Preflighting

I'm sending a document with linked files to a printer. What do I have to do?

The term preflighting actually refers to the quality-control process used in the prepress industry to ensure that a project can be printed successfully. Entire software programs have been designed to handle the job from top to bottom. A small part of that massive undertaking applies to this particular subject: You should gather together copies of all the linked files in a single folder, along with copies of the fonts used. Unsure of what you need in that folder? Use the command File, Document Info. The Document Info palette contains windows that list both fonts and linked images in the document. You can change the content of the palette through its menu.
