Chapter 99. Creating PDF Files > Customizing PDF Export

Customizing PDF Export

XPress has an Export as PDF dialog box (if you use the PDF Filter XTension) which lets you add comments to the PDF file, such as name, keywords, and author information. Similarly, if you type document name and author information into the File Info dialog box (under the File menu), InDesign saves this information in the exported PDF file. InDesign does offer a number of other PDF-specific options that XPress does not. You can select from among the first five of the six panels listed along the left side of the PDF Export dialog box to customize how the PDF is created. Note that you can choose these panels by clicking on them; by holding down the Command/Ctrl key while pressing a number, 1 through 6; or by pressing Command/Ctrl-Page Up or Page Down.

While we cover some of the many PDF options here, Christopher’s Teach Yourself Adobe Acrobat book has several chapters devoted to settings used when creating PDF files, and David’s Real World InDesign 2 goes into more depth, especially for the more picayune choices.
