# [OS X TeX] zapf dingbats

Don, Michael,

Here is a simple document that produces the problem.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[
web=designiv,
exerquiz
]{aeb_pro}
\begin{document}
Hello.
\end{document}

I am using Donald Story's acrotex and acrotex pro packages:

acrotex_pack.zip

aebpro_pack.zip

When I latex and dvips, then drop the ps file on Distiller, I get this error:
