postscript errors when I print - Macromedia Freehand

When I try to print from FHMX to either our HP 8150 or our Oki C9500, the print job will fail with a Postscript error. On the page that gets printed, it says POSTSCRIPT ERROR: undefinedresult OFFENDING COMMAND: div VMSTATUS max: 17750168 avail: 17605228 level: 5 This is on a G5 running 10.3.9. I've tried reinstalling the PPD files but the problem persists. I'm starting to think it's a FHMX issue with how it writes out to Postscript. Any ideas for a fix? It's driving me bonkers....

    Default postscript errors when I print

    When I try to print from FHMX to either our HP 8150 or our Oki C9500, the print
    job will fail with a Postscript error. On the page that gets printed, it says

    POSTSCRIPT ERROR: undefinedresult OFFENDING COMMAND: div
    VMSTATUS max: 17750168 avail: 17605228 level: 5

    This is on a G5 running 10.3.9. I've tried reinstalling the PPD files but the
    problem persists. I'm starting to think it's a FHMX issue with how it writes
    out to Postscript.

    Any ideas for a fix? It's driving me bonkers.

    This is an 'Out of memory' error. How large is the file? Does it contain
    many fonts?

    Do you get this error if you print a very simple test file, such as only
    one rectangle, no fonts, on a page?

    Also, in the past on previous versions of freehand, I found that graphic line
    art with loads of dot to dot points can also prevent postscript output. I think
    there is also a top limit on how many points you can have in a "grouped" unit -
    I have been doing an outline drawing of the land masses today, and thats got
    lots of dot to dot points, and you have to keep this issue in mind - dont have
    points where there is no need to have them, and dont have too many in one
    group. So, rather than group everything together once, I grouped the main land
    areas.

    I get this error a lot with corrupt fonts. Is it all jobs? I agree with Judy.

    You might test it by creating a duplicate file and converting to just
    Helvetica and see if that's what's doing it.

    I've also seen this with super complex graphics - commonly created by using
    the trace tools. You can use the "simplify" under the extras to remove extra
    points from these graphics.
