Instead of using the file/export command, you can use file/save as. Choose Adobe pdf as the file format and then select the Artboard range you would like to combine: After hitting the Save button, you'll get the usual .pdf-Dialog where you can control the usual settings like bleed/trim etc.


The ICC profile you received from the print provider is for their equipment. You should not expect the ICC profile to render proper colors on your equipment. For accurate color from your printer, you need to calibrate the printer and create an ICC profile for your printer. If you want to ensure proper color from a print provider, ask them for a color proof. ...


Usually but not always it will affect print quality if a font is “missing” for any reason. If you are editing nothing it might make no difference but when you're "not editing the text layer" what exactly are you doing?


Yes It will use one of your fonts that is different than what was intended but did not get embedded. Now if you should have that exact font then it should render okay but you may have to do some things to link it to the file first.


Yes The missing font will not render properly upon output. When you output a Photoshop document for printing, the font data is read from the font file and included. Without that font data, you will get a "best guess" low resolution raster interpretation of the font. i.e. poor. Linking to a layered Photoshop document with InDesign is no different ...


I finally found the specifications for .joboptions files here: It turns out that in my case these options do not make a difference since I am working in CMYK anyway.


I fiddled with the preferences and found out that using the gpu performance will make the color look dull on Adobe Illustrator but vibrant on the preview on mac. Turning the GPU performance off should do the trick.


FYI, this works the same as Josh's method in Adobe Illustrator as well. Put the stuff you don't want to print on a separate layer in Illustrator, likely the bottom layer. If you save out a PDF in Adobe Illustrator, check off "Create Acrobat Layers from Top-Level Layers". Then follow Josh's method above for setting that layer NOT to print. Go to ...


Damn - thats so cumbersome! It also maybe faster/ cheaper to split file in few PNG files, export PDF and than merge PDF files (but maybe Acrobat is needed than). I am no pro, but looks like Adobe risk, that PS will be one day viewed as Premier among videographers - means: use rather Davinci.


I downloaded the PDF, opened in Illustrator CS6, printed to my monochrome laser printer (which has a Postscript level 3 RIP). -- Looks as expected. At the size you are trying to print, the detail is so small it merely gets plugged up. You're asking an end use printer to maintain a collection of hairlines below 0.25pts. In most instances, that is simply not ...


I downloaded, opened in Acrobat Pro DC (2020), and exported, and while it made a mess of table code, it did export everything just fine. I would guess that it is a problem with Acrobat 11. For a short-term fix, you can download a full working 30 day trial of the current version of Acrobat. I would post the code, it exported but it is too long. It crammed ...


When I open the PDF in Illustrator, I receive an error that says: An unknown imaging construct was encountered This suggests either some kind of file corruption, or perhaps there is some incompatible image format/data in there somewhere. Possibly stuff added by the scanning software? After clicking OK, the document does finally open, but on further ...


The scanner has used clever methods to squeeze the image storage needs to the minimum. There's for ex. a highly compressible extremely unsharp bitmap image which has right color just at the places of the dark brown lines. Inkscape revealed the parts. Then there's an opacity mask for it which has black (=make transparent) nearly everywhere except it makes ...
