Re: [xep-support] pdf error with xep 3.6.2

Hello Steve,

Your problem description is too vague to say something specific. And
you are using rather old version of XEP. The main suggestion - try to
upgrade to the latest release in 3.x branch (that is XEP 3.8.4).

Best regards,
Alexander Peshkov

FS> Hello,

FS> We use XEP 3.6.2 to generate PDF's from FO files, and most of the time,
FS> everything works great. But occasionally, if we open the generated PDF in
FS> Adobe Acrobat Reader (versions 6 or 7), we receive the following error:

FS> There was an error processing a page. There was a problem reading this
FS> document (18).

FS> After that, some pages display ok, while others are just blank white pages.
FS> It appears that when there are errors, the pages that don't display are
FS> confined to content from specific page-sequences in the FO file. So for
FS> each page-sequence within the FO, the PDF content either all displays fine,
FS> or all pages are blank. It does have the correct total number of pages
FS> though.

FS> Then if we reprocess the same FO file, the new PDF works fine. There does
FS> not seem to be a way to reproduce the problem intentionally, even using an
FS> FO file which generated a bad PDF once. Does anyone know what the problem
FS> might be? Thanks!
