hi i'd noticed this irritating symptom: when i print my file to postscript using FHMX, it'll indicate printing page 1...in progress. after completing, i checked the size of the .ps file, the file keeps increasing in size and i need to wait until the number stops before i can use distiller to create a pdf. why is this happening? i'm using FHMX 11.0.2 on OS10.3.3 on eMac 800mhz 512mb ram...

    Default Error printing to postscript

    hi

    i'd noticed this irritating symptom:

    when i print my file to postscript using FHMX, it'll indicate printing page
    1...in progress.
    after completing, i checked the size of the .ps file, the file keeps
    increasing in size and i need to wait until the number stops before i can use
    distiller to create a pdf.

    why is this happening?

    i'm using FHMX 11.0.2 on OS10.3.3 on eMac 800mhz 512mb ram

    Default Re: Error printing to postscript

    The OS is writing the PS file in the background, because you have
    Background Printing turned on. This is not a bad thing. It allows the
    application you are printing from to be freed up while the writing of
    the file is done by the OS. You can actually start the distilling
    process earlier, you just have to time it right so that Distiller
    doesn't catch up to the file being written. If you open up the Print
    Center you will see it being written.
