Times Bold Apostophe replaced in PDF

Sorry about the vagueness. I am asking which checks and fixes are specific to getting pdfs into quark and getting a decent pdf out the other side.

Layered PDF

Does any one know of a way of producing a layered pdf. Specifically i would like to put a cutter on a separate layer to the artwork. In quark I can get the cutter as a page by itself or sat on top of the artwork page.
