Hi Jay, I have the same problem, but with Acrobat 6. I'm also using Frame 7.2unstructured in Windows XP Pro SP2 and I've also followed Dov's recommendations to set up my Adobe PDF printer driver instance and Adobe PDF Settings (Job Options).
This is what happens (sometimes): 1. I try to create a PDF of a Frame book (using Print to PDF or Save as): Frame crashes (Internal error, bla bla bla). 2. I try to create a PDF of a single chapter: Frame crashes too. 3. I open the same book or file in FrameMaker 7.0: everything's fine there, I can create a PDF without any problems. 4. I open the book or file in Frame 7.2 again: everything's fine now, I can create a PDF too. Indeed, very strange behavior, but I think FrameMaker 7.2 (or maybe some plug-in?) is the problem, not Acrobat, because everything works fine with FrameMaker 7.0. I'm just gonna keep my fingers crossed when I create a PDF from Frame 7.2and hope for the best with Frame 8.0 this summer. ;-) Cheers -- Yves Barbion Documentation Architect Adobe-Certified FrameMaker Instructor ____________________________________ Scripto bvba Asselsstraat 65 9031 Gent Belgium T: +32 494 12 01 89 F: +32 9 366 50 32 BTW (VAT) BE 0886.192.394 skype: yves.barbion ____________________________________ On 5/3/07, Rush, Jay <jrush at c-cor.com> wrote: > > XP Pro SP2, Frame 7.2p158, Unstructured > > > > I upgraded to Acrobat 8 Pro (bundled with CS3 Design Premium Upgrade). > It uninstalled Acrobat 7 Pro as part of the install.
