File: Startup Example.ps End-user startup PostScript job file. Include any permanent PostScript into this file. This file will be executed as an "unencapsulated job"* each time the Acrobat Distiller application starts up. *See "PostScript(R) Language Reference Manual, Third Edition," Chapter 3.7.7 NOTE: This file will be overwritten each time you install Acrobat Distiller. We recommend you make a copy of this file to a different name and modify that copy. Each of the items below is presented as an example as is commented out. To actually use one of the examples, uncomment the line(s) of PostScript code by deleting the "%" character and modify to suit your needs. Please be aware that any PostScript code in this file which needs to access the filesystem must do so with fully qualified pathnames. Do not assume that a "current directory" exists.

In Acrobat 4.0 it was recommended to set the IdiomRecognition flag in a startup file. But in Acrobat 5.0 and later, blends conversion is controlled by a distillerparam (/DetectBlends) in the job options file, and is settable from Distiller's user interface.
