Topic: Finding 'resolution' in Distilled PDF file (in Acrobat 6)
Conf: (P-PDF) Beginners, Msg: 143301

I would like to know (after searching through every menu in Acrobat 6),
if there is a function available to know if the item was saved 'high res'?
We had a well-known newspaper phone us in a panic yesterday saying
we gave them a 'low res' file. We have Distiller settings for EVERY paper
and size of ad, so this would be nearly impossible to make a 'low res' file
from the Distiller setting...unless the Distiller setting was incorrect. In
other words, if I was sending the Wall St. Journal a 1/4 page ad, we
have a Distiller setting for WSJ_1/4pg...and that is what we choose; over
and over again....
Upon viewing the 'problem file' in Acrobat Professional at over 400%
there is no pixelization of graphics files, etc.
Is there a 'quick and easy' way to view file size (and/or know how the
file was saved) when the item is opened in Acrobat 6?
