    I can read the PDF files via Adobe Reader but when trying to print these files it sends them to save to documents

  • Anonymous Mar 25, 2014

    When PDF files are downloaded from Gmail I cannot print them even though I can open and see them on Adobe Reader which is up to date. When I try it starts to go to print then sends them to save on documents.

I'm working in InDesign on a Mac, but I'm working for someone who wants me to mimic their Adobe Acrobat Distiller settings in Windows to create .pdfs for print. They want me to distill the pages...


Part of the OS has PDF built in. Create your document in the program of choice then select file print. One of your option on the bottom left of the print dialog is to print to pdf. Select that then hit okay and it will save the file as a pdf.

I don't know if I need to download Adobe Reader. What is it for? I use my computer mainly for emails.


If you download and install Adobe Reader, you can see .PDF files like insurance cards for your automobile for instance. Emails don't require .pdf file capability, usually, but traditional printed documents available online are usually put into the .pdf file format.

Translate a pagemaker file into indesign


This is from Adobe InDesign (CS3) Help module:
Convert PageMaker documents InDesign can convert document and template files from Adobe PageMaker 6.0 and later. When you open a PageMaker file, InDesign converts the original file information to native InDesign information. InDesign files are saved with an .indd filename extension.
For more information, see the PageMaker Conversion Guide (PDF) at www.adobe.com/go/learn_pmconv. Before opening the document in InDesign, you may want to do the following:
  • If the PageMaker file or its linked graphics are located on a network server, floppy disk, or removable drive, it may not open as expected if an interruption in data transfer occurs. To prevent data transfer problems, copy documents and their links to the hard disk, preferably in the same folder where the PageMaker publication is stored, before opening them in InDesign.
  • You may want to use Save As in PageMaker to clear unnecessary hidden data.
  • To ensure that all links are maintained, copy all linked files to the same folder where the PageMaker publication is stored.
  • Make sure that all necessary fonts are available in InDesign.
  • Repair broken graphics links in the PageMaker publication.
  • If you have a problem converting a large PageMaker document, convert portions of the PageMaker file separately to isolate the problem.
If you cannot open a corrupt PageMaker document in PageMaker, try opening it in InDesign. InDesign can recover most documents that PageMaker cannot open.
