I am running Preps 5.1.4 (mixed workflow) on Windows 2000 with Acrobat 5.0.5 running Agfa Apogee S3 v. 5.5. I had upgraded to Preps 5.2 and Acrobat 7 a while back but had problems with Identity-H characters dropping out. I was unable to covert to a PDF workflow at the time (which seemed to take care of that issue) because of the template marks and work load so reverted back to Preps 5.1.4 and Acrobat 5.0.5 for the moment. Has anyone had experience with Preps and PDF files generated with Ghostscript and or Mac PDF Quartz Context writer in any version of Preps? Successful?
It is a hit and miss with Ghostscript. Much like the Identity-H issue I had, the characters sometimes will drop out. There does not seem to be any one character that drops out. A character may print fine in one sentence and be gone in the next. I have had no luck what so ever with PDF Quartz Context writer files. The output is never readable. Will a complete PDF workflow rectify my issues?
Thanks in advance--Brenda
