Indesign – problem printing document.
Posted on 2007-03-31
I have an Indesign file that just won't print. Background as follows: Mac OSX tiger.
Originally a Quark 4.1 file converted to Indesign CS. File is 9.3 mb, 114 page 8.5x11 book. All PMS colors converted to process. Original Quark file could print through classic interface and would take 30 minutes to process before printing. New indesign file takes longer to process perhaps and I'm not patient enough? However, I have converted the original Quark file to CS2 as well and sent it to print overnight and in the morning the printer was still processing. Printer is Canon IR C3220.
Some details. I've selected random pages of the Indesign document and printed with success. ex: pgs 1-2, front/back etc. But when trying to print entire document I have no luck. Another attempt: I've converted entire document to PDF and tried printing PDF. It appears that all pages get processed, (takes about 4 minutes) then printing begins. Yet the printing stops after page 23. (?) I would then try to reprint from same PDF the remaining pages (23-114). Again it appears that all pages gets processed, and this time only page 23 outputs. This occurs on PDF exported directly from Indesign file as well as a PDF that was created from a postscript file via Acrobat Distiller. Both PDF version only output pages through 23.
Pages 1-23 contains text, tifs, raster eps as well as vector eps. However, page 24 is a page display multiple logos only (vector eps). That is what I am currently troubleshooting. However, I don't understand why this file will print via the classic environment using quark and not with Indesign.
Anyone else have similar experiences? Thanks in advance.
