI. I also use a Mac--imac and a MacBook Pro.   My adobe was updated on 12/24.  Prior to that point, I could open my print dialogue box and there was a PDF tab on the bottom left.  In the drop down menu there were many choices, including but not limited to Open in PDF Preview, Print PDF, Save PDF, email PDF.  If I selected one page of 30 pages from a document saved in Adobe, I could extract just that one page and save it or email it, without having to send the entire document.   After the update, when I open a PDF file using ADOBE READER XI, and then open the print dialogue box, and follow those same steps, I get the message "Saving a PDF file when printing is not supported. Instead, choose File > Save."   My question is why is this feature now unavailable and is there a way to fix it? 
    The answer I got from Adobe was that Adobe never had this function, so it must have been via my print or preview programs..which are apple.  Does anyone have any thoughts?
    Thank you.

  • Saving a PDF file when printing is not supported.

    Hi Guys,
    I upgrade from leopard to snow and now I don't have the possibility anymore to to print PDF as a PDF.
    Before I was going to print and then choose save as a pdf and everything ok.
    Now after the upgrade to snow every time that I am going to print a pdf from a pdf (acrobat 9 and X) I received this msg "Saving a PDF file when printing is not supported. Instead, choose File > Save "
    Why that happened ? how can I fix it?
    The thing is that I have a pdf form (contract) that I have to fill up and print it as a pdf.
    Now I can't do that I can save only the form with the fields unlock.
    thanks you in advance for your help.

    Ah.. this is so annoying filled in a long form.. which doesn't allow saving.. I assumed as normal with this type of form I could print to PDF and at least get a electronic copy.. but no, I made the mistake of installing Adobe Reader.. and it has screwed up the print options.. when I try to save as PDF from the print menu I get the helpful suggestion
    "Saving a PDF file when printing is not supported. Instead, choose File > Save."
    When I do as suggested.. it helpfully tells me that it will only save a "blank form"..
    Adobe has badly messed up their reader.. I now need to print out and then scan this document to get the electronic copy I need.. I will be uninstalling promptly after this fiasco..

  • Why does a mail-merge in MS Publisher split into multiple files when printed as a pdf file?

    Why does a mail-merge in MS Publisher split into multiple files when printed as a pdf file?

    'Cuz that's what mail merges do.  They create multiple documents based on the parent doc and all the names/addresses in your data tables.
    Perhaps if you describe exactly what you're trying to do & why you need PDF, we can point you to relevant tutorials.

    Double check the connections on each end to make sure they are nice and snug. If possible, plug the Nano into another existing USB 2.0 port. 
    Also, with the iPod still connected, try resetting it. To do this, press and hold both the Select (Center) and Menu buttons (or the Volume Down and Sleep/Wake buttons on the 6G Nano) long enough for the Apple logo to appear.
    Then try restoring the iPod again.

  • "font" problems when converting InDesign file to negative

    the printing service we use for our college newsletter, which is done in InDesign CS3, says he is having "font problems" when he turns the file into a negative (the master used for printing paper copies of the newsletter). I use only a standard font, "Times," in various sizes.
    he did not have this problem with InDesign CS2, and he is as yet unable to explain exactly what the problems are but said there are 3 pieces of equipment involved that each contribute to the problem: old vs new operating systems (OS) in RIP unit and workstation to newest applications and older RIP unit. (I haven't a clue what any of this means...)
    he has asked we create an "outline" of the InDesign file before sending it and believes doing that may help. however, when I create an outline of the document, all of the font turns bright red-- is this what is supposed to happen or am I doing something wrong?
    can anyone help me figure out how to help the printer?

    The .sitx file extension is a Stuffit executable, a way of compressing files so that they take less time to transfer. This has nothing to do with your problem.
    What I'm recommending is that you Export PDF (File > Export > Adobe PDF). Choose the Press Quality preset and send the resulting PDF to your printer. Scott's suggestion will give you a PDF with outlined type, but before you go that route, try a Press Quality PDF, which will have live type and embedded fonts.
    The best reason for sending PDF to your printer is to avoid font problems.

  • I can't figure out what im doing wrong with my File I/O program lol

    I'm new to the java language and was wondering if anybody could help me with the program i an writing. I don't quite understand file I/O but I've given it my best and I'm stuck. I'm supposed to write a program that will read in a file of student academic credit data and create a list of students on academic warning. The list of students on warning will be written to a file. Each line of the input file will contain the
    student name (a single String with no spaces), the number of semester hours earned (an integer), the total quality points earned (a double). The program should compute the GPA (grade point or quality point average) for each student (the total quality points divided by the number of semester hours) then write the student information to the output file if that student should be put on academic warning. A student will be on warning if he/she has a GPA less than 1.5 for students with fewer than 30 semester hours credit, 1.75 for students with fewer than 60 semester hours credit, and 2.0 for all other students. The instructions are :
    1. Set up a Scanner object scan from the input file and a PrintWriter outFile to the output file inside the try
    clause (see the comments in the program). Note that you’ll have to create the PrintWriter from a FileWriter,
    but you can still do it in a single statement.
    2. Inside the while loop add code to read the input file—get the name, the number of credit hours, and the
    number of quality points. Compute the GPA, determine if the student is on academic warning, and if so
    write the name, credit hours, and GPA (separated by spaces) to the output file.
    3. After the loop close the PrintWriter and Scanner objects in a finally block.
    4. Think about the exceptions that could be thrown by this program:
    • A FileNotFoundException if the input file does not exist
    • A InputMismatchException if it can’t read an int or double when it tries to – this indicates an error in the
    input file format
    • An IOException if something else goes wrong with the input or output stream
    Add a catch for each of these situations, and in each case give as specific a message as you can. The
    program will terminate if any of these exceptions is thrown, but at least you can supply the user with useful
    information.
    5. Test the program. Test data is in the file students.txt. Be sure to test each of the exceptions as well.
    My source code is:
    // Warning.java
    // Reads student data from a text file and writes data to another text file.
    import java.util.*;
    import java.io.*;
    public class Warning
    // Reads student data (name, semester hours, quality points) from a
    // text file, computes the GPA, then writes data to another file
    // if the student is placed on academic warning.
    public static void main (String[] args)
         int creditHrs; // number of semester hours earned
         double qualityPts; // number of quality points earned
         double gpa; // grade point (quality point) average
         Scanner scan=null;
         PrintWriter outFile=null;
         String name, inputName = "students.txt";
         String outputName = "warning.txt";
         try
              // Set up Scanner to input file
              scan=new Scanner(new FileInputStream(inputName));
              // Set up the output file stream
              outFile = new PrintWriter(new FileWriter(outputName));
              // Print a header to the output file
              outFile.println ();
              outFile.println ("Students on Academic Warning");
              outFile.println ();
              // Process the input file, one token at a time
              while (scan.hasNext())
                   // Get the credit hours and quality points and
                   // determine if the student is on warning. If so,
                   // write the student data to the output file.
                   name=scan.next();
                   creditHrs=scan.nextInt();
                   qualityPts=scan.nextDouble();
                   gpa=qualityPts/creditHrs;
                   if ((gpa < 1.5 && creditHrs < 30) || (gpa < 1.75 && creditHrs < 60) || (gpa < 2.0 && creditHrs >= 60))
                        outFile.print(name + " ");
                        outFile.print(creditHrs + " ");
                        outFile.print(qualityPts + " ");
                        outFile.print(gpa);
              //Add a catch for each of the specified exceptions, and in each case
              //give as specific a message as you can
    catch (FileNotFoundException e)
    System.out.println("The file " + inputName + " was not found.");
    catch (IOException e)
    System.out.println("The I/O operation failed and " + outputName + " could not be created.");
    catch (InputMismatchException e)
    System.out.println("The input information was not of the right type.");
              //Close both files in a finally block
    finally
         scan.close();
         outFile.close();
    The txt file is:
    Smith 27 83.7
    Jones 21 28.35
    Walker 96 182.4
    Doe 60 150
    Wood 100 400
    Street 33 57.4
    Taylor 83 190
    Davis 110 198
    Smart 75 292.5
    Bird 84 168
    Summers 52 83.2
    The program will run and then terminate without creating warning.txt. How can I get it to create the warning .txt file? Any help that you could give would be greatly appreciated.
