Installing PostScript printer drivers for PDF export



If you have a PostScript printer driver installed, Acrobat Distiller locates and uses that driver the first time you export to PDF in PageMaker. If you don't have a PostScript printer driver, you can use the AdobePS driver.

In Windows, you can install a PostScript printer driver even if you don't have a PostScript printer. If you're using Windows 98, install the Adobe PS driver from the PageMaker 7.0 Application CD. If you're using Windows NT or Windows 2000, install the appropriate Adobe PS driver for your system from the Adobe Web site:

In Mac OS, the AdobePS driver is installed automatically. You can set up a virtual AdobePS driver if you do not have a PostScript printer.

To set up a virtual printer in Mac OS:

1 Select PS Printer in the Chooser.

2 Choose Virtual Printer in the Type pop-up menu.

3 Click Setup, select the Distiller PPD, click Select, and then click OK.
