Usually an offending command statement displays the name of a
PostScript command that is somehow incorrect at that location in the
PostScript code, for some reason or other.
If your company initials are identified as the offending command, it's
possible that one or more of your files is corrupted in a way that
confuses the printing process.
One approach to remove corruption from FM files is to save a backup
copy of each file to a new name or location, then save each as MIF
(File > Save As > Maker Interchange), then open each MIF file (File >
Open) and save as the original file name, overwriting the original
file. Your book file is already created new from scratch, so it's
probably already cleaned up.
Save all files, keep all files open, and try printing again.
Let us know how this works.
PS: Thanks for your good example of providing as much detail as
possible, to make troubleshooting easier.
