      Hi,

       

      I have a challenge & really hope you can help.

       

      The production company I’m sending files to has requested the following:


      pdf - all vector / text outlined. I have found out (from David’s article) that this can be efficiently achieved by using the transparency flattener preset.


       

      However, I also assume I need to provide the pdf as a layered file so that the factory as the PRINT, FOIL and DIE-CUT layers are all on top of each other. (I would usually call the printer to chat about which presets are needed, however, in this case, the factory is in France & there doesn’t seem to be anyone who speaks english.)

      For this I need to use ‘standard: pdf/x 4 2010. However, when I opt for this, the 'acrobat 4’ option (which is required in order to use the transparency flattener) is no longer available.

      So, I can’t seem to have pdf layers AND outlines vectors.

       

      Please help!

       

      Thanks so much,
