Topic: Distiller Version 5 Embedded Fonts
Conf: (P-PDF) Mac Issues, Msg: 164051

Hi, I'm running Mac OSX 10.4.11 with OS9 classic running Acrobat
Version 5. I need to embed fonts in an article to submit to a publisher.

Every time I try to open Adobe Acrobat Distiller 5.0 (Mac OS9) a dialog
appears saying:

"Connection Failed. This file server is running on your machine. Please
access the volumes and files locally." I don't know what to do with that?

When I click OK, Distiller ready bar does not progress and everything just
waits there for someone smarter than me to do something.

Also it may be that the font is an OS X font, while Distiller is limited to OS
9 fonts or something????

The same dialog appears when I open Photoshop 6.01 using OS9.

What should I do to overcome this problem. Thanks,

Two Passwords Are Better Than One: The Low-Down On PDF Security
