Problem creating PDF from Pagemaker 7.0

Hello all,

i'm trying to create a PDF file from a Pagemaker file.

We have a lot of newsletters and some of then will create the PDF, others will not. Then after a lot of research we find out that the problem is on some specific images that we have on the newsletters. So what happen, on the newsletter that does not convert to PDF, is that if u try to convert only that page with the graphic it does not convert, but if u try without that page it does. I know what graphic is, i tried to remove the graphic and then try to PDF again, it works, but we need to use that graphic.

If i go to Link Info on the graphic it says that the kind is Enhanced metafile (if this helps).

Another thing is the error message we are getting:
%%[ Error: typecheck; OffendingCommand: setcolor ]%%

Stack:

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

I believe it has something to do with color type of the image, but i tried a lot of things, none worked.

If i create a PS file, instead of the PDF and then try to send to distiller i get the same error.

Does anyone have a good idea? :)

Thanks a lot

The setcolor command does what it's name says: It sets the current color. Depending on the color space currently active, it takes a different number of argumets. It looks like the PostScript code contains three values (probably RGB), but the current colorspace requires a different (larger) number (probably four for CMYK). What color space is the image in that causes the problem? What color space are you outputting?
How did you insert the image?
Can you use PhotoShop and convert the image to e.g. a CMYK TIFF file and import it again?

How can i check what color space am i outputting?

The image was inserted pasting ( Ctrl+V ) it onto Pagemaker.
I'll try to convert the image on Photoshop.

The things that i tried was more or less changing the settings on many places around the print options

Thanks a lot

I'm not familiar with Pagemaker, so I don't know how to either check the color space of an image (but you can certainly do this in Photoshop), or to set the output color space.
I would take the image and open it in PhotoShop and save it as CMYK TIFF, and then place this image file into the Pagemaker document.
