Lesson 6. Customizing Adobe PDF Output Quality > About the Adobe PDF Settings

About the Adobe PDF Settings

The Adobe PDF Settings—the settings that control the conversion of files to Adobe PDF—can be accessed and set from a number of different places. You can access the Adobe PDF Settings from Distiller, from the Adobe PDF printer, from the Adobe PDF menu in Microsoft Office applications (Windows), from the Print dialog box in many authoring applications, and from the Start menu on Windows. Regardless of where you access the settings from, the Adobe PDF Settings dialog box and the options it contains are the same. (The dialog box for setting printing preferences may be named Adobe PDF Printing Preferences, Adobe PDF Printing Defaults, or Adobe PDF Document Properties, depending on how you access it.)

In this first part of the lesson, you'll look at where you change the predefined (or default) Adobe PDF Settings and where you define custom Adobe PDF Settings. Since some of the options vary by platform (Windows or Mac OS), you should skip the sections that don't apply to your platform.
