    Default Procedure terminates with certain pdf files

    I have a procedure which automatically merges several pdf files. Certain pdfs created from scans cause the procedure to terminate. If I recreate the "problem pdf" by printing to my pdf print driver and saving that result, the procedure then works. I am unable to detect any difference between them to account for the problem, other than the fact that the one that works seems to be larger, or less compressed. I have attached two files, one good and one bad, as samples.

    I am using A5 version 9. It's a wonderful application created by the very talented Al Buchholz.

    Thanks,
    Jeff Joseph

    Default Re: Procedure terminates with certain pdf files

    Under V8 I was not able to merge those two files with either as the base. Under V10 I can merge either way. (Not running V9 here, I'll try to check that tonight at home.)

    Not that it helps but may shed some light for others. I get an error under V8, not termination.

    Stan,
    Thanks you for your efforts. It seems like it's an Alpha 5 issue, as opposed to something wrong with the pdfs. Maybe someone else has run into this problem and can assist.

    Thanks again,
    Jeff Joseph

    It seems to be an issue with the implementation of pdf merge in earlier versions of Alpha 5. But since Adobe Reader updates about every 30 days, that's not surprising. Likely your bad file was generated with a more recent pdf driver?
