Dear All:
 Big problem. 
 My community newspaper is due to start publication a week on Friday. 
 I have sent previous Scribus-produced PDFs to my commercial printers before and he told me that they were to his specs and that they would print no problem. 
 Last week I uploaded all 16 PDF pages and today was meant to go and look at the printed proofs.
 He's now telling me that - while they can open the PDFs without any difficulties - when the try to place them on their RIP the processor won't read them.
 He's trying to figure out what the problem is. Any of you guys any thoughts? 
 Here are links to a colour PDF page:
