    PDF Fixups




      We have a current workflow where we produce Hi Res PDF's with crops and bleed for print purposes. We also need to create a low res pdf without crops and bleed (crop to trim) hopefully without having to go back into InDesign and re-producing the PDF.


      Can anyone tell me how to produce a FixUp to accommodate this.


      I know you can crop the document to the Trim Size from the 'Document' menu and selecting 'Crop Pages'.


      Is there anyway of incorporating this into a FixUp or Preflight profile along with reducing the file size and saving to an assigned folder different to the source folder?

          Hi Mark,


          Yes this is possible, you need to look into Batch Processing. See Advanced > Document Processing > Batch Processing... where you can create a custom sequence to crop, preflight save to source folder etc.

            Is there any way you put all of the batch processing and preflight into one Droplet that can sit on numerous desktops?


            Plus I have ran a batch process and it has converted all the original hi res files to low res as well as saving a copy to the output folder. Is there anyway of retaining the original file?
