I am a working on a AD for a client in InDesign and for some reason when I go to export it to a PDF format I keep getting an error message that reads, "Cannot Export to PDF".  Immediately after, Adobe crashes and shuts down.  I have tried to debug [one of the options I receive instead of shutting down the program]but nothing works.

I have created three other design pieces using the same artwork and elements in this AD and every piece has exported.  Now none of them will. I have tried exporting past projects to see if it is the program. It is only happening with this particular project.

Some element of the AD must be corrupt, but why now when I have been able to export it before? Any ideas on how to fix it?  

RE: Need Help!

Tried printing it to a PDF printer, and it worked well enough for the purpose I needed it to.  But I am still curious about what is causing this.

Sonopace - I think you'd be better asking in this other forum:

Thanks, I am new and couldn't find anything strictly for Adobe programs.
