Microsoft Office

By default, Acrobat® PDFMaker in Microsoft® Office creates PDF files using the Standard settings file, which doesn’t meet the requirements for most high-end printing.

  1. Select File > Print.
  2. In the print window that opens, select Adobe PDF as the name of your printer.
  3. Click the Properties button. Where it says Default Settings, choose PDF/X-4:2008 or else select an option that contains the prefix PDF/X-1a. If you do not have these options, then choose Press Quality.
  4. Be sure that the option to Rely on system fonts only; do not use document fonts, is unchecked.
  5. Click the Paper Quality tab. For a black & white project, be sure Black & White is selected, otherwise select Color.
  6. Click OK to close the properties window. Click OK again to begin producing the PDF. Subsequently another dialogue box will open to prompt you to give a file name and location for the PDF, after doing so, click Save to complete the process.
  7. Review the PDF in Acrobat 7.0 Professional or later.
