Topic: Printing to PDF causes application to crash

Hi all,

I've been using Adobe Acrobat 6 Pro for quite some time, and i always have a problem: when i select certain fonts (I've reliazed most of the time they're opentype), and when i try to print to the adobe PDF printer, it causes word, excel, or whatever program im printing from to crash. I've tried some third party products (the trial versions, but it shouldn't make a difference), and the best results i've gotten is garbled text, misaligned text, or just another crash.

Any suggestison?
I've tried searching this problem but i don't exactly know what to search for.

Recently my company has implemented GetPDF so i can print directly to asever printer, but that also causes the progrram (in this case, MS Visio) to crash.

Any help is greatly appreciated
