I'm not suure if anyone else's got the same problem. I've got Adobe PDF writer 5 and was working fine with Office 2000. After I installed office xp, conversion of documents into pdf format has got some conversion errors... i.e black font becomes blue, symbols become different... any ideas?

Hi

I do not haven't got any problems with ofcXP/Acrobat, do you have the same problems with distiller?

Is the installation made properly (sorry for asking), there have been some problems with early versions of acrobat and ofc, you have to do choose the pdf writer when installing. If you made an update perhaps you just updated the rest and not the pdfwriter.

Uninstall acrobat and install it again and check so everything is installed and see if it helps.

Good luck

I haven't had this problem before with earlier versions of msoffice until I decided to intall officexp. It has nothing to do with the installation process. I suspect I may need a patch but haven't manage to see any on their website. I've also had problems with the distiller... works ok with IE, but not office xp....

Where does distiller fail ? IF you can print to a postscript file, distiller should have no problem making it a PDF. If the postscript printer deriver does not work, check Ad0be site for updates/ patches.

Hi

Sorry I forgot to mention that if you have the old version of acrobat (before 5.05?) then you might get problem with acrobat and need to DL a patch.

You can DL a patch at adobe homepage, but only for english versions I think.

I give you the link instead of UL the patch.

Re: Problem with Acrobat PDF Writer

Did you upgrade from Win 2000 to Win XP, i.e. no installation of Win XP on a newly formatted harddisk? If so, this might be an explanation for problems with Acrobat 5.0. And with several other Windows applications too (I have experience...)

The best way is to uninstall Acrobat 5, reboot (important!) and install again. Then, don't forget to update from 5.0 to 5.05, which contains several fixes for Win XP. The upgrade is downloadable from

Installations

One suggestion..... load acrobat again after XP/office... Some of the font and system files are used commonly and later installed software overwrites the existing..... want to work with acrobat writer ....install it again ..it may solve ur problem.

You can download the newest version of Acrobat Writer, and uninstall the old version of it , and install the newest version.

Your problem is due to lack of new fonts.
When you see the strange symbols or blank parts, it's because of the unknown font.
So you can simply install some new fonts and if the problem didn't solve, re-install pdf writer.
