I am getting registration marks and color bars in the PDF when using the Save As Certified PDF functionality from Instant PDF in InDesign and QuarkXpress?

Solution


1. Use another PDF Profile which hasn't got Problem Category Page Box Layout activated.

2. Or create (+ save) your own Indesign or QuarkXpress PDF export options preset (+ export it) and link it with your PDF Queue (category InDesign or QuarkXpress). Make sure you deactivate adding printing marks within the InDesign export options and as for QuarkXpress set registration to "off". Please note that QuarkXpress does not have a user interface to set and save PDF export settings. Instant PDF has added this functionality in QuarkXPress. You'll find it under Utilities in the QuarkXpress menu bar.

In case you defined PS Export instead of Direct PDF Export within category Indesign or QuarkXpress of your PDF Queue you need to create your own Quark Print Style with Registration set to "off" and link to it within category QuarkXpress of your PDF Queue. For InDesign you need to create your own Print Preset (+ save it) deactivating adding Printer Marks and link to it within category InDesign of your PDF Queue .
