why don't you placed the psd in Indesign and export the pdf from there?
Because when you export a PSD from InDesign the vector masks, text layers, and vector shapes are rasterised on export to PDF from InDesign.
It needs to be a photoshop PDF placed in InDesign, then the export to PDF leaves the vector masks, shapes and text as vectors.
What exactly are you asking about here, Eugene?
Photoshop file with layers
Save as PDF with layers
Place into InDesign and go to Object>Object Layer Options
And turn on and off PDF layers from InDesign.
According to the help files there should be a Rich Content PDF setting, but I cannot find it anywhere.
Where would you find this setting? In the layer options?
I'm not sure what the question is, Bob?
The Help file says it's in the Extras folder. It lists file paths. I find it on a Mac in this location:
Library > Application Support > Adobe > Adobe PDF > Extras
It says you need move it to the Settings folder
Library > Application Support > Adobe > Adobe PDF > Settings
I can do that.
However, when I export to PDF in InDesign CC 2015 or save as to Photoshop PDF in Photoshop CC 2015, the Rich Content PDF preset does not show up. It is apparently not supported in those applications.
I don't know of a way to do what you want to do. But someone may have found a workaround.
It's ok - I have the job done now. I thought it would be intuitive to allow photoshop layers to be turned on and off in InDesign, but the files simply don't allow it.
I save to individual PDF files with the layers on and off for each particular and placed them individually.
