How to export a PDF file using InDesign CS and up.

These instructions apply to anyone using InDesign CS, CS2 or CS3. Before continuing, make sure your ad complies with Source Interlink Media's Digital Guidelines. Important Note: If you are using InDesign 2 or older, please see the instructions on how to create a PDF file using Acrobat. Although older versions of InDesign may export in a PDF format, the integrity of these PDF files do not comply with Source Interlink Media specifications.

Preflighting Within InDesign

• With your InDesign file open, choose File > Preflight... to ensure there are no RGB colors, font problems, or problems with images.
• In the Colors and Inks area, make sure that all spot colors have been converted to process.

A Export PDF Preset

• Choose File > Adobe PDF Presets > [PDF/X-1a: 2001] (InDesign CS2 and CS3) or
• File > Adobe PDF Presets > [PDF/X-1a]... (InDesign CS).
• An Export dialog box will appear.
• Name the PDF file and choose the directory in which the file should be saved.
• Click Save.

B Export PDF Settings

• An Export Adobe PDF dialog box will appear.
• Highlight the Marks and Bleeds option along the left side of the dialog box.
• In the Marks area, checkmark Crop Marks only. (Note that the Preset at the top has changed to [modified].)
• In the Bleed and Slug area, enter the value 0.125” in the fields for top, bottom, inside, and outside. (This step is not necessary for non-bleed ads.)
Please make sure that "Use Document Bleed Settings" is NOT checked.
• Click Export.
• Once completed, be sure to compare the PDF version of the ad with the original version.
