Embed Distiller Settings in PDFs


When using Adobe Distiller to generate PDFs, you can tell it to embed the settings that it used to generate a PDF inside the PDF file itself. This can be useful for troubleshooting, or to automatically provide your joboptions file to an output provider. Here’s how:

In Distiller, choose either Settings> Edit Adobe PDF Settings or Edit> Watched Folders and choose the settings file you want to use. Click on the Advanced tab and then tick the checkbox labeled Save Adobe PDF Settings inside PDF file.

The actual joboptions file will then be included in the PDF file, and will be available via the Attachments tab in Acrobat.
