Do not know what i've done, as I am not a newbie to quark 6.5, I use all the time, some setting must have gotten changed somewhere in Quark or possibly in acrobat 7.0 or distiller. As I was fratically working around with the 2 programs trying to get a brochure to print that I had made up in quark which included 2 imported pdf' files. The brochure did not want to print correctly on my Color Laserjet (appeared to be having postcript problems with the pdf's I had in my document-this is not the problem I want solved at the moment though). Anyhow the pdf's i were importing were made directly from quark files so I thought if i made them into eps files first and then opened Acrobat Distiller and then opened the eps files from there to make into pdf's I seemed to have better luck getting things to print ok. Somewhere along the line, don't know if I accidentally changed a setting in Quark or Distiller, but I cannot import any pdf files as I get an error saying that the " Security settings are set or it is password protected" . I did a repair permissions on my entire hardrive from the OSX install disk and at first try afterwards it did import a pdf but just that time then I was back to the same errors. This is really Odd because I CAN place these pdf files into INDesign just fine. Hope someone has some answers. Any help is appreciated.
