PostScript error Dictstackunderflow

A  PostScript error ‘dictstackunderflow’ offending command ‘something’ is caused by an incorrect PostScript file that is send to the RIP. Dictstackunderflow errors mean that there are too many ‘end’s in the PostScript file: each end command must have a corresponding begin command.


Look at the offending command and search its corresponding page on this site. That page may contain a work-around or solution.

With this type of proble you should always check whether a newer version of your application is available.

Since some programs (essentially non-prepress applications) rely on the PostScript driver installed on your system to create the PostScript code that is send to the RIP, you can also try to use another driver to print your file.
