Topic: Problems creating PDF from multiple .qxp files in OSX
Conf: (P-PDF) Acrobat 6.0, Msg: 132184

Within Adobe Acrobat 6.0.3, our GA's are unable to create a PDF from
multiple quark files. I open Acrobat, then choose File-> Create PDF
->From multiple files. The Choose dialog box comes up and from there I
browse to an afp network drive and try to select quark files. All of the
quark files are greyed-out. I even change the "File Type" to "All files"
and only the quark Icons become active. After selecting the files, trying
to create the PDF, I get the error message: "No PDF file was created
because (filename.qxp) is a file type that Acrobat cannot convert to PDF.
Please try to remove it from the list and try again. -OK"

Normally the artist would use distiller by dragging multiple .qxp files onto
the distiller app. When doing so, distiller produces this error:

%%[ Flushing: rest of job (to end-of-file) will be ignored ]%%
%%[ Warning: PostScript error. No PDF file produced. ] %%
Distill Time: 0 seconds (00:00:00)
**** End of Job ****

The artist is able to create one PDF at a time from within Quark, then use
the resulting PDF's (or jpegs, whatever) to create a PDF from multiple
PDF files just fine, but Quark files won't work. Can anyone help resolve
this issue or show me an easy work-around?

Why eBooks and mobile devices don't (yet) pose an existential threat to the PDF

Continuous upheaval is what makes watching the technology industry so exciting. David vs. Goliath battles are waged every day, with startups often winning against much larger businesses. For years and years, many have predicted the decline of the PDF given its age and perceived disadvantages. Today, with the PDF losing ground in emerging areas like mobile and eBooks, the calls for its ultimate demise are growing louder.
