  • Sideways PDF'ing

    Has anyone ever had a problem with Quark documents PDF'ing sideways? I can't figure out how to fix it, but about half the time, my Quark files will PDF sideways. Any suggestions?

    Let me ask you; Do you "Save as" or print it (adobe pdf) as a pdf?

    I would check your Portrait/Landscape setting. If it cuts off 1/2 of your work, its the orientation, if its rotated, just rotate it back in Adobe Acrobat (if you have it).

      Ok, I "export layout as PDF," does that help at all? It doesn't cut off any of my work at all, it just rotates it 90 degrees. I can rotate it back in Acrobat just fine, but it won't save it like that. I'm sending it to someone to post on a website, and they need it the right way. It really doesn't make much sense to me.

        Dont worry about it rotating. It does that to me with AutoCAD drawing files. It still prints fine. I noticed that too with the rotating. even if you saveas over the origional, it doesnt save. Not really sure how to fix this part.

          Quark has been doing this to me with certain files too - I'm doing the same thing mcmurray is. I've played with settings, created new files, etc - and it is still sideways - or even upside down! And too - no Acrobat won't save it right side up. It's very odd.

          But - if I export as an eps and then distill it, no problems there.
          it's deadline and I'm GROUCHY.

            Ok, so I'm exporting as an eps, but it will only let me do one page at a time, the document is 16 pages, and we want it all on 1 pdf. Any suggestions?

                  well anytime I saw that over the last 24 hours...my immediate reaction was a comment I heard from some movie.

                  "Pancake me sideways"

                  I think it was an american pie movie.

                    This is because you are rotating the "view" of the page instead of the rotating the "page".

                    Use the Document Menu > Pages > Rotate to save the rotation.

                          If I print using the adobe pdf writer, to save it as a PDF I know I am in control with the quality output. I can set it at a high quality. I just figured it gave me more control, than just "saving as". Not really sure if you have control over both.

                            I understand what you are saying. I just think i might be a monomaniac. I have no interest in building in other forms of graphic design. I will probably have a bad time....

                            Hi, I'm very new to design and just starting out, so I'd appreciate some critique/advice/guidance on some book covers I made for a friend, and how I can improve as a designer.

                            Well, for one thing, logo design is a terrible entry point for a new designer trying to find clients and establish themselves. There are excellent designers with years of experience who avoid logo design...

                            I do not have a degree in Graphic Design. My goal is to work freelance.
                            This is what I am scared of since the country I live in does not respect design that much. You can rarely make a living out...
