The difference in display quality between EPS and PDF only refers to the display quality *in*FrameMaker*. Once you make a PDF, there is no difference between the two, either on-screen or in print. The choice is of no consequence to your customer, only to your writers while they're working in FrameMaker.
And the best method for generating either EPS or PDF from CorelDraw is to print to the Adobe PDF printer, which creates a PDF directly. If you need EPS rather than PDF, you do a Save As from Acrobat 7.0. BTW, there are patches for Acrobat that bring it up to 7.0.8 rather than 7.0.0. My opinions only; I don't speak for Intel.

The > output PDF should be the same. Has anyone tried this and then had their manuals professionally printed? We've had the same problem as Mark for quite some time. Our current setup (FrameMaker 6.0p405 with Adobe Acrobat 7.0.0) displays EPS quite poorly. Admittedly we're using CorelDraw 10.427 to generate the EPS from a native CorelDraw vector image; and we've always blamed CorelDraw's rendering for the poor display. With more manuals going out as PDF-only, the display quality has become more of a concern than ever before. But if the print quality suffers because of improvements to the display quality - we gain nothing by changing the way we do things. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=--=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Rebecca Downey -- rdowney at matrox.com Matrox Imaging -- Technical Writer _______________________________________________ You are currently subscribed to Framers as fred.ridder at intel.com.
