Alright, I found a solution. It seems that the problem comes from Automate-PDF Presentation... When I use this tool to create my pdf, the shapes are deformed. But if I export every pages separately in PDF format using Save As... there is no problem. Then to merge all the pages I use an online webservice. I agree that this is not really an explanation but ...

I found a workaround for the malfunction: before exporting to PDF, create a new layer mask for layers that have transparencies - when creating the mask, pick the option "Transfer Layer's Alpha Channel". The layer should look the same. Then, export the image as PDF and check the "Apply layer masks before saving". The transparency specified in the layer mask ...

Your PDF needs to be linked - you cannot copy and paste it into your ID document. Go to the "links" panel and make sure that the PDF resides on your computer/network, and you are linked to it. PDFs that are "unlinked" will be blurry.

If you prefer, you can embed the entire font by changing the percentage in your PDF settings. Then it will just embed the whole thing once. Otherwise subsetting is the embedding of just the letters of the font that you are using in the document to make your document even smaller. It usually causes trouble only if you want to join documents together which ...

When you print on a 11x17, you don't really need to place all the crop marks and the 2up centered in the 11x17... The crop marks you're trying to use are the ones that will appear on the 4 corners of the "printed area". What you're trying to do is to apply them to the 4 corners of your 11x17. Let's suppose you have a document of 10x7, and you want it 2up, ...

You can't get vector from a PDF with Photoshop. Photoshop rasterizes everything when you open a PDF. That is unless the PDF was created by Photoshop with Preserve Photoshop Editing Capabilities on. In my experience, those type of PDFs are rare. But it can happen. If you do have one of those PDFs, just opening it with Photoshop will show the layers... ...

Preview.app uses Appleā€™s font rendering system. This can be slightly adjusted in Preferences.app, but it is simply going to render differently than in an Adobe product. If the on-screen appearance of your type is really important, you should probably get a font which is optimized for use on screens.

(Reposting my answer from this thread.) Setting Compatibility: Acrobat 4 (PDF 1.3) in the Save Adobe PDF dialog in Illustrator solves the issue (checked with Illustrator 17): In the resulting PDF file the transparency will be flattened without rasterization.

Alternatively, there's a few entries in PDF fixups (Production/Preflight) to Remove Layers; the best for your question is this: View > Tools > Print Production (Open) Hit Preflight Under the Profiles tab (top left), hit the little spanner/wrench icon in the top row. Double click [Remove layer with specified name] You'll be prompted for the name of the ...

Show your Layers control (on a mac: View>Show/Hide>Navigation Panes>Layers) Turn off the layers you don't want, then hit the Options drop down list above the Layers list, and choose Flatten Layers.

Inkscape (v.0.91) supports command-line options, and that is how I prefer to do it: inkscape --file=mySVGinputFile.svg --export-area-drawing --without-gui --export-pdf=output.pdf This is actually the command that LyX uses to prepare SVG images for use in LaTeX. I have used PlantUML to generate SVG, which then goes into PDF. Here's a screenshot of the SVG ...

As soon as you select 'Export as' option in the file menu, you are directed to a dialog box where you specify the name of the file. When you click export you get an option dialog box. Select the Convert bitmaps to vector graphics where possible in export dialog box. Resulting PDF won't have a fringe.

One possible work-around might be to use 1 large text box that contains all your text.
