graphs to QuarkXpress
the graphs are created in CorelDraw, Freehand, or Illustrator.
As with greyscale images, the graphs taken from image libraries
should be opened and saved in FreeHand in order to avoid
unnecessary printing problems. Attention should be paid
particularly on colour definitions: they must be, according to the
final layout work, either CMYK colours (process colour jobs) or
spot colours (spot colour jobs).
text logos and, in particular, special and TrueType fonts should
be converted to paths. Large text areas (body text) can be left as
text, as long as you remember to use Adobe Type 1 fonts (no
TrueType fonts!) and to make sure that the fonts can be found
at Acta Print. In Illustrator, the fonts may also be saved along
with the job in the same file. Adobe TypeMagager (ATM) is
almost necessary for managing fonts.
can without problems place TIFF and EPS pictures into Corel,
FreeHand, and Illustrator, as long as you don't forget to send
also the original files to the printer. You should avoid
unnecessary fades and too complicated paths, as they may block up
FreeHand or Illustrator EPS imported to QuarkXpress may be scaled
almost without limits, but if it contains bitmap images, you
should keep within 60 to 120 percent limits.
CorelDraw, the fonts can be converted to paths while saving in
EPS. The preview image should be an 8 bit TIFF colour picture with
72 dpi resolution. The placed bit map images should be left in
EPS file should be saved in PostScript Level 2 format; it should
not be compressed.
