Chapter 44. Exporting EPS and PDF > An Alternative to Exporting

An Alternative to Exporting

Note that you can still use Acrobat Distiller to create PDF files from InDesign. The two-step approach of printing a PostScript file to disk and then having the print-to-disk file processed by Distiller is more time consuming, but sometimes worthwhile. When creating very small PDF files is our highest priority we use Acrobat Distiller—just as we would from QuarkXPress or PageMaker—because InDesign’s Export feature almost always makes larger PDF files than a comparable quality PDF file created through Distiller. Also, some PDF files exported PDF files won’t print on some printers (primarily older, non-Adobe PostScript emulators, or “clones”). In these cases, we also use the Distiller to create the PDF files.
