    I cannot tell it exactly but it looks like the problem is due
    to Type 1 font embedding (?). Since I don't have access
    to your fonts, I would be very grateful if you could send
    me the PostScript output for your sample off-list to, so that we could analyze
    the issue. If possible, I would also like to have the part of
    your fonts.xml that describes Officina-* and Nimbus-*
    fonts, and the font files themselves (both AFM and PFA/PFB).

    Best regards,
    Nikolai Grigoriev

    Subject: [xep-support] PDF/PS error in XEP 3.74 generated file


    I used to have problems with Adobe Acrobat / Xerox Phaser 7700
    incompatibility. As I got to know the problem is in the way Acrobat
    prints PDF to postscript printer (builds new postscript).

    So I tried to solve the problem with GhostView (part of GhostScript
    8.14 for win32). I'm now able to print XEP generated PDF files that I
    used to be unable to print with Adobe Acrobat.

    The problem is that even GhostView is unable to open some XEP
    generated PDF (and even PS) files (see attached logfile). Contrary to
    GhostView Adobe Acrobat is can still open the file but not print.
    In this case XEp doesn't complain about anything during PDF generating.

    Whats wrong?

    Attached files:
    gverr_pdf.txt - GhostView error log, opening PDF
    gverr_ps.txt - GhostView error log, opening PS
    xep_pdf.txt - XEP log, generating PDF (PS is almost the same) - FO used for PDF generation
