Your problem probably lies with the fact that Corel Draw only allows CMYK formats and InDesign uses both RGB and CMYK. When you export a file in a CMYK format and view it on a screen which is essentially an RGB screen everything looks dull or washed out. If you're exporting the PDF to print, you shouldn't worry about the colors you see there, but if ...

[How] can I be sure that this PDF generated from InDesign will print to paper as it is shown on screen in PDF ? You can't. There at least a dozen variables in the path from screen to press. You can not control all of them and it's entirely possible ones you can control are incorrect. You have to calibrate everything - monitors, scanners - use proper ...

another thing to take into consideration is that when you have a pdf exported to single pages most(adobe reader) pdf viewers supports "spread-view" and you can, while exporting interactive pdf set the default view.

Books for electronic devices are typically sold with reflowable text. I suggest you look into how to build an ePub. I suggest this because your are not allowed to sell or offer PDF format on iBooks Since you have mentioned possible building for android I would advise reflowable and not fixed. Fixed layout ebooks are developed based on the devices ...

You need to: start w/ a .pdf which has the characters encoded using Unicode (check document properties) have the font in InDesign set to one which has those characters at the same Unicode slots Then it'll ``just work''.

The industrial strength solution for such an application would be preparing a Button form field with just icon, no interactivity, no action etc. Then you would use a product like FDFMerge by Appligent to merge the base document with the logo image, and set the flattening option. There are also libraries providing server-side filling of images, such as ...

This is a bit technical answer based of my understanding PDF format [1], and experience with hand crafting my own PDF files. PDF as a format is designed to be self contained. That is PDF lives under that assumption that you can craft a PDF file with your existing processes. The Predecessor of PDF, PostScript, however has these functions. PDF is in many ...

You can do this with GhostScript from a commandline/batchfile like this: gswin64c -q -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -dBATCH ^ -dNOPAUSE -sOutputFile=out.pdf ^ -c "<< /BeginPage { 2 mod 1 eq {-50 0 translate} {} ifelse } bind >> setpagedevice"^ -f in2.pdf Adjust the -50 to be as many points (1 ps point is 72th part of an inch) you want to shift the ...

There are a few places to look at. You might look at the print dialog provided by the printer driver (just ignore the message from Acrobat/Reader that you are leaving the print dialog), and see what options you have. If that does not lead to the desired results, you could crop the pages (requiring Acrobat); you can crop even and odd pages. With the pages ...

When a PDF is generated artwork can be adjusted, expanded, and/or flattened to accommodate the PDF job options. In many cases, raster images get divided into sections based upon how they interact with other objects on page. This can also happen with vector content if there are transparency interactions within the objects. For example, if you lay one vector ...

Set your bleed settings to zero and make sure you have all printers marks turned off. The easiest way to do this is to choose the [High Quality Print] Preset in the PDF dialog box as a starting point. For most outputs that are not going to be commercially printed this preset should suffice anyway.

The default export to PDF is single pages. What you're calling pages are correctly termed "spreads," because they actually consist of multiple pages placed side by side. Most long documents appear in InDesign as a single first page (the cover), two-page spreads (the left and right pages as the reader would see them when printed) and a single page at the end ...
