In Acrobat 11 it would appear the Advanced Options panel is removed. To access the PDF Optimizer go to File -> Save As Other... -> Optimzed PDF..: Documentation for Adobe: Save using PDF Optimizer

One possibility could be inserting according values to the metadata of the resulting PDF. There are entries for metadata in the joboptions file. However, an almost 4 years old entry in the Adobe forums did not trigger any answers; you'd have to try things out, after getting familiar with the joboptions syntax. You may also have to be aware that joboptions ...

Unchecking "Preserve Photoshop Editing Capabilities" is absolutely the solution here. Took my PDF from 23mb to 870kb!

The two most likely possibilities have been mentioned. If it must be done in InDesign, the button approach would be the most likely, although making the button field read-only would improve things even more, because then the user would not be tempted to click it (because the cursor won't change when viewing the document). Using a sticky note has its ...

The way I would approach this is to use Sticky Notes. I find the question mark icon is pretty intuitive to users and has the added benefit of not crowding up the document when not in use. Details on sticky notes: http://acrobat.solutions.adobe.com/content/areaderx_ipm1_en Creating a form element and making it not print is possible by double clicking on the ...

Create a text frame and type the instructions as usual, then convert it to a Button. In the Button panel popup menu, select "Visible in PDF but Doesn't Print". This will create a button, and so it is 'clickable', but as long as you don't attach an action to it as well, nothing will happen. Make sure not to overlap it with content that should be clickable, ...

For an optimum screen-viewable PDF, don't export as a Print PDF. Choose Interactive PDF instead, and ensure that your Jpeg Quality is set to Maximum @ 144 ppi (a good compromise between low and high resolution monitors). As a note, also verify that your .indd is using RGB, not CMYK, and the transparency blend space (under the Edit menu) is set to RGB. ...

It sounds like you have to alter your PDF export settings to something more highres / less compression. Try starting with [Smallest Filesize] and turn off downsampling and compression.


1

Have a look here. Smallest File Size Creates PDF files for displaying on the web, an intranet, or for email distribution. This set of options uses compression, downsampling, and a relatively low image resolution. It converts all colors to sRGB and embeds fonts. It also optimizes files for byte serving. For best results, avoid using this preset if you ...

It's because you are maintaing photoshop options while saving. Un-tick preserve Photoshop editing capabilities and also all of those in the options.

If you are sending the PDF to a print service provider, it's always best to check with them to find what format they prefer. That said, PDF-X/1a is the safest PDF format for general-purpose printing, and you are unlikely to come across a print shop that can't use it. If your booklet includes bleed, you must turn that on in the PDF dialog (under "Marks and ...

For most commercial printing you should simply export to PDF/X-1a format as single pages with marks and bleeds. If you are uncertain of PDF configuration for your print provider, you need to ask your provider how they want PDFs configured.

Yes. Of course it depends on what you are using to combine PDFs. In Acrobat choose File > Properties and then select the Initial view tab. Set it how you want things to open and save. By default, PDFs are generally generated with the magnification set to "Fit to page" So the view is zoomed to allow the page to fit on the entire screen - that means ...

The solution to this issue of poor quality pdf work samples on my LinkedIn profile page, was to set up a Behance portfolio with the same images and then (from the LinkedIn profile page) import the Behance project links. Working in this way, the quality of the images is fine.

First you gotta make sure, that you at least have the Adobe PDF 1.4 (Acrobat 5.0) Standard. Lower than that won't support transparency. Otherwise export a PDF/X-1a Standard. This will flatten your Images before Export. REMEMBER that if you flatten your Images and safe the File, you can't change it back!!! Also you can edit your Flattening-Options in the ...
