  • problems creating PDF from quark

    I am trying to make a PDF from quark by creating a .ps file and then distilling it. I keep getting this error in distiller:

    %%[ Error: undefinedresult; OffendingCommand: stringwidth ]%%

    Stack:
    (-)
    false

    As far as I can see the settings are correct, does anyone have any ideas on whats causing this error?

    Btw quark sucks! I have normally use indesign now but unfortunately this is an old quark file that needs some updating!

    That message is kinda generic, you can get that with a whole slew of different issues.
    It could possibly be a font problem, but who knows.
    What version of Quark?
    What driver are you using to make the .ps file with?
    Make sure you select the same printer/driver in the page set-up and in the print dialog box.
    Have you tried going from ASCII to Binary in the output tab?

      Actually I've managed to solve the problem now.

      I did the same process of creating a PDF with all of the pages in the document until I found one that was causing the problems.

      It was caused by a text box that was rotated!! When it was straight it made a PDF no probs, as soon as it rotated there were errors. I just made a new text box and it worked fine!

      Quark grrrrr!
