I am  using Freehand 10 to design some graphics. I am attempting to export them to a PDF file in order to upload them to a website for printing. The export takes place correctly, and I can open the PDF in Freehand again, however, I can't open the file in Acrobat, and as a result, I can't upload for printing. Something is going wrong and I don't know what.

Any advice is GREATLY appreciated.

Thanks.

What OS? OS X? If so, use the File>Print then Save As PDF function.

I'm using windows XP pro.

Using the File print then save as pdf function doesn't give me the resolution and/or format that I need.

Windows should do a better job of saving PDF from the print dialog than it does.

Tried saving as a postscript file and running it through distiller?

Tell me about it.

That's an interesting thought. I'll give it a shot. It's not the solution to the challenge, though, because according to Macromedia, I should be able to use their export function to get a usable PDF file, and it's obviously not doing that.

I wouldn't rely on any macromedia product to produce a great file format that Adobe created. That's why, if you were using OS X, the save as PDF function would be more reliable.
