Currently, creating documents for proof review is a multi-step process:
Step 1: Quark creates .ps file in Watched Folder
Step 2: Distiller automatically creates pdf file.
Step 3: Open Acrobat. Hit Advanced | Batch Processing | Batch Sequence | Run Sequence [Open Options, Fit To Window + Page With Thumbnails, Save].
This seems to be way too many steps for a process [Watched Folder + Batch sequence] which is allegedly designed to make my life easier.
Why can't these steps be combined into an automated task at the Distiller level? Maybe a script? Or maybe as part of the distill? Why has this functionality been split to two products?
I ask you.
