I am making illustrator files and converting into pdf from illustrator. If I print from illustrator before converting, all text and pictures are printed correctly in black. But otherwise I can't get acrobat to print black text, only gray.

Yeesh I have a project due tomorrow!
I admit that I don't know much about either of these programs and color spaces and conversions boggle my mind... I don't know what I'm doing. Could someone tell me or point me to a resource that can help me choose the right settings? I am making a booklet to be printed at Kinkos. What settings do I need? I want it all in gray scale and can't compress picture files very much or they look awful. Any advice?

For years and years, many have predicted the decline of the PDF given its age and perceived disadvantages. Today, with the PDF losing ground in emerging areas like mobile and eBooks, the calls for its ultimate demise are growing louder.
