PDF size comparison

Hi, I have 2 different ways of creating a pdf from Quark . . . 1. An applescript that converts to ps then passes to Distiller 2. Using Quark Server to generate the PDF with the "PS file for later Distilling" option. My tests are quiet unbelievable in that I use the same file for both processes BUT w...

Unable to render to pdf

Works OK on a single file if the source is a Quark 7.2 doc. Also, how do I batch process a folder of Quark docs to PDF using this method, but not typing into the url everytime. Can the Document Pool be set up as a hot folder? or is there a command like this ... that lets you select all files ... htt...

Unable to render to pdf

I've changed browser to Firefox and now get the following message . . .

Error #16 - This document cannot be opened by this version of QuarkXPress Server.

The source document is a Quark 7.3 document, shouldn't this work OK with 7.2.2 Server??

Missing ppd message override

Hi, Does anyone know if you can disable the missing ppd message when opening a Quark page where the ppd is missing from the system? I have an automated batch process to convert Quark files to postscript using Applescript but the script will stop if any files contains a missing ppd. Problem is I don'...

PDFs are wrong size using custom setting

Hi, I thought that the Adobe PDF printer would pick these up. That explains why some pages are scaling to A4 and some to A3, just the default standards. How do I set the page width and height in the script and if I need multiple sizes, can I apply them to the same script? Many thanks for your help.

PDFs are wrong size using custom setting

If I use the "set fit in area to true" command the pdf comes out at nearly twice the size it should, if I use the "set fit in area to false", the pdf ...

Splitting DPS into single Quark docs

I've tried this, but it only creates a 2 page Quark document, not 2 separate single page Quark documents.

Splitting DPS into single Quark docs

I have an applescript that will create postscript, then distill to pdf from Quark pages. The problem is that some pages are DPS's and I need to be able to split these into 2 separate files, not a multipage document, any ideas would be appreciated.
