Importing a PDF Style & Exporting a PDF from Quark 7

These instructions apply to anyone using Quark 7. It is highly recommended that you have the latest version of Quark. Check www.quark.com for more information. Before continuing, make sure your ad complies with Source Interlink Media's Digital Guidelines.

 


Important Note: Quark 7 has the ability to directly export a PDF file, however you must download and use Source Interlink Media's PDF Style to create a PDF/X-1a file. If you have Quark 6 and Acrobat Standard or Professional (not Acrobat Reader) version 6 or higher, see the instructions on how to create a PDF/X-1a file. If you are a Quark 6 user who does not have access to Acrobat Standard or Professional, see the instructions on how to export a PDF directly from QuarkXpress 6.
