TIP 29: Working with Acrobat Distiller

Only a limited number of programs have a PDFMaker installed with Acrobat 7, and not all programs have internal PDF-generating options for export. In many applications—illustration programs, for example—you can generate other file formats that can then be processed as PDF documents using Acrobat Distiller 7. You'll also use Distiller to create PDF documents that are press standard-compliant.

About Errors

If you open a file that contains errors, or is a format Distiller can't process, you'll receive an error, and the information about the problem appears in the log area at the bottom of the dialog. In Figure 29b, a Visio document was opened, and instead of its details displaying in the Distiller jobs list, an error icon appears; the contents of the error message display in the log area at the bottom of the dialog.
