More error information when exporting to PDF
Problem Description: There are some times when exporting to a PDF, the dialogue box will show there is an error which results in no PDF being created. That is all the information we get and therefore have to guess what the problem is. Some more information would be useful.
When exporting an interactive PDF, I noticed that you get far more information when the PDF is being created.
If we had this information added to the Background Tasks when exporting a normal PDF, it would give us a clue what page is causing the problem.
I've attached a screenshot to show what I mean (the screenshot was taken when exporting an interactive PDF)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Choose File > Export or Adobe PDF presets
2. When PDF is making, alt+click on the Background Tasks
3. If there is an error, it will show with a yellow triangle - click on that triangle
4. The alert window will show 'PDF Failed to Export'
Actual Result: You just get told the PDF didn't work
Expected Result: I would prefer some sort of progress text, such as Exporting pages, 1, 2, 3, etc so that when the error message comes up, I at least have some idea what page is causing the problem. You used to get this in Quark Xpress so I would appreciate this information in InDesign.
Any Workarounds: Just export a series of pages at a time until the PDF comes up with an error.
