Often I’ll see users having problems getting the results they desire when Publishing to PDF From CorelDRAW. It isn’t always evident where the problem lies as the users don’t give enough details. Those who do post the details seem to rely on the presets provided and don’t dig deeply into the many settings that are available.
When you Publish to PDF, go ahead and choose a preset that sounds right for the job you are exporting. Just don’t click Save right away. Click the settings button and review each of the settings available in the dialog that appears. This may take a few minutes the first time. Once you are familiar with the settings that give the desired results, save your own preset. After you know the best settings, it will take no time at all to get great PDF files the first time.
