  • Help! Can't print to PDF in InDesign CS3

    Using Adobe CS3 - InDesign

    Help! I have a magazine design layout that I need to output to PDF and the PDF option is no longer available or showing up in my Print dialog box.

    I've outputted to PDF before using the same program. The option was always there. Now all I see is a PostScript File option and my home printers.

    Grrr!

    Please help!

    Just use EXPORT under the file menu.

        Lol!

        One solution might be that you don't have Acrobat Pro installed? That usually adds Adobe PDF as a printer option. You should switch to a Mac. You have a PDF option right out of the box. =)

          Sometimes its a little button in the print dialog box down on the lower left that says PDF. It usually looks grayed-out but isn't really.

            I often do much the same thing. I'll even do it that way when sending files to printers -- just so that at a glance the printer can tell what colors are involved. The only problem I've found has nothing...

            Thanks for the feedback Buda; I'm using wordpress and I have a very fast connection at home. I stupidly thought wordpress was automatically compressing the images when uploaded. For the moment it is mostly...

            If you followed the other suggestion to look for banding and get a proof, then yes it is fine if you have also fixed the knob.

            No display is fine. The shot is too close to the background without any additional outlining back lighting.

            Front cover, I am going to say that the model choice is all wrong. Was that your doing? If it was reconsider using a more attractive guy even if you want rugged. Men are the same as women and want to...
