I have a client who still requires print pdfs created with the postscript/distiller method. I used to be able to do that from within the InDesign CS4 print dialog box by choosing Postscript File as the printer and Acrobat 7 (or 8 or 9) as the PPD. That would produce a ps file that when distilled produced a pdf at the page size of the document. I have now upgraded to CS5.5 (though I still use 4) and also upgraded from Leopard to Snow Leopard. When I go to print to Postscript in either ID CS4 or CS5.5, the only PPDs I can get are Device Indepent and a gazillion ones for commercial printers from Brother to Samsung to Apple Laserwriter. When I print to ps using the Device Independent PPD, I get a page size of 8.5 x 11, regardless of what the actual page size is.How can I get my Acrobat PPDs back, and if I can find them where do I put them so as to be accessible with ID print dialog?
Just export as PDF X/1-a. They’ll never know the difference.
Thanks for you replies.
