  • Quark Color Management

    Hi Forum,

    OK, i'm having a go at using color management and Quark 7.3 and Jaws pdf output.... bear with me.

    So i've set my Color Setups > Source and Color Setups > Outputs to reflect my working practices...
    I've set my Quark prefs > Color Manager to reflect my working practices...
    I've also set my Output Styles to reflect my required output...PDF/x-1a:2001 (intent ISOcoated)

    So, once the pdf/x-1a file is made, i review in Acrobat 8 Pro, the pdfx preflight / certification says that the output intent is 'Custom' ( Quark Generic CMYK ), which is incorrect as i've specified ISOcoated as the intent.

    Anybody come across this before, am i missing something here ?

    Appreciate any help offered,

    Regards,

    Nick.

    I would recommend getting Adobe to make the PDF, and just set up the Distiller PDF/X-1a joboptions with ISOcoatedv2 output intent, and save the joboptions as your custom name, and make a Watched folder in Distiller to make the PDF. Then set up a Quark 7 PDF export options and whenever you need to make a PDF, it can be done in a few clicks max.
