    Check your links, are they all embedded or actually linked? If a specific link has 1 question mark next to it, it's embedded. If it has 2 question marks, one on either side of the specific link, it is not embedded and has lost it's link. You will nedd to fix this.


    Another possibility, is that one of the links is corrupt, or not compatible with PM7. Afterall, it has not been supported for over 12 years. File formats such as newer versions of PDF with transparency and PSD files WILL not print. JPGs become corrupt quite frequently because of the nature of their compression. Check all of your links.


    Is this job specific, or are you having this problem a lot?

I agree with DCS13 it's a links problem. Maybe not so much one that is missing but one that is incompatible. PageMaker was a PostScript Level2 application, and as most Adobe (owners of PostScript) apps are Level3 since about 2001/2 most generically made items containing postscript (.eps, .pdf, .psd) will likely have problems printing to a postscript device. I assume you're using this for work purposes as if you were a home user it would be most unlikely you have a PostScript printer - unless you're trying to make a PDF of the file.
There's a couple of solutions, all involve removing the incompatible postscript language of your placed images. IF an image/file was supplied to you and it's the culprit, have the supplier remake the artwork at a Level2 postscript (or if it's a PDF a version 4 compatible PDF - Acrobat v1.3); if it's not supplied and maybe clipart or a web image, take it into Illustrator or Photoshop and save it as a relevent file type - be aware of rasterising type if it contains text and try and keep to a high resolution.
It's been some time since you've posted this, so an update would be good - how did you go?

Just make new document, then copy all content to the new document and save it, that would fix the problem.

I WANT TO CONVERT PMD TO PDF


A .pmd (PageMaker) document can usually be exported or "saved as" a .pdf (Picture Document Format) very easily. BUT, when you first installed PageMaker, did you also install the filter to handle that conversion?

From within PageMaker, use the "Print" option but instead of chosing a printer, choose the Adobe Distiller as your printer. If the distiller is not listed in your printers list, get your PageMaker installation disks and re-install the distiller. It should be listed under "Filters".

This works for me.
It only works on documents that you have created by launching Pagemaker 7 (windows 7, 64 bit) as administrator (Right click on icon and choose "run as administrator". Spellcheck works for me on all such documents but not on previous documents not launched as administrator.

Graphics do nor print for Pagemaker document


It's probaby a setting issue when you go to print. When you start to print, a check box for "Proof" will be in the print dialogue box. If that's checked, it prints graphics as x-boxes. Uncheck it and try printing again. That should solve the problem.

Im using adobe pagemaker 7 and when i tried to insert a picture, it wont and says bad index 8901 or invalid content. please help me find a solution


That sounds like a problem with the source file rather than PM.
Open the image in a regular graphics program and save it under a different file name and as a JPG/JPEG format. Then try and import to PM.

Translate a pagemaker file into indesign


This is from Adobe InDesign (CS3) Help module:
Convert PageMaker documents InDesign can convert document and template files from Adobe PageMaker 6.0 and later. When you open a PageMaker file, InDesign converts the original file information to native InDesign information. InDesign files are saved with an .indd filename extension.
For more information, see the PageMaker Conversion Guide (PDF) at www.adobe.com/go/learn_pmconv. Before opening the document in InDesign, you may want to do the following:
  • If the PageMaker file or its linked graphics are located on a network server, floppy disk, or removable drive, it may not open as expected if an interruption in data transfer occurs. To prevent data transfer problems, copy documents and their links to the hard disk, preferably in the same folder where the PageMaker publication is stored, before opening them in InDesign.
  • You may want to use Save As in PageMaker to clear unnecessary hidden data.
  • To ensure that all links are maintained, copy all linked files to the same folder where the PageMaker publication is stored.
  • Make sure that all necessary fonts are available in InDesign.
  • Repair broken graphics links in the PageMaker publication.
  • If you have a problem converting a large PageMaker document, convert portions of the PageMaker file separately to isolate the problem.
If you cannot open a corrupt PageMaker document in PageMaker, try opening it in InDesign. InDesign can recover most documents that PageMaker cannot open.
