Hello,
I just registered here. I found this forum by searching the internet for a solution to a problem I am having with my pdf's. I am not an expert on pdf's, but I have, through trial and error, found a method that works for me. Up until just recently I have had no problems generating my pdf files using Distiller 5.0 and reading/printing them from Acrobat 5.0.

A few days ago I generated four "prn" files to be distilled by the Distiller using the same settings I always do. After creating the pdf files, only one of the four were readable. The others gave me "colorspace" errors upon opening them in Acrobat5.0. There is no unique content in the file that worked versus the files that don't.

One error message indicates that colorspace named '%s' could not be found. Another says that colorspace named CS8 could not be found. I am really confused because all of these files were generated in the same session using the same settings.

I've seen these types of errors associated with trying to open a pdf using an older version of Acrobat than the version used to create it, but that is not the case here. I am using Distiller 5.0 and Acrobat 5.0 to create and read the documents. Upgrading to the latest version of Acrobat Reader has not helped.

Can anyone help me to resolve this problem? Thanks in advance.

Bruce

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.
