A PDF of a PDF - cause poor print results?

Hi Glenn, I can't remember what it was set to, but I do remember that I could print it to our laser printer and it was ok, my colleague could not print it correctly to the same printer using the same print settings and version of Acrobat. In the end the customer was asked not to convert to outlines ...

A PDF of a PDF - cause poor print results?

We recently had a pdf that had a lot of text that was created with outlines in LaTEX and it looked ok on screen but when it went through our Apogee rip the text was rough. ie all the rounded edges had been straightened, a Zero looked more like an octagon. If there is only a little etxt then you are ...

A PDF of a PDF - cause poor print results?

I would disagree about converting text to outlines as some rips can't handle all the extra postscript information and you can get rough looking text. A lot of the problems we have had when bringing in PDF's is that most that go wrong contain OPI in them and when that is removed the images etc go wro...

A PDF of a PDF - cause poor print results?

If the printed image is pale then it sounds like the original pdf could have been in RGB instead of CMYK or it could be that they do not have a very good press where it was printed. I agree with eyoungren that Quark handles EPS files better and we also create eps files from the pdfs rather than usin...

Printing PMS 125 in Quark to Xerox Phaser 7750DN is horrible

It might be that the colours used have different alternate colour spaces. If you use an eps from illustrator 8 it has a different cmyk make up compared to Illustrator CS2 as Pantone have gradually changed the pantone library over the years. I have had a pdf file created from quark with different eps...

Unable to create the "filename.pdf" file

You need to have a postscript printer selected as default before you try to create a pdf. You can have as many inkjet printers set up as long as you have one postscript/laser printer set up.

Image quality

You should convert all rgb files to cmyk before you bring them into quark unless you are creating web pages.

AFP Vs SMB servers

I've just done a test between the two and SMB is much faster. As already said, icons etc are gone in SMB but if you copy the files via a Mac from te AFP connected server to the SMB connected server then all the icons stay as they were on AFP.
