Choosing a PDF style

You can choose from three preset PDF styles or create your own PDF style. The three preset styles are: PDF For Document Distribution, PDF For Prepress, and PDF For The WEB. The PDF For Document Distribution style is best used for general document delivery and can be printed on a laser or desktop printer. The PDF For Prepress style contains LZW bitmap compression, embeds fonts, and preserves spot color options best designed for high-end quality printing. If you choose the PDF For Prepress style, consult the service bureau for their preferred settings. The PDF For The WEB style contains JPEG bitmap compression, embeds fonts in a document, and compresses text. These are low-resolution settings best designed for the World Wide Web. The preset styles are general guidelines and can be edited or deleted. You can also create, edit, or delete custom PDF styles.
