I am having problems exporting my magazine to pdf/x-4 for the printer.  I am using the same files that I used last month that were designed in AD and I had no problem with them last month.  This month it keeps coming up with a failed message when I am exporting.  I have tried to put in the same file from last month and it still fails but last month it saved them without a problem.  

The files are all stored on the hard drive of my iMac so it's not a problem from them being in the cloud.  

I've tried to use my Macbook pro as well to save the files and get the same problem.  

I have saved the file as a PDF for print for the printer but he wants it in pdf/x-4 and other than going through all 70 odd pages and converting all the adverts to flattened images I don't know what to do.

Thanks Jo

Thanks Gabe.  Have uploaded the publisher file and some of the advert files that are in designer that all gave me problems when I was trying to save the pdf/x-4.  I tried copying the text layers and rasterising them in case it was the fonts causing the problems.  They all saved fine last month and I haven't changed anything on the files except where I rasterised the text to get it to save.

Thanks Jo

Thanks. It seems to be some images that cause this issue. I'm not entirely sure why though. I'm afraid the only workaround for now is to export as PDF for Export or PDF for Print. Issue logged

Ok thanks for looking for me.  I don't get why it happened cause they were fine last month.  The printer has used the PDF for print this month and is letting me know if it all goes ok and i can use that in the future.
