PDF has lines through the art

Post by Mick McArt » 21 Mar 2011, 09:34

I'm using Quark 8.5 and when I export to pdf, especially when trying to export so it is PDF/X-1a:2001 compliant. I am using a new iMac. If I have an image floating over a box, the box will come through on the pdf.

PDF/X-1a:2001 will force flattening to kick in. If the flattening isn't perfect the stitching lines may print. I'd forget the PDF/X-1a:2001 from quark and use Native transparency then use PDF Optimser in Acrobat Pro to apply the PDF/X-1a:2001.
