I’m working on a theatrical project that requires me to send rough drafts in pdf to the writers & producer from time to time. To help them know where I am in the script I make a text frame in Engraving mode with white background to the text, copy the relevant script into the frame and position it on to a part of the score that has empty bars.
I’ve found that if I then use the Print to Graphics dialogue in Dorico, Acrobat Reader won’t display the text frames in the resulting file (though everything else is fine), and instead I get this error message.
However, the same file will display perfectly in Foxit Reader & FlexiPDF. Not a huge problem except where the recipients are using Acrobat, which unfortunately they mostly are…
The current workaround is to do something that I think we’ve been advised against somewhere else on the forum, namely use the Printer dialogue to print to ‘Microsoft Print to PDF’, and this produces a file that displays perfectly in Acrobat.
Is this a bug, or am I not doing something right?
