Chapter 45. Using Distiller > CREATING AND LOADING .JOBOPTIONS

CREATING AND LOADING .JOBOPTIONS

If the Distiller settings dialog looks familiar to you, it is because it's the same panel you see when customizing settings in the Adobe PDF printer driver. Distiller uses the Adobe PDF engine to generate PDF files and, as you saw in the previous chapter, you can choose from many presets that fit most common output targets. At any time, you can select an existing setting, make whatever changes necessary to it, and save it as a custom setting.

Custom settings can be saved for future use and loaded using the Distiller Default Settings pop-up menu at the top of the screen. These settings are saved as .joboptions files in a default location: \Documents and Settings\All Users\Shared Documents\Adobe PDF 7.0\Settings (for Windows) or Library/Application Support/Adobe/PDF/Settings (for Mac). Settings saved after you choose Print, Adobe PDF can be used in Distiller and vice versa. You can also send these settings to your peers or load settings sent to you.
