Topic: Cannot create PDF from multiple quark 6.5 files OSX
Conf: (P-PDF) Mac Issues, Msg: 132185

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 grayed-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:

Distilling: 14202 MC-9489 wallet

%%[ Error: undefined; OffendingCommand: MMXPR3 ]%%
%%[ 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?
