Free Acumen Journal newsletter for Feb. 2004

The free Acumen Journal presents two monthly articles, one — ‘The Acrobat User‘ — featuring advanced uses of Adobe Acrobat, and the second — ‘PostScript Tech‘ — covering some aspect of PostScript programming.

For February, the technical features by John Deubert of Acumen Training are:

  1. The Acrobat User: ‘Acrobat 6 Preflighting, Part 1’

    — Acrobat 6 introduced a built-in preflight feature that can give you a great deal of information about your PDF files and help you avoid problems. This month, Part 1, Deubert shows how to run a preflight session and interpret its results.
  2. PostScript Tech: ‘Setpagedevice and Mysteriously Blank Pages’

    — The setpagedevice operator is PostScript’s hook into printer specific features. It brought a much-needed consistency to PostScript Level 2. It also introduced a rare but very strange problem in some files: pages that unaccountably print blank.
