every time i export to pre press pdf file it does not safe the content of the file, only the crop marks (corel x5)

Try using a different PDF conversion software ...
This works just like a print function, but it prints to a file instead of onto paper. I have used this software for quite some time and I have never had a problem, though it is sometimes a little difficult to make sure page breaks from MS Notepad line up properly. Trial and error works with this system, since you can print to the PDF file, then view the PDF to make sure it looks perfect. There may be better software out there for this purpose, but this is effective and easy to use in a pinch.

Cannot duplex print pdf files. No problem for over 2 years until now. Word docs OK have tried changing printing settings and default but problem persists. Advice would be really appreciated. Thanks

Printing PDF files without special software can be a problem, if you print a lot of files of different formats and need to deal with a few printers.

Total PDF Printer from Coolutils is a program features a lot of printing modes and adjustable parameters that will help to optimize the process of printing PDF files. To save the paper, it offers ability to print PDF files in duplex mode, i.e. print PDF pages from both sides of paper sheet.

You do not need to turn each sheet by your hands, as the program changes printer settings so that this process is automated.

Total PDF Printer is a perfect suit for personal or professional use for printing PDF files. It automatically connects to all printers enabled in the system and redirects printing tasks to the trays you specify.
