PDF File Formats

We now offer the ability to create PDF files for sending viewable/printable files between all computer platforms.

Although still somewhat problematic, PDF files allow you to create a file by printing your document to a PDF writer as though it were a printer. This format captures your fonts and graphics and includes them in a file that can be sent for easy printing. The Distiller Application from Adobe makes these files easier and more accurate to create. It is recommended that you have an Acrobat Reader application installed on your computer to view PDF files. (You can review your proofs on computer, make copies, or use PDFs like high quality faxes between computers, and more.) The link for downloading this free application is listed below. Additional assistance in the creation of PDF files is available through computing services or by calling the Printing Services Office at (785) 628-5381.

The Adobe Acrobat Reader lets you view and print PDF files on all major computer platforms.

Click here to download Acrobat Reader and information on making your own PDF format files.

Note: You will receive the most recent version of Acrobat Reader available for your language and platform.

Warnings

Acrobat PDF Writer may not always successfully process documents that contain Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) artwork or
images or documents that use features available only with PostScript printers. For documents with EPS, PDF Writer uses the
bitmap preview image that accompanies the EPS file instead of the EPS graphic itself.

If you are not getting satisfactory results with Acrobat PDF Writer, you may need to use Acrobat Distiller instead. Acrobat
PDF Writer is available only for Macintosh and Windows platforms. To create a PDF document from UNIX or DOS, you
must use Acrobat Distiller.

If you find that you would like Printing Services to make PDF files for you, this service will be made available upon request by calling (785) 628-5310.
