TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
1. You can learn about compression settings by starting Distiller and selecting Help > Acrobat Guide > Setting Acrobat Distiller Options. Once you digest the information, set up the job options you want and save them to a new name.
2. In Word, the appearance on screen is determined by the default printer you select for the document. Be sure that, when you click the Create PDF button, you have Acrobat Distiller selected, rather than PDFWriter. Also go through ALL of the tabs and controls to ensure that you have the correct options selected throughout, then Apply those choices to save them as your defaults.
3. Start > Settings > Printers > Acrobat Distiller > Properties. Ensure that the driver associated with the printer is either the Adobe PS Acrobat Distiller driver or the AdobePS Default PostScript Printer driver. (They're different, and if one gives you poor results, you should use the other.) Check all the driver settings, too.
4. Back in Word, you can set up Acrobat Distiller as your default printer for the document. Once you have your compression settings right, the graphics should be fine.
