-Good Day Everyone

To make a long story short, I've been trying to print an In-Design booklet to .pdf and I've been repeatedly getting the following error, which appears in a notepad window:

%%[ ProductName: Distiller ]%%

%%[ Error: syntaxerror; OffendingCommand: % ]%%

%%[ Flushing: rest of job (to end-of-file) will be ignored ]%%
%%[ Warning: PostScript error. No PDF file produced. ] %%

I'll be the first to say that I have absolutely no idea what is going on here. Is there anyone around who might have an idea of what is going wrong? The document is somewhat urgent, so I'd really like to have it soon. Thanks!

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.
