PDF/X Use this PDF/X preset when you want to maintain . You can download joboptions and ID CS2 PDF presets from their site. Installing the Adobe Acrobat or PDF Job Options File Distiller, and many other Adobe applications use preset job options files to quickly create PDF files. Set the Adobe PDF Preset to PDF/X and check Pages (not Spreads). Under Marks and Bleeds check Crop Marks and Page Information.

Hi, does anyone has the joboptions for pdf/x specs for but on my indesign I stiil ahve the joboptions (in the default preset). thnks. The pdf/x-4 overview - what it is, how to create compliant files and how to process the Early PDF/X-4 became an official ISO standard: ISO Guideline · Adobe CS/CC PDF/X-1a · Adobe CS/CC PDF/X-4 CMYK · Adobe CS/ CC PDF/X-4 RGB · Adobe CS/CC PDF/X-4 Digital · Output Test.
Michael Guest. Smallest File Size: If the problem persists, please contact Adobe Technical Support. This method works exactly the same way whether you are using a Mac or a Windows PC. Isn't it designed to help prevent errors? I have a newbie question: Acrobat 6 compatibility is the default, which allows for transparency and the use of Acrobat layers.
The use of transparency is allowed. Image data can be 8-bit or bit.
The use of layers is allowed. Meanwhile callas pdfToolbox is the first PDF tool that has proper support for them. All fonts must be embedded in the file. Embedding OpenType fonts is allowed.
Encryption cannot be used. Transfer curves cannot be used.
If the file is to be printed with bleed, a BleedBox must be defined. The file needs to contain an output intent which describes the intended printing condition.
The output intent is either: ISO There have been some complaints about the way fonts and colors are defined in the specifications.
That is why a minor update of the specs is expected to be released in This is a standard that originated in the USA but is also popular in Europe.
This standard was developed in Germany and Switzerland. Its use also seems to be largely restricted to those countries.

I already know about the basics to get the maximum quality for a print layout. My pictures are all done in Photoshop and flattened eps My vectors are from Illustrator without any transparency or blending modes.
Texts are vectorized eps Everything is imported in an InDesign or QuarkXpress file, again without using any shadow or transparency in these two programs. I'd like an answer a bit more concrete than just "because it's better.
I hope this helps you That is: There is a smaller likelihood that something will go wrong. That's it.
Like PDF postscript can contain all kinds of things. In this case the color engine most likely is not optimal. You can send PostScript files direct to a device, but it's not any more efficient than sending a proper PDF.
IanRingrose i dindt invent the standard, purpose of the standard is to avoid making the printer not the machine the factory that makes you know prints do any decisions locally. The problem is that the printer may still rasterize lower than it could output to save time.
So by doing it yourself your setting the lower limit of quality. Again the aim is not to make archivial quality but rather avoid surprises. All fonts must be embedded, this ensures there are no font issues.
Embedded images with individual ICC profiles are not permitted. One profile is used for the entire document. This ensures color remains consistent throughout the PDF. This ensures proper sizes during production. This prevents undue compression or the existence of incorrect images. Scott Scott k 14 There is no "standard" job option that I'm aware of, but there are job options which adhere to PDF Standards.
That was my point. I read that google page too saying the exact same "there is no such thing as No need to expand on this one and add 3 question marks as if it totally didn't make sense ; Edit: Ok it's not between quotes in the title but please don't make me format the question 10 times!
Different features and all. Besides what standard 1. It is never a good idea to outline text, as you loose hinting and in InDesign you loose automatic numbers, bullets, rulers, text frames, references and many more problems. The only correct solution is to embed fonts. If a font distributer does not allow embedding normally he does neither allow outlining for print purposes. The only correct solution is to use a font which allows embedding.
It is not even installed twice on the same computer. Therefore for more flexibility you will use RGB images only for print in InDesign as it allows you to use the same file for different print conditions and even for cross publishing for print or for screen.
Any conversion causes a loss of information. Many digital printer require input in form of RGB. The LAB is an intermediate conversion which will always take place. If you remain in RGB you have this: Less loss. When it comes to transparency the flattening should be done as late as possible. With the flattening comes always a slicing of images and also a conversion to a different color or colorspace.
You see those slicing lines in Acrobat only, if you turn on antialiasing for vectors in Acrobat's preferences. BUT, but but but, even if they are normally not seen in print output, there are a lot of cases you will see them: If you convert a file to a different file type and color space in the same step, as it happens, when you have to export such a file, e.
You will see those slices!
When it comes to color management, EPS does not support color management. Don't use EPS, don't use Distiller. Some user might need to turn on and off different layers of a PDF when they place them in InDesign, maybe different language versions.
