  QuarkXPress™ Technical Manual Project
Part 5B - Output The Document

Return To Technical Manual Project Index

8. Save the job options for future use and give it a name.


9. Now return to the QuarkXPress session where your document is loaded.


10. Before invoking the print command, if you haven't told Quark™ where to find the Distiller PPD (PostScript® Printer Definition file) then do so now. The PPD contains all the information Distiller® needs to output the job. click Utilities > PPD Manager. In the following dialog, if it is not listed, then click the "Browse" button to locate it. Navigate to the folder that contains the PPD. When Acrobat is installed on a Windows® system, it gets placed in the \Windows\System folder. Highlight the PPD file and click "Open". In Mac® OS systems it may be located in the System Folder:Extensions:Printer Descriptions folder or the Adobe Acrobat 3.0:Xtras folder or the Adobe Acrobat 4.0:Xtras folder - depending on which version you have.


11. Next click File > Print. There will be a dialog with six tabs. In the "Printer" tab choose "Acrobat® Distiller To FILE" (or whatever the name of the Distiller printer driver is on your system).


12. In the "Setup" tab, choose the Acrobat Distiller PPD (setup in a previous step) from the "Printer Description" pulldown. This is an important step. Make sure the paper size is set for "Letter" and the orientation is "Portrait".


13. Use the defaults in the "Output" tab.
