Did a quick search but didn't find anything related.
Whenever I create a large PDF in CS5.5 such as a magazine publication, there's no progress bar and have no idea what's going on. I've upgraded from CS3 and remember seeing a progress bar in CS3. Any way to activate a progress bar or some indication of progress when creating PDFs in CS5.5? I've looked through all PDF settings and unless I'm missing something, can't find anything. BTW, I'm on a PC.
With CS5 and 5.5, creating PDF is turned into a background task. But you can see the creation progress by opening the Background Tasks panel. Choose Window > Utilities > Background Tasks.
Thanks, Steve. That should do it.
