They look "dull" only because you compare a luminous color with an ink. When you look at magazines and find the colors very bright, they're still in CMYK-only most of the time. Usually designers who prepared these layouts didn't do anything special besides using the right CMYK values! To use your terms, yes you are "doomed". But the way you compare the 2 ...

If Jenna's solution isn't sufficient for you, you could try and flatten your .pdf. The easiest way to do this is to export each page as a hi-res .jpg, and re-exporting those as a new .pdf. The .pdf reader won't recognise any object as an object anymore, since all are now pixels in a bitmap. No selection of text or images possible.

"You can't export PDF with animated GIF. And you can't export PDF with a video where the controllers are hidden and the video loops itself automatically." Unfortunately I haven't test the Indesign interactive PDF but you could have a look at exporting in ePub. Another option is to create your PDF as you normally do and add your videos directly in ...

The "pixel" unity in SVG (or CSS) files is for reference only. Your image is never using actual pixels - they do not exist in vector formats such as SVG (the internal representation of Inkscape) or PDF files. (Check the pixel defintion in CSS here) So, if you want your resulting image to be 210x297mm in size (A4), set this size in your document ...

Grouping both objects into the same button (even if the grouped version is only visible during the Rollover State) turns the total area of both objects and the space between them into the Rollover Area. To avoid this, create two separate buttons, and have one button "control" the other: Turn the rectangle pop-up into its own button called Rectangle, and ...

You can change the name of the pages in Adobe Acrobat Pro and use custom words instead of numbers only. You can also rename and adjust all the sections' page name independently if you want. In Acrobat Pro, open your preference panels and go in the "Page Display" options. Check the box "Use Logical page Numbers" Then save this, and go right-click on ...

Thanks a lot to everyone who tried to find solution of my problem. Special thanks to @13ruce advice I found very nice and simple solution. I use PDF Toolkit server and its feature of combining two files into the third one. The general PDFTK string is: pdftk K=black.pdf C=color.pdf cat K1-2 C3 C4 C5 C6 C7 C8 C9 C10 K11 K12 output out.pdf In this example ...

1. Color Swatches If it was my project, I would update my color swatches to grayscale and the style will be updated as well. Or vice versa. Of course, it's something easier to do if you plan from the start that you'll use 2 versions; this way you add color swatches for your grayscale 60% and name them this way, and then replace that recipe with the color ...

"Saving as editable PDF" in Illustrator means that Illustrator embeds the ai file when it creates the PDF, so that it can reuse it. This does, of course, bloat the PDF… and it requires Illustrator for editing. Acrobat does not have the capability to edit vector graphics; it does need a helper for that (such as Illustrator). Acrobat DC is quite good with ...

if your client doesn't have Acrobat Pro version (only Acrobat Reader) then they won't be able to edit it--there are some free PDF editors available for download (but I have never used one since I have Pro) and IF your client doesn't have the used fonts loaded on their machine, they will have problems with text reflow possibly--FYI the intent of an editable ...

You can avoid this problem by using Advanced Crop Marks script. It is free InDesign script that makes creating crop and registration marks very comfortable and intuitive, based on chosen parameters, see the following picture. It can be downloaded for example at the following link: http://www.scriptopedia.org/en/js-indesign/122-advancedcropmarks-en.html. ...

You can do this in Acrobat Pro. You can do this manually trough the GUI but it might get involved so you can just type this in the JavaScript console Open the document you want to manipulate. Open the JavaScript console, you can find it in the debugger. In console type: this.insertPages({ nPage: 4 ,cPath:"x:\\path\\color.pdf", nStart: 0}); ...

In CS5 there's no Automate -> PDF Presentation OS-X users can use Finder : 1) in Finder multi-select the .PSD files (use Option-click or Shift-click) 2) "Open with…" and select "Preview.app" Now they will all open in one Preview window. 3) "Print…" and select "PDF" as output, which will put them all in one .PDF file

I don't think there is a way for InDesign to manage this task unless you break each section into its own file and assemble it as an InDesign book (maybe?). That's probably more of a hassle than you want to deal with. However, PDFTK (PDF Toolkit) is a free tool that has (among other things) a combine function that will allow you to accomplish this via ...

In general, I've found that opening the exported InDesign PDF with Acrobat and then resaving using Reduce File size . . . in Acrobat results in smaller files without any significant loss of quality (for proofing). I use a custom Job Option when exporting from InDesign for proofs. The custom Job Option is slightly better than the "Smallest file" option -- ...

This is unfortunately something Inkscape cannot do. It sounds like what you're asking for is to have the image to have two difference sizes at once. Inkscape doesn't allow you to set the DPI of a PDF during export (the setting in the export window is the DPI for rasterizing filter effects, not the artwork itself), so you're stuck at 90 DPI. The solution I ...

I do not think that is possible and if it is, most non tech oriented people will have difficulties updating it, even if it is via PDF. I have never seen such feature in a PDF. However there are online platforms such as https://readymag.com that will allow you to create a template, where people will be able to swap out the images and export it as PDF. If that ...

As suggested in Vincent's answer, the easiest is to convert your PDF to images and I want to post another method that is very quick to do it. You could also lock the editing capabilities of your PDF but the rectangles around your images will still appear when selected. Quick way to flatten or convert an entire PDF into images 1) Do your PDF a you ...

You want to make sure that you are making a read only document. You can use Acrobat to do this. Go to the security tab under file and it allows you to alter who can make amendments/if a user can fill in a form/ad comments etc. This should solve your problem! :)

Ajar Productions has a script called Merge Text that does mostly what you want, except it turns the text into a big point text. You may need to adjust spacing after this tough as the script toolset is a bit simplistic. Illustrator Praxis has a set of text tools that can do this with a little more work. For one they have a script to turn point texts into ...

Most likely it is also a low quality file, when you copy it into PS. It is correct that it is due to the compression, sometimes LZW compression. If you have a PDF file of unknown origin and are trying to edit one of the pictures in it, in Acrobat Professional you can go to Export, image, then PNG. This removes all problematic compressions, and you should be ...
