TIP 51: Basic Preflighting

Preflighting, the process of reviewing a PDF document to ensure that it meets specific printing requirements, is the traditional realm of the prepress world. But have you ever had t o prepare ads for a newspaper or a magazine? Or design brochures? Or create an annual report? I'd bet most people have had these types of experiences.

Proofreader's Marks

If you are working in print production and need to use traditional proofreading marks, build some custom stamps. Create the proofreading marks in an illustration program, and print as a PDF or export as a PDF. In Acrobat 7, choose Tools > Commenting > Stamp Tools > Create Custom Stamp. In the Select Image for Custom Stamp dialog, click Browse and locate your illustration (now a PDF). Click Select and the stamp is imported. Create a custom folder or add the stamp to your favorites; learn more about stamps in Chapter 14.
