    Creating a printable pdf newsletter..

    Level 7
      Hi All

      i want to create a pdf news letter that can be viewed and also printed.

      i will include images (low res) logos (vectors) and text.

      as i am used to working online, i need a little help with getting started...

      can i create this in FW and then print it as a PDF?

      is there a better Adobe product to use, i have the web premium suite - if so
      which.

      anything to watch out for, any tips, suggestions on fonts to avoid / uses
      ect.

      i have googled this but i havent yet found a good resource so if you know
      of one please post the URL.

      Thanks for any help
      as ever
      keen to learn..

          PDF files are not the best solution for viewing information online. That
          said, if you have the Adobe CS3 Web Premium Suite, you have Acrobat 8
          Professional as well. You can create your document directly in Acrobat 8
          and import your Fireworks graphics, or you can create it in MS Word, MS
          Publisher, In Design, PageMaker, etc., in short in any layout or word
          processing program you like. To convert your document to PDF, just
          select it as your printer. I don't recommend using Fireworks because
          it's simply isn't meant for creating long text documents. It's an image
          editor, not a text editor.

            InDesign, likely.

            Barring that, probably Illustrator.

                Just create it as you would any regular text document.
