  Canvas 6™ Technical Manual Project
Part 4B - Output The Document

Return To Technical Manual Project Index

7. Save the job options for future use and give it a name.


8. Now return to the Canvas 6 session where your document is loaded.


9. Click File > Print. You will see the Acrobat® Distiller® driver listed next to the "Printer" label in the upper left corner which was setup in an earlier step. Because we used GIF images instead of RGB EPS files, we need to output the file using the RGB color space (more on this here). If we were to use the CMYK color space and run it through Distiller the images would get "washed out". Also in this dialog I checked "Print to File". This may be just a fine point with Distiller. You can also send the output directly to Distiller without first creating a PostScript® file. However, Adobe® recommends sending the output to file then distilling it for slightly better results. Click "OK" when done.


10. Canvas will display a status window while it is preparing the output.


11. At this point it will prompt you for a filename and location for the PostScript file. Give it a name and click "OK".


12. At this point you can drag and drop the PRN file onto the Distiller icon. Even if you exited Distiller, the job options that were active when the program was shut down will be in effect when the PDF file is generated.
