    High Quality / Press Quality print

    jgb8705

      I've created a file in inDesign, exported it using High Quality print (PDF presets) and my Canon ImagePRESS (dropped the .pdf in Creo) is taking forever and a day to print. Should I use the Press Quality option? There are a lot of images and transparency is used a lot as well. But, its never taken this long... I'm printing a book of about 8 pages, it may take 5-7 minutes per book.

       

      Please help!

          Hi Justin, setting printing otion for Press quality might help speed up printing - there is an active feature for transparency flattening which are not in High quality prind mode active. And it depends on you wheter you will keep image default compressions or you will set your own for deducing file size and printing time.

            You might try flattening the transparency and see if that helps. The PDF/X-1a preset does that or you can set the Compatability to Acrobat 4. In that case you can choose a transparency flattener preset:
