    Help. I use Pages a lot, but I've been encountering a problem recently when I export a file to PDF. When I open a Pages file I've exported to PDF in Adobe Reader or Acrobat Pro I get this error message: Token type not recognized.

    The file seemed corrupted - missing photos, texts, etc. But when I open the same PDF file in Preview, it's ok.

    Has anyone out there encountered this? I tried doing a search in Adobe Online Support, but couldn't find anything there.

    Thanks.

    Check to make sure that you don't have any wide dashes that might have gotten into the text from pasting in from MS Word, etc. My boss had a red box with text in in that was causing this error when exporting to PDF from Pages. I copied the text out of the box, recreated the box and pasted the text back in and removed the long dashes by retyping them.

    Something about Unicode characters that Acrobat 7 doesn't like.

    see this link for someone else's finding

    The best way to troubleshoot a document like this is to duplicate it, then remove objects from the page one by one and see if the problem goes away.

    Good luck.
