Troubleshoot a problem further if you receive a non-specific PostScript error message, or if a PostScript error occurred without a message. To troubleshoot a PostScript error, isolate when the problem occurs to determine if it is a system-level, application-specific, file-specific, or element-specific problem. After you isolate when the problem occurs, you can eliminate likely causes until you solve the problem. Isolate system-level printing problems Do you receive the error from more than one application? If the same problem occurs from more than one application, the cause is most likely a problem at the system level.

Send your page without including the images to see whether images are causing the problem. Ungrouping objects can be very effective. Often groups and especially groups in groups or rotated groups of objects really make it tough to render PostScript.

Nesting files e. If you have a printer with a limited amount of memory you could try to reduce the number of fonts used in the document. If you are printing from Illustrator: if the document contains gradients, select Compatible Gradient Printing Illustrator 7.

If you are still using an old PostScript level 1 RIP, perform a font cache delete if you have the tools for this.

Reopen all imagefiles in Photoshop, save them as binary files and print again in XPress. The problem will be solved.

You could also keep the original images and redo the layout in XPress 3.

Try to find out if the limitcheck errors only occur with documents that share certain fonts. If this is the case, you should replace all those fonts with a fresh copy from the original disks.

Limitcheck errors due to insufficient memory On laser printers, the limitcheck error can also mean that there is not enough memory to do the page size and resolution requested. Double again for duplex double sided printing. Quadruple for color printers. This is just to hold the page; more will be needed at least 1 MB for fonts, paths, and other things.
