InDesign 2.0

Print

When you press Command-P on the Mac, you'll immediately notice that InDesign's Print dialog box isn't the familiar dialog box you've encountered in Photoshop and Illustrator. On both Mac and Windows systems, InDesign's Print dialog box offers a list of panels—the first is the General panel (Figure 2-18)—that you can tab through to choose print options. On the Mac, Create Adobe PDF will be selected in the Printer pop-up list, and Acrobat Distiller will be selected in the PPD pop-up list. In Windows, Acrobat Distiller should appear in the Printer Name field. To check or change your job options or conversion settings, on the Mac click the Printer button at the bottom of the box and in Windows click the Properties button, then make your selections. Click Save or OK to return to the InDesign Print dialog box, and then click through the seven other panels: Setup, Marks & Bleeds, Output, Graphics, Color Management, Advanced, and Summary. Make the choices appropriate to your document, such as Composite CMYK in Output (Figure 2-19). The Graphics panel is where you specify PostScript options, such as generating PostScript Level 3 and choosing Binary as your data format (Figure 2-20). Notice that the preview in the lower-left corner of the dialog box updates to reflect your choices, and the printer style changes to Custom.
