Trim marks with Distiller

Jun 3, 2008 8:23 AM

Hi,
I've just ordered Distiller for Solaris Unix for our publishing system. We've been using a 10-year old version for years. The question I have would pertain to the Windows version of Distiller I have as well. I just want to know if there's any way in Distiller to add trim marks to the generated PDFs. I know it's available in Acrobat itself, but, isn't there a way to make finished, print-ready PDFs in Distiller without having to open them up in Acrobat?

Thanks,
Peter

    No, Distiller (Server) just takes the input and produces the same
    thing as output. It has no PDF editing tools.

    I'd say trim marks would typically be added as part of output or
    imposition, not as part of document preparation. Your workflow may
    vary, however.

    >But, that implies some third party software for output, doesn't it?

    What do you use now? Acrobat can add trim marks on output.

    How to use Adobe Postscript fonts with Distiller Server for UNIX on a Solaris 10 system?

    We plan to use DS for UNIX to distill PS files from PC/Windows and Mactintosh and not sure if there will be any issues with fonts if the fonts are not included(embeded) in each of the PS files. Can we install all PC or Mac fonts on Solaris for DS to use?

    Thanks
