Adobe PDF Printing Error

Feb 09


How do I fix PDF printing error in Adobe? I am running windows 7 & I get this error

%%[ ProductName: Distiller ]%%
Cambria not found, using Courier.
%%[ Error: invalidfont; OffendingCommand: show ]%%


%%[ Flushing: rest of job (to end-of-file) will be ignored ]%%
%%[ Warning: PostScript error. No PDF file produced. ] %%

Thanks Marcie


This is a common issue where Adobe cannot find the Cambria font and defaults to Courier, but is still unable to print the PDF.

Step 1: Open the document/publisher file you are trying to make into a PDF.

Step 2: Select Print, but instead of printing, select “printer settings”

Step 3: Under “Adobe Printer Settings” un-check the box that says “Rely on system fonts only; do not use document fonts” (See below)

Step 4: Print the document/publisher file and it will successfully print!


Unfortunately you will need to do this each and every time you try to print a web page as a pdf. as the above is only a quick fix.

However if you wish to make this fix permanent then please follow the next instructions:

Windows 7:

Step 1: Go to Devices and Printers.

Step 2: Look for Adobe Pdf.

Step 3: Right click and select printing preference tab.

Step 4: Uncheck the box “Rely on system fonts only; do not use document fonts” and click Apply then OK .

This will ensure the check box unchecked as the default setting & you won’t have to uncheck it every time.
