adobe distiller crash while printing ms access report (landscape, full page graphics)
Posted on 2008-10-01
Distiller crashes on large, graphic intensive report generated by MS ACCESS. full page graphic on landscape report, margins set to .5 all around. Data is overlayed on graphic. Graphic is grey-scaled .gif at about 500 kb, (linked and/or embedded--I've tried both). Distiller is 8.1.2 with latest patches and works for everything else.
Machine is 2.8 Mhz with 3 Gb ram. I've printed graphical data reports before to pdf, but this is largest.
I have tried various pdf settings without resolution, but can't be sure I'm doing this efficiently.
Report could easily surpass 1,000 pages. I've tried smaller runs, but it still crashes.
Any hints for settings changes or resolution:
