I have 5 A0 maps, all have several data frames and many layers on.
I need to PDF these to get them to a printing company, but am having a load of issues.
Firstly, in the past I seem to get better results (quality) from Print to PDF using Adobe PDF rather than Export to PDF. Is that generally right?
So, I am trying to print to PDF but I am getting this error:
%%[ ProductName: Distiller ]%%
%%[ Error: limitcheck; OffendingCommand: eoclip ]%%
%%[ Flushing: rest of job (to end-of-file) will be ignored ]%%
%%[ Warning: PostScript error. No PDF file produced. ] %%
I think this is because the maps are just to complicated.
So, I have reverted to try to export them. However, on some of the data frames, the mapping is not the best quality, even when I set the quality controls to higher. I have read that when layers in a data frame a rasterised, the whole of the dataframe including the map is also rasterised. Is it very noticable the difference in quality on the PDF the quality of the base map between those data frames with layers on, and those without.
Anyway, in summary, ideally I would like to print to pdf, but if I have to export because there is no way around that error, how do I get the best results?
Yours in hope!
