My question is specifically related to Adobe InDesign and how it handles pdf's made by Quark. I realize that this may be a little out of place, but I was hoping some of you have the privilege of working in or near a high tech art department, and might know the answer to this.
We received artwork from the customer in the form of a PDF that was created by QuarkExpress. We don't like Quark so we import the PDF into Adobe InDesign on a mac (10.6.5) (Adobe CS 5.0). It looks perfect in InDesign, but when we export it to PDF from InDesign we get some ugly graphics. I attached two screen shots that show the distortions that occur after the export. Again, when we view it in InDesign, it looks good. (note the registered trademark emblem as well as the edges of the blue circles)
Does anyone know of any settings that might cause this? I have tried turning off compression and several other settings related to the export. Are we doomed to use Quark?
If no one can help, does anyone know of a good resource for this sort of question short of paying adobe's per ticket support fee (we don't have a service agreement with them).
Thanks Experts, I have faith in you!
