PPML error - failed to write external file


Recommended Posts

New to FusionPro, besides the excessive crashing, freezing, and unexplained errors it's really great! I'm being a bit facetious...

 

 

So, trying to create PPML output for a variable data job with a "switch" rule for 8 images. Can create a PDF fine, but it gives me that error when I try and create a PPML file. Here's the output msg:

At a very minimum, you need to specify the exact versions of FusionPro, your operating system, and Acrobat. Then someone from Support will be able to help with your specific problem.

 

Also, please try to minimize the swear words in posts, even in file names from log messages. Thanks.

Thanks for the reply Dan. You'll forgive me if I don't apologize for the comments or filenames of the original poster. I just happened to see a thread about the same error I'm having...

 

I am running FP 8.0.20, Acrobat 10.1.3, Mac OS X 10.6.8.

 

This error only occurs when "Use original graphics" is checked, which is the default, and is recommended in the FP manual. Error messages pasted below...

I'm actually not sure that you're having exactly the same problem as the original poster. At any rate, what are the other settings in the PPML Options dialog? Do you have a path specified for "Save graphics to external file?"
