Problem printing PDF from Freehand-10 via Acrobat X

When I go to print a pdf file with “Adobe PDF printer”, I get the following error:

cannot complete command because read or write access has been denied.

This very strange error only appears if I change the paper size in the PPD settings. If I leave the default A4 size the PDF is generated without any problem.

When the error comes to light I need to delete the fhprefs.txt file. I tried to put somenthing like “whatever” in the export preferences of freehand, but that did not solved the problem.


You don’t mention the OS, but this may be a permissions issue. Perhaps if you ran freehand as administrator.
