Can't print directory to PDF

Postby kevanwagoner » Sat Apr 16, 2011 8:48 am

Cambria not found, using Courier.

It worked fine for me, using CutePDF or PDFCreator, with Firefox on Windows 7. What PDF printer are you using? Browser? Operating System?
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.

Your PDF converter is having trouble with the fonts. It tried to substitute Courier for Cambria, and then gave up.

There is probably something in the directory output itself that your program is choking on (and I realize you may be using Adobe itself). Check to see if there is a direct to pdf function (not going through Distiller). And if that does not work, consider CutePDF or one of the programs others have suggested.

Sad that you would have to do that, though, if you are using the real thing and can't make it work.
