Importing graphs to PageMaker
the graphs are created in 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
text logos and, in particular, special fonts should be converted
to paths. Large text areas (body text) should be left as text, but
it is important 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.
can without problems place TIFF and EPS pictures into 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 the printers.
FreeHand or Illustrator EPS imported to PageMaker may be scaled
almost without limits, but if it contains bitmap images, you
should keep within 60 to 120 percent limits.
FreeHand job should be saved as Macintosh EPS; also the FreeHand
document should be included in the file. Then it will be possible
to open the job in FreeHand for eventual editing.
