The thinking is that you only need registration marks for a pre-press PDF, and that hyperlinks and other features that are enabled by the Generate Acrobat Data option are irrelevant for a PDF that will only be used to produce printed docs (unless you've got magic paper...). Pretty logical, actually.
My opinions only; I don't speak for Intel.

For whatever reason (I suspect someone will fill us in), you can't get registration marks with that option turned on. Hope this helps! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Linda G.

The publisher we use understandably needs registration marks on our pdf file to know where to trim the pages for publishing. My problem is this- I have figured out how to insert the registration marks when I convert to a pdf using the save as>pdf method. My boss, however, insists that I convert the book to a post script file and then distill to a pdf, which as far as I can tell removes the registration marks from the document- at least they don't appear in the pdf. I have been so frustrated for so long on this issue. Does anybody know how to insert the registration marks on the Frame files before converting to a post script and still have them appear on the pdf? I have searched through several months of archives of this list and only found one thread on this topic that had advice that didn't work for me. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Molly
