How can I save a pdf with overprint preview showing? I need to show my client exactly how the printed product will look. How can I acheive this in a pdf format? I have Illustator CS5.1 & CS6.
I would like to be able to save it out as pdf without altering anything. I need the overprints/appearances to remain. In acrobat Pro I can select preferences>page view> overprint "always". But can't find it in Acrobat reader.
That is a preference you need to turn on in Acorbat, set overptint preview: always. There is nto way to save taht in a .pdf, has to be turned on manully.
I have not found a way to put a script or action inside a .pdf so it will change that for you. You can make the first page of your .pdf an instruction page showing the screenshot on where to turn on overprint preview.
