Saving a le
Saving a document allows you to specify a name and location for the document le. The Save and Save Ascommands are located within the File menu. If you are saving a document for the rst time, either option will takeyou to the Save As dialog box. To save the le as a le type other than InDesign(.indd), select Export.A useful function in InDesign to remember when saving documents are the Adobe PDF Presets. They can befound under the File tab. There are 3 particular presets that are commonly used:
1. High Quality Print
Creates PDFs for quality printing on desktop printers and proong devices. This preset uses PDF 1.4 andleaves color unchanged.
2. Press Quality
Creates PDF les for high-quality print production (for example, for digital printing or for separationsto an imageseer or plateseer), but does not create les that are PDF/X-compliant. In this case, the quality of thecontent is the highest consideration. The objective is to maintain all the information in a PDF le that a commercialprinter or print service provider needs in order to print the document correctly.
Smallest File Size
Creates PDF les for displaying on the web or an intranet, or for distribution through an email system.This set of options uses compression, downsampling, and a relatively low image resolution.
