Hi Dina Nov 24, 2005

Try printing your document as image.

Before printing I would close all programs and reboot the computer (quite often various strange things disappear after reboot).

To print the document as image in Acrobat, go to the menu File > Print > Advanced > Print as image.

Please note that the above location of this option is for Acrobat 6 (full version), and it may slightly differ for previous versions of Acrobat.

Instructions on how to solve the problem Nov 25, 2005

Please see the following explanation on how to solve the problem:

If you use 'Print as Image, note that it may take ages, depending on the complexity of the document-turned-image.

Good luck, Doron
